Imperial, California (NAPSI) - As your nose knows, your beloved pet can make a stinky mess—but there are simple ways by which you can cope.

For starters, be sure your pet is of a size suitable to your environment, your dog is walked promptly and properly, your cat has enough fresh litter and your small animals’ cage gets cleaned regularly.

If your pet still poops, pees or pukes around the house, you can turn to a new way to stop the smell.

Most ordinary cleaning methods merely spread odor-causing bacteria around without killing it, so the smell comes back.

The new solution kills the bacteria and leaves the treated surface thoroughly disinfected and sanitized. Called Performacide Hard Surface Disinfectant, its patented delivery system creates safe and precise concentrations of chlorine dioxide—long the choice of professionals to eliminate the toughest odors—in liquid form to treat hard surfaces.

It’s as simple to use as making a cup of tea; just place the pouch into water to generate the chlorine dioxide, one of the most effective ways to control and eradicate odor-causing bacteria and many viruses, even the dangerous parvovirus.
