Dog Food Additives Cause Dog Urine to Burn Grass

dog food additivesIf there is one thing that can wreak havoc on a yard or house, it’s dog urine. Frustrated dog owners routinely seek out products and home remedies that will do away with the garish yellow spots on their lawn and the smells in their carpet.

Dog Food Additives in Pet Food

One does not have to look hard to see there is a large market of these products to be had. However, when one product does not work desperate pet owners will spend their hard earned cash on yet another. The cycle is bound to go on and on unless and until a pet owner recognizes that stopping these problems must start with the source: their dog’s diet.

Commercial pet foods are rife with a laundry list of chemical dog food additives a dog’s physiology was never designed to process. When such a diet is ingested on a daily basis, all those chemicals have to go somewhere. While some are excreted through the skin, others are excreted when a dog goes to the bathroom.

The result is acrid dog urine that also turns grass yellow. The chemicals in the urine have a way of lingering for months and sometimes even years at a time. This can make a home or yard a most unpleasant and dangerous environment for both dogs and their owners.

As stated by Dr. Tom Lonsdale, BVet Med, MRCVS, of commercial pet food diets:

Junk food is laden with colorants, preservatives, humectants and a raft of other strange chemical additives-none of with any nutritive value and all toxic to varying degrees… “

The Ravages of a Commercial Pet Food Diet

If chemical dog food additives in a dog’s diet can pass out of its body and turn grass yellow, just think what those same chemicals are doing to a canine companion’s insides. While saving a lawn and a home from the ravages of dog urine is an understandable goal, pet owners should be more concerned with saving their dog from the ravages of a commercial pet food diet.

More than likely, a dog is suffering an imbalance in its system thanks to nutrients that are completely inadequate to support the canine physiology. Getting rid of canned or bagged dry dog food will do two things: help a dog get healthy and a help dog owner do away with bad odors and yellow spots on the lawn.

It’s also important to understand that brands of dog food are not impotrtant. If the dog food is cooked, processed and chemical additives used to fortify it, then it’s not natural to your dogs biology and their body will slowly over time suffer premature deterioration.

  1. Hello there,
    I have read through your above article regarding urine burns being eliminated by feeding raw.. and honestly would have to disagree with you. We have been feeding a balanced diet of completely raw for quite the number of years now.. and our grass is still very much burnt from our girls. Am I missing something?

  2. Hi Marcella
    I’ve been facinated by this comment for a while and thankyou for posting it.

    With my dog and many others who start my diet recommendations grass burns have not been the case. I have been looking at the ingredients in the diet and to be honest, i’m not sure what it could be but have some ideas. First one is raw green tripe-I feed this 2/3 times per week and awesome food as it’s so well rounded in it’s nutrient profile. Definitely no burns from this as i’ve tested it.

    Other than tripe I bet your feeding more or less the same food ie meat on the bone and i’m not getting the burns you speak of. Let me know your diet regime and i’ll cross reference it and see if I can come to some conclusions.

    All the best.
