    Pedro was checked by a Vet about 5 mos ago and found to be
    in good health. the odors came into play since then. I was
    asking about something that might clear up the odor problem
    and a local source told me that Yogurt can help in some
    species? I am going to get some yogurt, both Greek and regular
    today and see if it helps? Any other ideas?
