Can strong dog urine and feces odor cause health problems

Customer Question

Can strong dog urine and feces odor cause health problems?

Hello there,

Are you referring to the odor being dangerous to people or the dog?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
To people. I have young children and the odor is coming into my home. It is very strong and foul.
Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 7 years ago.
There is no disease that can be transferred along with the odor. Strong urine smell has high levels of ammonia, which can irritate the eyes in a closed area. If the neighbors clean the area with dilute bleach, it should eliminate the odor.
