I have asthma and most cleaning solutions really make it worse. I discovered by accident, a great doggy odor clean up.

In an 8 oz. spray bottle put a capful of "no rinse body bath" and fill bottle with filtered water, give good shake. Then give dogs a gentle spritz to underside, rub, then to the topside, and rub.

Then spray solid coating to bedding and carpet and with broom give brushing. It even will make doggy "skid" marks completely disappear.

I use Natures Miracle from Petco. Works well for odors but you must wait until it is dry before the odor will be gone.

I would try one of the following:

To remove stain - I love Resolve carpet cleaner in pump spray. For any residual odor - white vinegar poured directly on carpet. Vinegar smell with disappear after a day or two.

Remember to pour enough to saturate the carpet, pad and any floorboard underneath - otherwise, the scent will just come back. (It won't harm color of items.)

I've always used a solution of vinegar and water on the area where my pets have had accidents. It not only "clears the air", but they don't seem to have an accident in the same place, so I don't think they can detect an odor either. I'd test the vinegar & water solution on an inconspicious area of your rug (if that's the problem area) to make sure that the vinegar solution won't discolor. Good luck! (09/17/2005)

I use a solution of 1/2 water, 1/4 vinegar and 1/2 lemon juice. I add about 10 drops each, per 20 ounces solution of pine needle essential oil and cedarwood essential oil. You can order the essential oils on line. Works great. You also might try using a belly band for your dog. YOu can order those on line or make your own. It's basically a band that attaches with velcro around your dogs waist area, covering his penis. It has a liquid absorbing pad that you can replace. I found these are great for inside dogs that mark and older dogs that just can't hold it. Good luck (01/27/2006)

My nine year old pug will use the hall carpet if she can't get outside. she has a kidney condition and it smells worst than dog pee. i use 1/2 tsp dish detergent (to clean), 1/2 cup white vinegar (to kill the smell) and 1/2 cup
hydrogen peroxide (to boil pee out of carpet). Soak up pee with an old towel, pour on enough solution to cover spot and let sit for 15 minutes. then soak up solution with old towels until it's as dry as you can it. spot test carpet first for color fastness. this really works. EllenW (01/28/2006)

Spray or pour white vinegar over the spot and let it set, it lifts the smell and absorbs the stain. It absolutely works better than anything I've ever tried! (05/16/2006)

Hello,

On your 13 year old pet. My dog had the same problem about urinating. Just here recently I had to have him put to sleep due to bladder cancer. Please have your pet checked for this. Check for blood in his urine. My dog had it for over a year before I even knew he was sick. Do this for your pet. It will be very hard to experience. My dog was 11 1/2 years old. (05/05/2008)

I bought a Little Green Machine because I have an 18 year old Golden(?)Chow. Plus 4 others that sometimes decide that it is easier to go in the house then go to the door. I have tried many carpet products and vinegar, etc. I have found that plain water in the Little Green Machine works wonderfully in getting out the stain and smell. (01/24/2009)
