need some advice Vote for this post

Hi guys, as most of you know Robin is 15, she has been peeing  in house a lot in the last couple of days, today it was 8 times, Even though she goes outside to pee she is still doing it in the house.


do you guys have any suggestions, she has kidney problems and is on Hills KD dog food.

I am at me wits end, what to do. I tried putting a diaper on her, that didn't go so well.


thanks

Sandi,Ellie used to do this as she aged,my sweetheart had blood cancer and went blind also but our doors are always open and even though she used to widdie outside she still did them inside,I could never tell her off as I also think her bladder had weakened a bit as well but I used to get those carpet pieces from  the showroom books and scatter around the main carpet and floors and also just newspaper and when she did a widdie I just throw them away or if not too bad clean and put back down.I know it can be frustrating but I just remember thinking ...I could be like this one day and would want someone who understood and said..There There never mind its OK!..sadly we lost Dear Ellie at 13..I always thought as she was so fit she would have lived her life here a lot longer..we just never know..give Robin a wee hug from us and let us know how you are both doing with the situation..Hugs and kisses Annie Andrew and Nimby with her wings xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Google Joybies Piddle Pants I used them for a rescue I had and later for my boys when they got older.

I put adult pads inside and they worked well.

Good luck love Riley and Allen

Hi Sandi - I did the same thing as Allen when my dearly departed Molly started having this problem. I found a velcro over-wrap and attached pads to the inside of it.

The first day or so they don't like it but they soon get used to it.

Like Annie said, I know it's frustrating but God-willing we will all be there some day. At her age she probably just can't control herself as well as she used to. I know Molly used to bolt up sometimes when she leaked and then would sniff the ground like, "how the heck did that happen?"

There is also a med you can try, called Proin. It helped Molly a lot but didn't totally cure the problem. You may want to ask your vet about that too.

Good luck!!

Hi :)
Our baby is 13 and has been leaking for a few years.  This summer it as been worse.  She doesn't squat and pee, but leaks when she stands up if she really has to go.  She is on Bladder Support (like a little treat) and Leaks No More - got them both on Amazon.  She still has a little problem, but if I can get her outside enough she is fine.  We do limit water before bedtime - she sleeps with us so we also have a waterproof blanket on the bed and other blankets for when she is on the couch and her beds so we can wash those if needed.  She has bad arthritis and I know that is part of it - her hips and knees hurt so when she gets up she strains...and then leaks.  We did get some diapers but she hates them so they will be a last resort.  Good luck.
Katy ^~^ and Jen

Bless your heart, a lot of us have dealt with this as our pups got older. Just like Annie's Ellie, Kelsie had a blood cancer and went blind. Each day brought some new challenge but we did all we could to make her comfortable. In one respect, we were lucky that she chose the kitchen as her domain and didn't stray far from there except in the evenings when she'd come into the living room to be close to us as we watched TV. We spread newspapers on the floor and used waterproof bed pads in her bed. I know there are bladder control meds as other TC members have mentioned that might help. Has your vet recommended any of them? We will keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers and hope you find some help to Robin's problem. 
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

Sandi we send you and Robin hugs.So many of us can relate and understand what you are going through. Our Maddie went through issues with her bladder at an early age and our Vet had her on Proin25 half tab a day. It dramatically helped.As she got to her senior years the tabs stopped working and that can happen.She would pee a big paddle in her sleep awaking as I was cleaning it up,little dribble trails if I didn't have a diaper on her, she could be resting at looking out the window and just let out a paddle,.The look she would give each time she had an accident just broke my heart. I knew she couldn't help it. I'd let her know it is all ok. 
Maddie didn't like the diapers ( giving me that indignant look of shame) but it took many times her wearing it before she left them alone and knew it was going to be on her. 

Hugs Sandra & Grady

Thanks guys for all of your advice.  I am going to call the vet in the morning and see is I can get some meds for her.  I will try to diaper ting again.

I have been taking her out almost every hour  to pee and it seems to help.

I have put pee pads on the kitchen floor, but she will not use  them, I think I will cover the whole floor and see if that works.

thanks again.

With Winter I also have had troubles.
Most of the time she used to go in the front bedroom upstairs to poop but lately it is the kitchen . I know she had 4 times pups. Yesterday she was throwing up and pooping /peeing too. She also would not eat and lately does not want to eat. I entice her to eat a little. Yesterday was a bad day because Levi threw up his food too he eats to fast and does not chew his food. I take one day at a time and do not get mad at them. Levi has never done that in the house before !
Most of the time they go outside so they can do their business. Both are napping a lot and before 10:00 PM they go outside . So far they have never done it in my bed. on my bed I have a cover just in case!
Love,Yoka,Levi,Winter and Angel Moshe.
