removing vinyl tile and linoleum

My kitchen floor is HUGE. There are vinyl tiles laid over linoleum and the floor reeks from dog urine. I've tried so many cleaners and it smells great for awhile then stinks again. Am afraid I may have to replace floor UNLESS ANYONE HAS OTHER GOOD ADVICE TO AVOID DOING SO CAUSE IT'LL COST TOO MUCH MONEY......However, if I DO need to replace floor, how on earth can I easily take off tiles and linoleum??
Thank you!

What is the substrate under the sheet vinyl flooring?

Concrete or wood of some kind?

Over plywood, there is usually a thin inch plywood underlyment over the plywood subfloor. Take the underlayment vinyl and tiles up in one tear out. Cut through the underlayment in strips about a foot wide. Get under the underlayment and pry it up.
