Does Ketchup Prevent Dog Urine Burnout Of Lawns?

Urine is slightly acidic, but so is tomato ketchup, so it does not neutralise the urine as some people believe. Instead, the salt content of tomato ketchup, juice or sauce makes dogs drink more, diluting the nitrogen in their urine. Be aware that increased salt intake can cause problems with existing kidney or heart conditions

I regularly see people messing with the diets of their dogs. The latest is someone who is feeding their dog all fresh vegetables... which will kill their dog over time. If you don't know anything about dog nutrition, you have no business making up your own diet for your dog. Table scraps are one thing, a specialized diet based upon your delusions of health are another.
