Is Your Dog’s Urine Burning the Lawn? Yellow spots on the lawn are normally caused because your dog's digestive system is too alkaline, therefore the acidity in the urine causes the lawn spots. A dose of one teaspoon to one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (depending on the size of the dog) per day will correct the pH imbalance and should solve the problem. The apple cider vinegar can be added to the dog's water or put directly on his food. The natural type from a health food store, not the pasteurized version from the supermarket. Two tablespoons of tomato juice on the dog's food twice a day will have the same effect.

Laddie... if you have a female dog, it is best to NOT get rid of the acid, but if you have a male that kills the grass it is ok to alter the acid.
A female dog's urine kills the grass, because it has a high acidity... that acid is their natural defense from yeast infections!! smile
