Hi darling,

There is this stuff my fiance uses for when we had the puppy and he would poop on the carpet, I also used it when he pooped on my leather couch, it's called Odoban. It didn't say if it was safe to use on a couch, but I used it and then wiped it, and then used a leather lotion behind it. The stuff is amazing...you can use it to get rid of any smell....and you can get it at Walmart in a spray bottle or a gallon container. I suggest buying a spray bottle and getting the gallon, cause you're going to love this stuff. It deoderizes, disinfects and cleans.

I hope this helps, if you have any further questions, feel free to ask, it costs nothing to click reply. If this has helped, please remember to click the green accept button.

Warmly,

Chase

There are proteins in the urine and feces that have bacteria which leather absorbs, you need something that will absorb into the leather, neutralize those proteins and not damage the leather. I will not go into detail how I know this will not only work on the couch to clean, condition and deodorize it, but It has been used to remove far worse smells in enclosed areas on leather that does absorb odors and hold them due to bacteria.

Gold Class Rich Leather Aloe Cleaner http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?product=Gold-Class-Rich-Leather-Aloe-Cleaner&sku=G-110 and follow it up with Gold Class Rich Leather Aloe Conditioner http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?product=Gold-Class-Rich-Leather-Aloe-Conditioner&sku=G-111

You might also find a car detailing shop that will sell you some of this locally, it is one of the better products that is used by them remove pet orders on furniture and other smells from body fluids on leather car seats

If any fluids absorb so far in that it has got into the fiber stuffing of the sofa, you may have to have the sofa opened and those fibers replaced or cleaned also. Before I did that, I would also try a spotter enzyme like Liquid Alive Enzyme Digestant to try on the surface area where the accident happened and hope that it sinks in as far and neutralizes the proteins and bacteria there

  • My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on! Debbie USA
  • I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there. Alice H. Jacksonville, Fl.
  • Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help. Mary C. Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
