Circular dead patches in your lawn can be caused by your female dog urinating in the middle of the lawn.  The problem can be due to a dietary imbalance.  If dogs are fed a high proportion of dried food, their urine is so concentrated that the lawn is killed off when they squat.  This doesn’t happen with male dogs, as they keep to the trees around the edges.


The following diet has been found to cure this problem in most bitches:

  • 40% meat
  • 40% beans and pumpkin or carrots
  • 20% rice


Alternatively dogs can be fed canned food or fresh meat.
