Our condo smells...like poo

Our boys go inside using Ugodog during the winter months. Our condo is really small, less than 1,000 sq feet...the perks (sarcasm) of living in downtown Chicago. We have the Ugodog in our guest bathroom. When the boys do their thing and it's mushy number two, the whole condo smells. Now we have 2 foster puppies too. With 4 dogs on ugodog and puppy pads, we feel we are surrounded by poo all day long. Our condo SMELLS. We always flush the poop away and change the pads once we figure out they went. We tried burning scented candles from Yankee Candle and Bath and Body Works. We tried diffusers from Bed Bath and Beyond. We tried spraying Lysol Neutra Air. We are out of ideas for an economical, long lasting method to make the condo smells good. We also have a $400 HEPA air filter running 24/7. Please help!!!!

Try Don Aslett's Super Concentrated X-O Neutralizer. I bought this of QVC. I spray any suspicious stains down with it, and it goes a long way. Here is the Item # V28258.
If it does not work, then send it back within 30 days and they refund your money, no questions asked.
I hope it works.

Unfortunately, it may just be a case of too many dogs in too small a space. Using scents to cover up other scents usually isn't very effective. Do you have a vented fan in that bathroom that you could keep running?

Part of the problem may be the mushy factor. Why is their stool soft? You may want to address that fact as part of your odor control. Healthy stools will be firm and well formed, not mushy.

This probably sounds silly but, do a thorough search of your condo. Someone may be using hidden spots as a potty area.

Try "Get Serious!" cleaner. We've used it for years on all sorts of potty messes and it really does help clear away the odor. It's designed for carpet use, but we've used it to scrub concrete and tile and it still works wonders so it should work on the screen part of the Ugodog.

It's available from Pet Edge and Amazon. PetSmart carries it on their shelves, at least they do here in Southern CA.

Seriously, I cannot tell you how good this stuff is..you have to just try it. Here's a good price and vendor:




Riley had horrid diarrea. It was everywhere: walls, carpet, furniture. This handled it. It removed stains, handled odor and basically saved my sanity. Nuff said.

Jean, Riley and Zeus!

We live in a 1400 sqft condo, so I feel your pain! I use Febreze air spray and fabric refresher (two different products). They are both safe for animals and they REALLY get the smell out. We have an air filter going in 2 of our 3 rooms, so that kind of acts like a fan. It actually smells great in our place! Give it a shot Hope you're able to make the place smell good again!

That poo-pourri stuff sounds interesting. I am going to buy some, but not for the dog. My husband could probably use that.

Thanks for the advices! As for the loose stool, we already told the boys to the vet and we are giving them a blend diet to help with the diarrhea. We will try the various cleaners you guys suggest. We currently use Simple Solution which isn't all that great.
