why does my dogs urine smell like ammonia

Waste products in urine often have an odor, but urine is usually diluted enough that the waste products donвt smell. However, if the urine becomes more concentrated в meaning there is a greater amount of waste products in relation to fluids в the urine is more likely to smell like ammonia. Urea is one of the waste products found in urine. Itвs a byproduct of the breakdown of protein and can be broken down further to ammonia in certain situations. Therefore, many conditions that result in concentrated urine can cause urine that smells like ammonia. Stones in the bladder or kidneys can build up due to excess waste products in the bladder. Additional symptoms of bladder stones include:
Bladder stones themselves can be caused by a variety of conditions. Not having enough fluid circulating in the body means the kidneys are more likely to hold onto water, yet release waste products.


As a result, the urine may be more concentrated and smell like ammonia. If your urine is darker in color and youвre passing only small amounts of urine, you may be dehydrated. A bladder infection or other infection impacting the urinary tract can lead to urine that smells like ammonia. Other symptoms associated with a UTI include: In most cases UTIs are caused by bacteria. Sometimes urine smells like ammonia due to a unique combination of foods. This is not usually cause for concern unless itвs accompanied by other uncomfortable symptoms. Also I recommend you baby pampers. I know sounds ridiculous, however I have the same problem with one of my cats.


The only thing is that my cat knows what is cat litter but he refuses to use for wee the littler so he used my curtains. Basically what you can do is ; check the size of your dog and buy some baby pampers, make a hole for the tail and before you put the pampers on him get rid of the small powder from the nappy s hole. Or you an buy the tesco version which is made from cotton. However the dog is quite young ( and he chews allot ) so I can recommend to lock online after dog nappy s, they are a bit more expensive but they are made from some waterproof material and can be washed. the reason I rather recommend the dog nappy s is because the baby pampers is a bit more easy to be destroyed. This option is yours but if there is little time to get the dog house trained well you can go along with the nappy s.


Of course you have to start putting them over the weekend when you have more time to spend with your do and in this way he can get used with the knickers :laugh:. It was about 12-13 years ago when we had the same problem with one of my female dogs. She was 3 and half months when we adopted her, but she spend all her life -since she was new born pup till the day we got her- out side in kennels and she was used to wee everywhere. so since the age of 4 months till 5-6 months she used the nappyes in doors after that one day I think she decided enough is enough and that was it. I should take the dog to Vet as most of people here told you, You better have a check on her rather then have any regrets.
