I wanted to share my story in order to help others with their fur baby as well as seek advice/help for my fur baby.

We still advise against their use in pregnancy, but only for theoretical reasons.

I found a person on the MSN body odor support forum who had a bad odor for a long time and then the odor went away after being treated for H.
