Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.
This is most likely due to a urine infection. Urine infections split the urea int the urine to ammonia and water. This leads to the fishy smell. You need to see your doctor for a urine culture and you will likely need to be started on antibiotics. Hope this helps.
