How do you get the smell of Dog urine out of your carpets?

I had a dog that was really old, he got to the point that he could not hold his urine. We tried diapers but he would rip them off, he would only pee in one spot in front of my desk in the office. I have shampooed the carpet in that area like 10 times and you can still smell it. What should I do?

  • Eww...good luck with that! I would rip the carpet up, use some Kilz, and put new carpet down!

  • I have 3 dogs and 2 puppies - I forgot how long it takes to potty train puppies!!! I love Sol-U-Mel - I dilute it in a spray bottle and spray it on the accident (after I absorb what I can with a cloth or paper towel) the stain and the odor come out! It's reasonable and all natural.

  • I'll say try Arm & Hammer Pet Carpet Freshner & see if that will work.

  • According the the "Queen of Clean" ( I Love her!!): Neutralize pet urine odor with diluted white vinegar (25 percent vinegar to 75 percent water) sprayed on carpets. Always test in an inconspicuous spot before treating a large area.

  • Problem is, if it's soaked in to the subflooring, you're just going to have to replace it. Good luck
