What Essential Oils Deter Cats from Peeing? Cats and dogs will constantly ‘go’ in the house if they are stressed or anxious. Inappropriate urination is one of the most common problems pet owners face.
Dog and cat urine has a very distinctive smell, which some people cannot stand. Not only does it have a pungent aroma, but it also leaves unsightly stains on carpets and furniture. This can be a nightmare to get rid of because the damage has already been done while trying to figure out how you’re going to remove that nasty smell from your home.
For cat lovers, this may not always be good news as cats tend to urinate near doors and windows where their litter box just so happens to be located. So when guests come for a visit, you may either have to let them in and risk them smelling the foul odor or ask for their discretion.
It is also important to note that there are many causes of urine marking and it’s not always because your cat or dog is feeling anxious. Bladder infections, kidney problems among other health issues can cause your pet to urinate frequently around the house. If this happens very often, consider taking your pet to the vet for a check-up – especially if they happen to be male cats!
