If you're a dog owner, you may have noticed yellow spots showing up in your grass and wondered what is causing them. Believe it or not, your sweet furry friend may unwittingly be the cause. But it's not Fido's fault - man's best friend is just doing what nature demands - urinating on the lawn. If getting rid of yellow spots in your lawn is important to you, but getting rid of dog urine on your grass is unrealistic, then read on!

Why Does Dog Urine Kill Grass?

The current consensus among veterinarians is that the main culprit in pet urine that hurts grass is nitrogen. Because dogs, who are carnivores, eat high levels of protein, their bodies break it down and excrete it in their urine as nitrogen. While nitrogen is an essential component of healthy grass, too much of it may be lethal to your lawn. Dog urine grass dies off in patches, creating yellow spots with a characteristic green ring around the edges because that's where the urine was diluted enough to work well as a fertilizer.

How to Stop Yellow Spots in a Lawn from Dog Urine?

One solution to help stop dogs from leaving yellow spots in the yard is to use dog vitamins and supplements to change the composition of the dog's urine. Be sure to check with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet's diet. Here are a few NaturVet GrassSaver products that may help you:
