Default Urinating in house but not incontinent

Does anyone have any suggestions for this. My terrier is 14 years old. She
pees in my apartment and then I take her outside and she has a stool. I
have her night time schedule down. I take her out almost every hour. Now
she has a new habit - I take her out at noon to pee and at 1:00pm she pees
on the carpet, I take her outside and she poops.

She is not incontinent so I can't put her on a prescription. All I can do
is clean up her messes and she has always been a good dog this way. She is
just aging.

How many out there has had this problem and any suggestions for cleaning
solutions.

Thanks so much.

Debbie

Yeah, the vet said and we have known this since the first of the year, that
she has cognitive disorder.


You could try her on Hill's b/d which has shown remarkable results in dogs not
having as many "accidents" in the house. Ask your vet for more info.

She squats. I think as dogs age, as humans, we just need to go more. I
take her out almost every hour in the evening.


It could also be related to cognitive changes - "forgetting"
their house training is a common symptom. I would talk to
your vet about treatment. The two most widely-used
approaches are Anipryl and/or to feed Science Diet B/D. I
used Anipryl with my aged Collie cross. Not every dog
responds to Anipryl but it made a huge difference for
Greta. I'd check for a UTI first, and then talk to the vet
about treating the cognitive problems, especially if there's
no infection.

She is on 10 mg of anipryl and we have discussed changing her diet. I
didn't know it was B/D. She is on I/D.

Thanks.

Our dogs had continence problems after back surgery (dachshunds).
After much experimentation, we found that club soda (containing sodium
bicarbonate) works WONDERS on dried urine on carpets: just pour it on,
wait a minute or so, then soak it up with a towel. For fresh stains,
first soak up the excess, then add the club soda and soak it up again.
