If you are lucky enough to be there at the time of discharge and you
have a wet dry Vac you can use warm water and the Vac to lift the Urine
from the carpet however this will not completely resolve the problem you
will also need a professional product that will kill off the bacteria
which has gone deep into the carpet.
If you do not have a wet dry vac the other method is to use colour fast

The professional products I use to kill off the bacteria and address
the staining, I have had great success with.
When the accident happens apply the water treatment as I have described
above and then call me.
