Dog urine kills the lawn - how to protect grass from dog urine 2021
Posted by Joe Walls on April 9th, 2021
Dog urine on grass is a common problem for dog owners. Dog urine can cause unsightly stains on your lawn and kill grass. There are many things you can do to protect your grass from damaging your dog's urine. Kinpur has put together the most effective tips for you on how to get rid of grass stains.
Is dog urine on the grass really a problem?
Believe it or not, dog urine isn't as bad as many people think. Sometimes you can blame your dog for brown or yellow spots on the lawn when it is actually the herbal fungus causing the problem.
To determine if dog urine is killing lawn or grass fungus, simply pull up the affected grass. If the grass rises easily in this area, it is a fungus. If it remains hard, it is damage to the dog's urine.
Another indicator that the dog's urine is killing the lawn is that the stain will be bright green around the edges, but the fungus stain will not.
How to protect grass from dog urine
The easiest way to protect the grass from dog urine is to teach your dog to always do his business in one part of the yard. This will ensure that the damage to the lawn is contained in one part of the yard. This method also has the added benefit of cleaning your dog's post easily.
If your dog is smaller (or you can find a really large litter box), you can also try a litter box training your pet.
You can also teach your dog to walk in public places such as parks and dog walks. Remember, however, that many areas have laws on cleaning up after your dog, so make sure you are doing your civic duty and taking out your dog's fool.
Changing your dog's diet to stop the lawn killing dog urine
Changes to the way you feed your dog can help reduce damage from your dog's urine on the grass. Adding salt to your dog's food will encourage him to drink more, which will dissolve harmful chemicals in the urine. Also, make sure you provide enough water for your dog. If the dog does not get enough water, the urine becomes concentrated and more harmful.
We also recommend using Green Lawn Immune Treats in your dog's diet - it's a really good solution to support your dog's immunity and get rid of stains on the lawn!
Reducing the amount of protein in your food can also help keep your dog's urine away from the lawn.
Before making any changes to your dog's diet, be sure to talk to your veterinarian. Some dogs cannot take too much salt, while others need extra protein to stay healthy, and your veterinarian will be able to tell you if these changes will harm your dog or not.
If you are re-sowing your lawn, you may want to consider replacing the grass with one that is more urine-resistant. Fez and perennial ryegrass tend to be more hardy. But keep in mind that replacing the grass alone will not solve your dog's urine problem on the grass. Your dog's urine will still damage urine-resistant grass, but the grass will take longer and will be better able to recover from damage.
