Small pet stains on floating floor

Q: I found your web site while searching out how to manually try and fix several pet stains my dog has made on my hardwood floors. I have floating hardwoods that I believe were put in on top of a tile floor. Unfortunately the dog has had a couple of accidents in his old age. There are three none bigger than the palm of your hand. I don’t want to have to replace the floor if not absolutely necessary (I’m not sure I could even find replacement boards since the floor was put in prior to my owning the house). Is there anything I can do cleaning wise to try and pull the stain out of the wood? I did read on your site one of you visitors tried hydrogen peroxide and was able to bleach the stain out of their wood but I’m not sure if that will work for a pre-finished floating floor systems. Do you have any suggestions?

A: While I hear suggestions, I have not tried most of them. In most cases replacement of the boards is the best and easiest way to deal with the stains. Who makes your floor?
