    I think this is the right forum for this question. My new flip truck was a dog transporter. The smell of dog is literally unbearable.

    Any advice?

    There's no way I can sell it smelling like this haha.

    pressure wash the inside. except the headliner! "air sponge" air fresheners under the seats after you dry it out. it looks like a small plastic sourcream/cottage cheese container. not a strong perfume smell but it really sucks out the smells.

    I can't remember the specifics, but we've had a few threads on this.
    I think Gary said something about baking normal baking soda, then you let it sit in the vehicle.
    I want to try one of these. https://diamondairpurifiers.com/collections/diamond-air-the-deluxe-model

    I would pull out the carpet and pressure wash it.

    I used a carpet cleaning solvent In a can, I can't remember the brand but it made my bronco not smell like mold/cigarettes/weed/antifreeZe(heatercore) after I cleaned 90% of the inside with it besides the headliner, scrubbed it out with brush and towel to soak up some and aired out to dry. took a few hours but carpets look new and doesn't smell anymore! Also cleaned and armor all"d all the plastic inside. All this was when I first bought it years back. It's in a can and it's carpet and apolstry cleaner it's supposed to be sprayed on wiped/brushed out and the rest evaporates and left with clean fresh carpet most parts stores have a cheaper house brand which is what I bought

    My truck wasn't pet smell, it was smoke a few weeks after I had bought it. I soaked it in the original Febreeze. Spray it on heavy, then sit over night. Did this a few times with a good cleaning of the carpet and it stopped smelling after awhile.

    Pull the carpet out and hang it on a fence then hit it with mean green and dawn. Scrub it down then rinse. You will be amazed at what comes off.... Just because the smell is "gone" doesn't mean the nasty crap that caused it is. Its still there.
    Anytime I get something used, If I can, I spray it down with disinfectant spray, then mean green, then soak it down to wash. Including electronics. Some of the crap is nasty. As long as you let them dry, 99% of electronics survive water. Even computers. Just have to make sure all power is removed and is until subject is totally dry.

    Don't say what truck, but it might have a cabin filter in it, might be behind the glove box.

    Use pressure washer inside and then use air fresheners to get rid with smell.

    Take a chunk of hose from the exhaust and run it into the vehicle through a window, and exhaust it like you're doing a suicide scene for a Lifetime movie LOL

    At least then it'll reek like exhaust
