Peeing problem

Recommended Posts

Need a little input here for a first time dog owner -- I have a 11 month lab that pees in the yard and in the fall i noticed it was killing the grass. My buddy gives his dog some yeast pills to prevent this and swears it works. Will the yeast pills do that or is there something better that will help? Also, about a month after I started giving her the yeast pills she game down with a bladder infection that doesn't seem to go away. she pees about once an hour in the eveining, but has no problem when she is in the kennel during the day, kinda weird. The vet put her on some pills to get rid of it, but after a week or more it doesn't seem to help. Would the yeast pills cause the infection?

if you want to get rid of the stains the safest way is to have her spayed. I have never given my dogs any suplamental pill to rid the dying of my grass. Contact you vet to see if there is a pill to be used for this problem, otherwise spay her and that will do it. Good luck and have fun.

Thanks -- That is easy an easy solution since she is spayed now. Why does spaying stop the grass from being stainded?

Spaying didn't help me at all. Maybe for some it work's and maybe not for others. Ask your vet!! I once heard that tomato juice works, although I have never tried it.

GOOD LUCK

The reason she is killing your grass is because the PH in her urine is too acidic for the PH of your lawn. Tomato juice will help because it will lower the PH in her urine. Another good idea is to apply lime to your entire yard every spring. This will change the PH of your lawn so the urine and the grass are about the same. You may notice some burning of the lawn after that but it will be much less.

I have heard about adding tomato juice to the water to change the acidity too. Not sure it works yet. The easiest is to fortify your yard with the lime as stated before.

Spaying never helped me. There are pills to give them and a powder to put on their food. There is also a seed mix to fix lawn spots. Try this site
