Molly is a female and killing the grass with her pee. Someone told me that there was an additive to her diet that would neutralize this effect. Anyone know about this? can you provide details.....Thanks
Yeah, it seems risky to me to give your dog something that will change his or her physiology, just for the sake of green grass. Just flood the area with water while the dog pee is still fresh and you won't have brown grass. Much, much safer.
The stuff I've seen is called "Naturvet Grass Saver" but I'm not sure how it works. Presumably it does something to the nitrogen content of the urine. Some people have noted in online reviews that eventually their dog stopped liking to eat it.
My dad of all people suggested this (he's a farmer)--apparently clover is resistant to urine! It's a plant that puts nitrogen in the soil (ie: soybeans), and not one that takes it out of the soil (ie: grass and corn), so it doesn't turn brown from the dog pee. He's also fairly obsessed with his lawn, so I think he learned this when he had dogs. Various internet searches will back him up. So maybe you could plant a small patch of clover or other urine-resistant plant, if one exists, in your yard and just teach Molly to pee only there. Also, if you fertilize your lawn, you may want to stop, as there is also nitrogen in most fertilizers.
