You can fix it - dry, treat, and seal. - Posted by Rolfe

First thing I’d do is check the floor drain for back-up. If there is a drain, be sure it is clear. Second, stop water from flowing in, if only temporarily. Third, dehumidify. Place a strong dehumidifier down there, and let it dehumidify for several days.
Once you’re dried out, you’ll want to remove any rotten stinky lousy things, and replace if necessary. Do NOT remove any concrete.
Several products are available for oder removal, depending on the type and source of the oder. For general basement mildew, Kilz is an ok product for general use, as is Bins. Apply to the walls, perhaps the ceiling (you may want to mask with tape wires and copper). Last, paint the floor with a quality basement floor paint - follow the directions on the can closely.
If the is oder mildew, that should take care of it. Strong, strong pet oder will not be snuffed out by Kilz.
Good Luck! Rolfe
