There are a few things that could be causing extra harsh-smelling urine. An infection could be at work, or urine crystals or stones in the bladder. Your dog could also be dehydrated, making their urine more concentrated and potent. Check to see if your dog’s urine is dark in color.

Your dog's strong-smelling urine could be the result of something simple, such as a food she ate, or something more serious, such as an infection or disease. If you notice your pup "dribbling," straining, urinating in small amounts or experiencing an ongoing strong odor, make an appointment to see your vet.

One of them is smelling urine because it seems gross, messy, and just not appropriate. Yet, we should allow our dogs to smell their urine. It is their canine nature to smell everything in the world to make sure there is safety and familiar territory around.

Foul smells can indicate an infection. In this case, a fishy odor in dog urine is a big clue that they have a urinary tract infection. Sometimes this is the only symptom your dog has a UTI – and sometimes, this symptom is absent.

Dehydration is a condition that can cause the dog’s urine to develop a strong ammonia-like smell. Not have enough fluid in the body would result in a higher concentration of waste products in the urine. You might notice the dog urine is much darker than usual or more yellow in color. 2.

Other potential causes of smelly urine include crystalluria/uroliths (although the smell is probably just concentrated urine) and possibly neoplasia of the urinary tract, for example, a tumor growing in the bladder. Prostate disease in male dogs may also affect the smell of the urine. Urinalysis is a non-invasive, affordable, quick test.

After a carpet cleaning, the smell of pet urine may return. This is due to the gases released by the bacteria that are digesting the urine when the carpet is wet. If any of the urine remains in the rug fibers, it will continue to smell. The same is true for vomit, another common problem associated with pets and carpeting.
