In general, I like pets. I think they can be cuddly and fun and friendly. One of things I don't like, however, is pet odor. If I'm going to have a pet, I don't want it to make my house smell any different. That's just not cool. If you've noticed a distinctly unpleasant smell emitting from your canine or feline, then it's time to take some action.
Brewer's yeast is traditionally used with brewing beer (go figure). In the brewing process, the type of beer produced is largely dependent on the type of yeast you use. However, in the context of your smelly pets, this is inconsequential. Brewer's yeast is often an ingredient in pet foods or other pet supplements, but if your food doesn't have brewer's yeast added, you can just mix in the yeast yourself. Use a teaspoon of yeast for a cat and a tablespoon for a dog.
If you don't want to add the yeast yourself, you can look for various tablets or foods that do contain the yeast. It will have the proper amounts of the yeast and probably will contain other nutrients your pet will benefit from. The change may not come immediately, but keep spiking your pet's food with the yeast and you will notice a significant decline in the amount of odor your animal produces. Smells are never good and any way you can reduce those smells is a good way.
Also, keep in mind that the smell may also be because of poor care. Make sure you wash your pets and that you take good care of your pets in all other areas. Smells are never good and if you can find a way to reduce those smells, then by all means do it.
