3) You might be treating a surface stain, but this does nothing to clean the padding. That’s where the odor comes from. That’s where bacteria grows. You have to kill what’s in the padding to make the carpet clean and to stop it from smelling.
It might sound strange to think that something as pungent as vinegar removes odors, but it does. Some pet odors, like a dog’s body funk that seeps into your linens or couch, are the result of alkaline chemicals, which the acids in vinegar neutralize, just as baking soda neutralizes acid odors.

I have three Scotties. Cushing’s disease will cause a dog to pee a lot, drink a lot of water and you should check with your vet for diagnosis and medication. Currently have one that has it and previously had one that had it. Evidently it is fairly common in certain breeds. And urinary tract infections will also make doggies pee more frequently.
He explains, “Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if a ‘fishy’ smell is coming from the urine or the vagina The most common cause of a fishy smell is usually related to common vaginal infections such as trichomoniasis, gardnerella, or bacterial vaginosis.”
This isn’t the cleaner you’re looking for if you’ve got a huge, carpeted home. But if you’ve got small spots of carpet that occasionally become the plaything of your favorite furred companion it’s a great way to handle things without having to pay for a full upright.

Thanks Dreamhowl, I hope Murdoch, my JRT is not embarrassed that his picture is being shared across the Internet, portraying him as a slightly incontinent elderly terrier! It will do his street cred no good at all!
Use an air purifier. Trap stinky dander, fur, and other odor sources with an air purifier equipped with a HEPA filter. If you have allergies, this solution is doubly awesome, because these filters reduce dust and other allergens in the air.
Using small piece of soap and a bit of water make a cleaning soapy liquid. The resulting soapy liquid is applied on the smelling surface. Wait for approximately 10 minutes. With the wet sponge remove the remaining soap and wash the spot.
After I walked on the salt I noticed some dampness pulling through. I put down the salt then paper towels to walk on over that. No moisture is showing on the paper towels. How long do I let the salt down before I do the vinegar and water. my dog is old (14) I had him for 12 years this is the first time we had such a problem. Carpet and padding are brand new.
anything with enzymes will work in a spray bottle also , i have same issue ! going to have to replace carpet and not sure what to put back down ! have you tried some pee pads ? just lay a couple down at night !
Suggestions are provided on how much water to consume daily; the common “eight glasses per day” recommendation is overgeneralized, and you should instead pay attention to your body’s own individual cues
Blue RARE: Artificial colors in foods or drugs; bilirubin; medications such as methylene blue; unusual UTIs Usually benign; consult your physician if it persists, especially if you have pain or burning (dysuria), and/or frequent urination (polyuria), which are symptoms of UTI
UTIs tend to affect women and girls more, but men and boys can also develop UTIs. These infections are the result of bacteria entering the urinary tract. The bacteria make urine smell unpleasant and cause it to be cloudy or bloody.
CR’s take: For carpet cleaners, this is where it gets tricky: Both of the higher-performing Bissell models on this list have “pet” in their names. This one does, too, but that’s where the similarity ends. Unlike the two Bissells covered above, the Deep Clean Deluxe Pet is only so-so at cleaning and worse than that at leaving a dry carpet behind, scoring a Poor. It’s also several pounds heavier when full of solution—36 pounds, so it can be a bit unwieldy. The ironic part? It costs more than our two top Bissell picks, proving that the price-quality relationship doesn’t always bear out.
The stain trapper is helpful in removing tough pet stains. Cleanshot Trigger technology is a function that directs the formula straight to the stains, which means that it will be easier to clean tough stains.
Sally grew up in a feline-only home, but cat allergies in her early 20’s made it an easy transition to dog ownership. And she couldn’t be happier with her canine shadow, who’s been at her side (literally) for years. No longer a cat person for obvious reasons, Sally is now a true bone-ified dog lover.

If you have thick carpeting and padding, like I do, it does NOT work well at all. I spent the better part of half an hour attempting to get the water sucked out of the stairs with the hand tool. In order to get it to work well, you have to press down HARD, otherwise, it doesn’t suck the water out completely. No problem? Well, the brush works basically with the suction. When you press hard (being a weak upper body person, that meant I had to throw my weight into it), it stops the brushes from spinning. Kind of the entire idea of the tool, I would think. I ended up using the entire shampooer, not the tool on the larger/curved stairs at the bottom of our staircase and the tool to complete the top thinner stairs-which there are more of, hence the half hour cleaning time for 22 stairs. Basically, the stair tool is a “dud”, in my opinion, unless you have thin carpet. Even then, I think the brush spins rather weakly, making it not really a scrubbing tool. I still LOVE this shampooer and have very thick carpeting and padding which is able to be walked on within 2 hours and bone dry after 4-5 due to the great suction on this machine.
