Housebreaking regression after neuter
As everyone knows, Oscar was neutered last Tuesday. Since he came home, he has been having a lot of accidents. We went back to basics and he is tethered to me when home, in a crate or an ex-pen when he isn't, or outside on a leash. Guess what? He doesn't care. He peed on the floor yesterday WHILE tethered to me less than an hour after peeing outside. He also ran into the house yesterday after pooping outside and my husband accidentally dropped the leash- well, he ran over to his bed and pooped in it. I know there are a ton of threads about all of this, and that people say he will get it again, but does it start slowly? Or does it one day click again? It has been over a week with ZERO success. We are extrememly diligent and take him out every hour during the day. He is 6.5 months old now and it still isn't helping. He has peed in 2 of 4 beds, on 3 different toys and my floors (including the new hardwood that was installed 2 weeks ago in the family room). The vet says there is nothing medically wrong and that it will come back to him but I don't see any progress. Any ideas?
