help with peepee pads
as you know, my sweet dog has addisons. we took him off his prednisone (per vet) 2 weeks ago thinking all was good and it wasn't. he wasn't eating, lethargic and still continued to drink and pee. so, back on the pred. not a problem. he's bounced back great.
we keep him confined to the kitchen now when we leave in case he has an accident. is there a way to train him to use the pee pee pad if he has to go. i don't want that to be the norm only when we leave him behind and he has an accident. he's never seen a pee pee pad until august. he's 5 years old.
when we first brought him home after his surgery last august, he had a lot of accidents until we figured out the right dose of med. i put pee pee pads out when we left but he went elsewhere in the kitchen, never on the pad. he probably doesn't even know what it's for! again, i don't want the pee pee pad to become his primary form of elimination but i want to put them out when i leave in case he has an accident. am i asking for the impossible?
