bladder infection-pee pee pads

well, django has a little bladder infection. i guess one of the side affects of addisons, prednison and precortin is, bladder infection! poor guy was having accident non stop for a couple of days when left behind for a few hours.

anyways, he is on antibiotics and doing better each day. on occassion we will have an accident in the house if i don't get home on time and it's a prednison day. is there a way to train on pee pee pads and still keep him going outside? i would only put them down when it's a prednisone day, he's confined to the kitchen to it's never an issue to clean up but it would be nice if he would go the pads instead the floor. is this possible or will it be too confusing? he's 6 (will be on 1/6) and has never been trained on pee pee pads, always outside.

Tori uses pads and still goes outside, no confusion. However, she's been doing this from the very beginning. Don't know about Django, since he's so much older. But, I definitely think it's worth a try. These guys are smart, so don't underestimate him!

Poor guy, hope he gets over this quickly!

sounds odd, but rub his pee-pee on the pad to kind of get-him-going to use it.
this way it has some urine smell on it and will be drawn to it for peeing.
that is the only advice I have.

I don't have any advice on getting him started as an older dog, other than going back to an ex-pen arrangement until he figures it out. But I can tell you that Kodi has had NO trouble at all adapting to going potty either indoors or out. He'd prefer out, if we take him, but if we are not home, or if the weather is too bad to go out, he happily uses his litter box in the corner of the kitchen. (or if we're not home, the one in his ex-pen)

hmm, i think i will talk to the breeder, and get her take on training on pee pee pads. it's 14 degrees today, i'm sure if he had his choice he'd rather stay inside! question, not to sound gross but i don't want him pooping inside. i know his scheudle and he always goes outside, never had an accident inside. can you train just to pee on pad?

I think it will be better to use an incontinence pads for dog rather than giving her training to go to the pad for toilet to protect your floor.
