White vinegar takes out the odor, and cleans the carpet, too. It will not have a vinegar smell after it dries. I add one drop (one only) of dish detergent and a handful of terry rags and scrub scrub. You may have to do it twice, but the 'aroma' never returns and the animal will not smell it either so he/she won't go back to do it. It does work. I moved into an apt that had an old dog, and on the first humid day I smelled the offensive 'pee'. The vinegar remedy worked.
1/4 cup peroxide and 1 Teaspoon dish detergent, brush this in, this is for stains, allow to air dry and then vacuum. For smelly carpets use an enzymatic cleaner and follow directions OR do the home remedies using vinegar.
Make a solution of 1/2 a cup of vinegar and 1 quart of warm water, and drizzle or spray it on to the stained area. Place towels over the stain and weight it down with a heavy object. Once it is dry, use a brush to refresh the nap of the carpet.
To remove pet stains and odors, equally mix vinegar and water and apply to stain. Works better than any commercial cleaner.

I was fortunate enough to have a new product recommended to me by one of my maintenance crew. The product is called "Room Shocker" it's a fairly new product on the market so it's hard to find, but you can get it on a website called BiocideSystems.com. This product is so amazing I want tell the whole world, because I know how frustrating it is to keep trying different products that don't deliver. I can tell you, I've tried almost everything including enzyme neutralizing products and ozone machines. I can honestly say that nothing works as well as this product.
So far I've used it to get vomit smell out, (sorry, I know that's gross, but that is what I deal with) cigarette and cigar odors, funky body odor, moldy smell, and of course dog and cat urine. In all cases, I was amazed each time. I promise, I don't make a commission on this. The stuff really works! (10/10/2008)
Has anyone used the Haan steam cleaner on their carpet or furniture for pet accidents? Please help, I need to get the smell out of both badly.
