    So, I was very unlucky traveling a couple of days ago.

    I was flying home a couple of days ago with my dog along side of me. On the second flight I had my bag was a little wet. At first, I though my dog had drooled on it but then realized she had pissed all over it. I have searched on here for some leather guidance, but I don't know if this is even salvageable. :(

    Patina must remain intact prior to shipment.

    Sorry to hear/see that. Not sure where you're located, but if in or willing to send to NYC you should try: http://www.superiorleathernyc.com/

    They've done great cleaning work on some of my leather goods.

    Sorry to read about your misadventures LJubel328. That is a lovely patina though. On what plane do they allow pets to be seated with you? Please keep us updated.

    Unfortunate, but it was her first time flying. I can not blame her, it was nearly 10 hours since he had last gone to the bathroom. I have to say she was damn sneaky about it :satisfied:

    I will keep this updated and post pictures once I receive the bag after cleaning.

    Did you specify the breed of Canine?
    Can be very important.

    Coupled with quite the avatar.

    That said, I do a lot of cat rescue and can (sadly) share an animal urine clean up tip - enzymes. I don't know about dog pee, but cat pee has a high ammonia and other nastiness content. It'll smell forever and it's almost impossible to get rid of. Enzymes are the only, only, only thing that works.

    Enzymes are little microscopic critters that actually eat the urine (and most other bio stuff - puke, bile, feces, etc.). You can buy the off the shelf stuff at a pet store mostly pre-mixed in a spray but that stuff is hit or miss because, depending on shelf life and travel conditions, all the enzymes in it might be dead. If you can find powdered form that you can mix with water, you'll get a fresh batch of hungry little buggers that will eliminate (no pun intended) the remaining urine. The only catch is you have to saturate the material to the same extent is was originally since the enzymes have to find their way to what ever is left.

    Since the looks/finish has already been botched by moisture, you might as well give it a go. I highly recommend this before you start with any cleaning, leather care, etc. stuff because once you introduce that stuff it will kill (or block) any enzymes that you introduce later.

    I use odormute from here: http://www.gundogsupply.com/odormute-c-concentrate.html
    Or I googled this for dogs/puppies here: http://bedwettingstore.com/buyers-guide-stain-removers-dogs.html

    Good luck!

    Drench that thing in Saphir Renomat/Renovateur?

    Either that, or send it to Iroh, as gdot suggested. :D
