Unhappy Elimination problem


Casper is now 11 years old. He has started to pee and not realize he is doing it. He is 1 of 3 dogs in the house. We have also been finding poop around the house. No one has seen Casper do it, but because of the size of the waste, it has been deemed that it was him. Isn't 11 years old a little young for elimination problems to start showing up due to age? What else could be the problem? Any ideas?

No ideas but sorry to hear your problem. Hope you are able to figure it out (via a visit to the vet?) soon.

Definitely go to the vet to rule out a UTI and discuss other possible causes of this new behavior.

A trip to the vet is in order for sure. When Apollo started having accidents I wrote it off to old age but he had bladder stones.

I suspect it could be a urinary tract infection (UTI). My corgi suffered from those and the first indication was pee accidents in the house. She didn't have poop accidents though so that seems somewhat unusual. The vet can take a urine sample and determine if it is a UTI. Let us know.
