I've heard that peat moss, limestone from your local gardening centre or worms to till and help break down the soil, urine and poop is quite effective. I've never tried these methods myself(except for the worms) but according to members of RT it works quite well.
Personally I've had worms in our compost heap for years and all the poo, pee, food scraps and soiled hay get broken down and don't smell.

Get a spray bottle and put 1/4 apple cider vinegar in it, fill with water and spray the wet spots. It neutralizes the smell and no harm to the critters.
