How To Prevent ‘Piddle Patches’ On The Lawn

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
Owners of female dogs (bitches) are only too aware of the presence of ‘piddle patches’ or urine scalds in the middle of the lawn. This unsightly condition can often be minimised by paying attention to her diet.
Buy a stock of low-cost tinned, chopped tomatoes from the supermarket. Buy the cheapest you can find.
Put through a liquidiser and keep refrigerated. A large tin will provide a week's supply.
Add a tablespoon to her main meal each day. Most dogs will eat tomatoes without any problem.
Until the tomatoes begin to neutralise the urine, make sure that any patches are immediately soaked with water. This remedy is recommended by a homeopathic vet, and only works if tinned tomatoes are used.
