Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

My dog peed on our couch this morning. He's 3.5 years old and has NEVER done this before. Does anyone have any decent advice for cleaning the cushions? The cushions are made out of foam. Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated!

Weird. I bet he has a UTI. As for the cushions, are they one big piece of foam, or is it like a foam filler in tiny pieces?

He was on 10 days of Cortisone pills after being treated for a hot spot. We were told by the vet to expect that he would have to go more because of the side effects. He did have 2 accidents on his bed during that 10 day period, which was understandable. However, about 10 days post medication, he peed on his bed 2 more times. He is in a transition period right now since we have been living with our In-Laws. He has recently gotten used to having company almost all day long as my MIL is retired. However, in the summer she travels up north to NH for weeks at a time. I personally think he is developing some separation anxiety. He wants to come with us whereever we go and not be left alone. We typically give him a high value treat when we leave the house, and he's happy as can be. We never have any other issues with him. I went to the gym at 6:00am, Qannik was still sleeping and didn't want to get up, and my husband left for work. (Side note: Q has always been unbelievable with holding his bladder. And not that we make him, he is just a very chill dog, and doesn't ever rush to go out in the morning to do his business. Plus he isn't a heavy water drinker). Anyway, when I came home from the gym, he had totally emptied his bladder. And the cushions on solid pieces of foam. Probably 2'X2'. As for the UTI, he isn't peeing any more than normal at any other point in the day. Everything else seems totally normal. One other side note, is that he's hot at night. My MIL has central air, but doesn't like to put it on very much, so even though it's on, the house is registering at 75 degrees. He's just too hot. We have a fan in front of his bed to help, but I do hear him go for water in the night. Wondering if that could be part of the issue too. I generally just think it's a combination of things right now. Just really sucks because it's not my couch. If it were mine, I wouldn't be 1/2 as upset or stressed about it.

Thanks! I'm having the cushions professionally cleaned tomorrow. The cleaners know the situation and have a special enzyme they can to help. Hoping that takes care of things! Just feel so bad because the couch isn't my own.
