Dog urine question
Well, we have a year old cockapoo. As a pup, now and then he'd get excited and pee on the hard wood floor...usually when I got home. We wiped it up with no problem. At other times he'd pee on our green carpet when he could not hold it or did not let us know he needed to go out. Sometimes a mark was left behind slightly lighter than the dark green carpet when dry. Thru some combination of concoctions, my wife usually made it all disappear. We thought we were pretty much past this since he is now a year old until....
He just had eye surgery and is on some meds that make him retain water and pee a lot. Much as we try to get him out more often, he still returns top the green carpet and pees.
So, first question, whats the best way to clean this up. Generally we abosrb as much as possible with a towel. Thats where my wife starts with her numerous bottles of stuff. Soemtimes a light stain remains and she goes back to her bottles. Would a bissel type carpet steem cleaner work better here? Whats the best clean up process? Whats are the best tools and chemicals? (He's our first dog so we are learning)
Second, if we ever replace the carpet, Would hard wood be better? What if he pees and sits on the wood for a few hours before we notice. Would it eat the finsish off? Change the color?
Thanks for the advise!
