Urine makes my feet sticky

My beloved 12 year old mini dachshund has suddenly developed incontinence. I've got the medical issues covered but I'm having trouble with the clean-up.

All the area rugs are sent off for cleaning and storage so I'm down to bare floors. The wood is oak (new when put down) finished with a C+ quality poly treatment. It's been cleaned for the past few years with Orange Glow wood cleaner/polisher. When a puddle is created, I get on it right away by sopping it with clean toweling. At first, I finished it off with Swifter wet jetting (the blue solvent). That made the floor very sticky. It stayed sticky. I then switched to the wood cleaner (brown bottle) Swifter cleaner. Same thing happens. Is it the build up of the Orange Glow that makes it sticky? Or is it the Swifter stuff? Oddly enough, when I do the same thing on the tiled bathroom floor or the finished colored concrete in the rec room, the same thing happens. I have never used the Orange Glow either places. Is the urine actually breaking through the base finishes? Thanks for all your advice.
