I find that Epi-Otic (Virbac) ear cleanser eliminates the stench of anal sac secretions and tomcat urine and leaves a clean, deodorizing scent. After expressing anal sacs, I wipe the perianal area with Epi-Otic-soaked gauze sponges to remove any remaining smell. Clients appreciate this effort, and it makes giving the patient a bath unnecessary.

To rid stained clothing or other surfaces of lingering odors, apply the cleanser directly and generously to the stained item and let it penetrate for several minutes or until the odor has been eliminated.
