Will professional carpet cleaning eliminate pet urine smell?

I just bought a home that seems to have a faint pet urine smell. I’ve heard some claim that professional carpet cleaning services can get rid of the smell, but others have said the only way to eliminate the smell is to replace all of the carpet and padding. Other than the smell, the carpet is in perfectly good condition. Will professional carpet cleaning do the trick?

same happened to us... real estate agent told us BEFORE we made an offer..... oh the smell? multiple cats,, not to worry just shampoo the carpet

So we did ! All the dried up cat urine activated by water smelled 10 x worst then before. The professional carpet cleaning service guy we called to our rescue said yeaaaaa we can clean it for extra charge... sprayed some stuff in the corners,,, but it didnt work at all... We ended up replacing the old carpet.
