Issue 19: March 10
Dear Dr. Schelling,

Lately my dog has been having accidents in my home. I'm working on correcting this issue but am unsure about the best way to clean and rid my carpet of stains and odor. Any tips?


Dear Jeremy,

Dogs may urinate inside the home for many different reasons, including medical issues, behavioral problems, or excitement. When a pet continues to urinate in inappropriate areas you need to rule out medical and behavioral problems by a trip to your veterinarian or a behavioral specialist.

When accidents happen—this article will help you deal with them. Follow these steps to thoroughly clean up dog urine and eliminate odor. Not only will your home smell better, but your dog will also be less likely to urinate in the same spot since dogs tend to urinate where previous urine is detected.
