There are so many possible causes for this that it would be impossible to give advice. You really need a Vet to exclude fixable problems before deciding on what you need to do. 10 years old is not all that old for a small dog. Your chances of having a treatable medical condition here are high. Anyway, what Deeli said. Good luck.

It's possible your dog has a UTI, bladder infection, etc. Something an antibodic could clear. Have your vet check your baby out. That way, if it's not one of the above, he can look for other possibilities.

This is simply part of "old age" that can happen to any of us. Irrespective of age please consult with your Veterinarian this could be a uninary tract infection or any number of things. They will precribe the correct treatment.

Good luck.

This could be a hormone imbalance too. When my female german shepherd cross was 12 months old, she started to pee in her sleep. It was after she had been sterilised and the vet said it was due to a hormone imbalance. The vet was a wholistic practice and they did accupuncture on her to fix it.

They told me that if she was an older dog they just would have given her hormone replacement, but preferred to do accupuncture on a younger dog.

Hello, Please take your fur-baby to his veterinarian for an exam. He could possibly have a urinary track infection. Your Vet will do a urinalysis to determine the appropriate method of treatment.
