This is great information to get rid of pet odors. I know with my bunch of dogs we go through lots of vinegar and notice that is one of the ingredients here for odors. I notice in the dog urine odor recipe orange dish liquid and wild orange Essential Oils are used. Are you able to use other Essential Oils or is this the one that does the best job?

    Thank You Ms Briley

    I appreciate you reading and commenting on Dog Odor Remedies,
    even though there are other essential oils you can use for dog odors
    orange dish liquid and wild orange essential oils are the combination
    which I have found works the best.

    Take Care
