Does Bi-Odor really work?

I was wondering if any of you have ever use it before or are using it right now? Does it really work and help eliminate the body odor and feces odor?

Yeah, me neither. But I live in a small apartment and my new ferrets(I'm getting 2 ferrets sometime in the next couple weeks, I'm so excited!) will have their cage in the livingroom so I don't want it to smell when I have guests over, you know?

I want to do some research on it first though. I don't want to give them anything that could harm them. They sell the stuff at Petco, I read about it online. All the reviews say it works wonders.

I think you just put a little in the food or water and it helps eliminate body and poo odors. I just want to see if anyone has had success/failure with it.

We used it when we first brought Toffee home. I really don't remember it doing much. Then one of my friends said she would never use it as you are adding a chemical for them to ingest and you just never know what it might do. I thought about that and decided Toffee would be better without it. I really can't say I could tell a difference when she was on or off it.

Nope, doesn't work. Complete BS.

It doesn't really add chemicals either. All it really is is a solution of amino acids and a salt or two haha. It's stupid. What a scam.

The best way to reduce ferrety smell is to simply clean their litter box often and feed them a good quality food.

It's good they don't eat Marshalls...it's a low quality food that makes their poop STINK hahaha .

Iams cat food is about on the same level as Marshalls because of the corn and wheat it has in it. That's usually not too healthy for a ferret. Higher end ferret foods to choose from:

Innova Evo
Eukanuba Adult Lamb & Rice
Innova Feline
ZuPreem Ferret
8in1 Ultimate
Eukanuba Adult Chicken & Rice
Eukanuba Kitten Chicken & Rice

I feed a blend of ZuPreem and Innova Evo...usually just mix about 1/2 and 1/2. That way if they're missing something in one food, they'll get it from another. It also keeps them happy because it's multiple tastes in one...I fear they'd get bored with the same kibble all the time.

Hope that helps.

You can get the Eukanuba and ZuPreem foods at most petsmarts and petcos. Might even be able to get 8in1 Ultimate. Just take the list with you when you go in and check em out. The Eukanubas will be in the cat section, whereas ZuPreem and 8in1 will be in the ferret section. The others are a bit more difficult to find, but I have seen them around.

Hows your ferret doing now?

Petco sells the 8-in-1 ultimate. Problem is, I just was reading the ingredients on the web yesterday and it listed fish in the ingredients! Isn't that bad? I thought fish makes the poo stink?

Yeah it does...I didn't feel like explaining that part, but the fish is a component of the food that'll make their poo smell. However, it's still a good quality food. In this case the bad smell isn't caused by the quality of the food, but just by an ingredient.
