    Poor smell

    I have a problem with strong smell at home... I think it's because of my guinea pig
    So I have 2 questions:
    1) Why the smell (really bad) may appear? Maybe it's something about the changes in my pet's organism? Or something like that? If yes, then what should I do?
    2) Please, recommend me some air purifiers for pets. I found a review on them, I include the link to my post for jonsguide review, but I still need an advice from a person who uses it.
    Thank you!

    How often are you cleaning the cage?

    What are you using for bedding?

    How large is the cage?

    Air purifiers will help with allergens, but not with odors from a cage that needs to be cleaned.

    Bad smell is due to improper care, improper cage maintenance or due to some disease in guinea pigs. Guinea pigs like to keep them clean however, their living environment might not be as clean as they are.

    As for a great air purifier I would highly recommend Levoit Air Purifier with True HEPA, Active Charcoal Filter, Odor... we got ours from amazon.
