I just bought a bag of the Marshall good bye odor treats for my rats. I want to make sure the ingredients are safe and I'm also curious, if anyone has used these, does it really help reduce odor? Here is the list of ingredients:Chicken, Chicken Meal, Rice Starch, Glycerin, Potato Starch, Chicken Flavor, Yucca Shidagera, Salt, Lecithin, Amino Acids (Threonine, Tyrosine, Leucine, Phenylanine, Valine, Histidine, Isoleucine, Lysine, Arginine), Sorbic Acid (Natural Preservative), Iron Oxides

I would just use vanilla extract the actual stuff not the artificial stuff. You just put 1-2 drops in their water bottle, also offer another water bottle without it in it. It starts working in a few days.

I've never used the treats, but the liquid Good Bye Odor works great.

Vanilla doesn't work as well as the Good Bye Odor.

My rat has never had any problems with it. It doesn't prevent her from drinking either. For me, it's the perfect way to cut down/eliminate urine/feces odors. Of course, I also do daily cleaning. So, I can't say how well it works, if a person only cleans the litter pan once a week.

I also use it for my cat. She's quite old and she hasn't had any problems from it either.

I use the one for cats for my cat. I use the small animal one for my rat.

Thanks! I went to the petstore to pick some up but they only had it for ferrets. I figured this WASN'T the right one. Anyone know where I can pick some up, or do I just need to get it online?

So it says to add a pump into pets water each day. Since I'm assuming you use the water bottle... do you just put several pumps in the bottle (say 7 pumps if a water bottle lasts a week) or are you switching it out everyday?

I use 2 water bottles. I fill each one half way. I put 1 pump in each bottle. I change 1 bottle everyday. So, each bottle gets changed every other day.

One of my friends has 3 rats. She uses one bottle and puts 2 pumps in it. She changes the bottle everyday. They pretty much drink that much water a day, so it works out well for her rats.

I have another friend that puts 2 pumps in and when the water bottle is empty.... She refills it and puts in 2 pumps again. That seems to work well for her rats.

I think 7 pumps in a water bottle would be "way to much".
