Urine can both “etch” and “stain” marble, limestone, and travertine tile. The acids will etch the marble and the yellow color will cause a stain. Etching occurs when an acidic food, drink or substance (like urine) contacts the marble. Sealers work by delaying absorption not by forming a film over the stone.

A stain takes longer to develop as the liquid needs time to absorb.
I would recommend using one of the more natural brands that employ enzymes or micro-organisms.
Make a paste with baking soda and water and apply the paste to the smelly areas.
Vomit stains are similar to urine stains in marble whether from pets or people.
Etching occurs instantly upon contact of the urine with the marble and causes physical damage to the stone.
You just need to learn how to properly maintain travertine and how to deal with issues like etching, which is the dull spot you are seeing from your dog’s acidic urine.
A marble stain occurs when a liquid or substance is absorbed into the marble and causes a spot that is darker than the marble (and/or it has a color too).
But it could still stain if the liquid is left on the floor long enough (even if sealed).
Etching happens instantly, thus you definitely have an etch mark.
But if the spot is at all darker or yellow in color, then you have both a stain and etch mark.
Again, remove the stain first, and then deal with any remaining odor, then tackle the etch mark.
There are many odor removers out there for urine and other substances.
The issue for removing urine odor from a marble stain is whether the product is too acidic or alkaline, which may damage (etch) the marble surface.
Cover it with plastic wrap and seal around the edges with masking tape.
So it is possible to have both etching and staining in the same spot.
Then , eliminate the odor as this can create more etching depending on the solution you use.

You can help prevent staining by applying a stone sealer, however, the only way to prevent etching from cat or dog urine is to keep your pets from peeing on the marble tile.
Sealers will not prevent etching, scratching or any type of physical damage.
Such coatings can change the look of you stone often making it look plastic, they wear down easily, create additional problems when maintenance is needed and do not not allow the stone to breath which is very bad for the stone especially on a floor.
