Never tried the enzimatic one so canīt comment on it, but ammonia and urea in any mammal pee (cat/dog/rodent/human/horse) can be decomposed (so neutralized) with lye.
Yes, this will emit noxious gases.
Problem is a lot of it will also attack presswood/MDF/chipboard so dilute it, from 1:1 to 1:5 in water and spray a little on suspect area, only enough to wet iit, then let it work a couple hours.
Repeat as needed, so you know you applied minimum necessary and no more.
If possible, let the wet area dry in direct sunlight, UV will also help kill odor.
Slow but best results,
After you got rid of 99% smell, mask residual with citric oil as suggested.

Sorry but white vinegar and baking soda will neutralize each other and become inert.

If you hate chlorine smell, peroxide is second best, but nascent oxygen is less aggressive than liberated chlorine.

Donīt think you need to go to such extremes, but if annoyed by residual chlorine smell, (which will evaporate on its own on a couple days) spray slightly afterwards with a weak sodium sulfite solution.

An even safer way is to run an ozonator (ozone generating machine) near the object. It does not need to touch the object. The fumes can be dangersous if you get too much of them in your lungs. You and every other being should be somewhere else, and this assumes you're in a house. If you're in an apartment, forget it.

But if you leave an ozonator on for a while, it will kill just about any smell on earth. I've used this several times for my house and it's as close to magic as I've ever seen.

Wow, I had no idea ozone was dangerous. My sharper image ionic breeze air cleaner produced ozone, apparently that was a major point in its recall and the downfall of the company.

I always liked the smell of ozone - I associate it with the Lionel trains from my youth. To me it smells clean, antiseptic. Live and learn.

Lighter fluid, don't use a match with it. The aromatics in the fuel kill the smell and evaporate completely. Xylene is even better, but it's quite toxic.
