Cleaning Up After Dogs
As well trained as our beloved dogs may or may not be we will still on occasion have that unexpected uh-oh. For cleaning up after dogs, we may keep on hand some form of cleaner that we picked up at Pet Store. Yet there are also many other more natural alternatives to be made from ingredients around our homes. Here are just a few tips.
Removing Dog Stains From Carpet
First things first, mix white vinegar and water and put it in a spray bottle. Spray the area and blot it dry. Next, sprinkle baking soda on the spot and let the baking soda sit over night. Vacuum it up the next day. You might also want to point a fan towards the stain to help it dry.
Removing Dog Stains From Linoleum Or Hardwood Floors
Mop with a 3:1 warm water and vinegar solution.
DON’T use ammonia to clean a urine stain. Urine smells too much like ammonia, so it might make your dog think that it’s an acceptable place to urinate.
The bonus of using vinegar is that dogs often don’t like the scent of vinegar, so it can keep them away from that area of your house.
Please Note: Changes in the volume of urine output can be indicative of medical conditions, such as kidney disease. If you are noticing excessive amounts of urination you may need to take your dog to the vet.
