Dead mouse or squirrel inside wall

Q.  We have a horrible smell coming from a closet area which we are attributing to a dead mouse/squirrel between the studs.

Other than tearing out the Sheetrock to remove the carcass, any suggestions to reduce/eliminate the smell–which I understand can last for months.

A.  A dead mouse will only smell for a few days, a week at most. A dead squirrel is a different story; it will smell for a lot longer — but not for months. Try the product I recommend frequently to eliminate bad odors – Nok-Out. Nothing else I know of would be as effective, short of cutting out the drywall and removing the carcass and disinfecting the area.
