    Is it normal for a puppies urine to kill grass so easily. My friend within 8 months of puppy ownership has virtually no grass left, even though the majority of his toilet is done while on walks.

    He also has pretty constant red eyes. He's going to the vets tomorrow, but would welcome your opinions.

    Glad to hear avets appointment has been made regarding the eyes.

    Our two have wrecked our grass in parts and tyler lifts his leg up everything so you have to watch him,otherwise I'd have no plants left.

    welcome to the joys of owning a dog,
    yes you do get killed off grass,
    i have been told in the past if you give them tomato ketch up its ment to stop the urine killing the grass off.
    dont know if its true or not, but no harm trying it.

    Supposedly true about the tomato either ketchup of juice will do it breaks down the acid which is what burns the grass.

    Budgie went to the vet, and has been given anti-biotics. My friend is to watch his condition and re-visit if it doesn't clear up in a week, as he had a high temperature of 104 instead of 99, think I have got that right. Again thanks for the love, support and advice.
