Old Dog Peeing Everywhere

Our 25 lb. dog is 13 years old and is peeing on our beds, rugs, furniture, and you name it. He seems to forget to let us know he wants to go out. When he does actually come and want us to take him out he will let us know and then run and hide. After 6 or more tries to put him on the leash, he'll go out to do his business. We love him and can't figure out what's going on. He doesn't seem to be in any pain or distress.


We take him to the vet regularly for his check-ups. He takes one Prilosec every day because prior to taking the Prilosec he ate loads of grass and threw up a lot. He is not dripping urine so diapers aren't needed. Any recommendations would be appreciated. He eats Blue Buffalo canned food and a few Milk Bones here and there. His name is "Buddy".

I would contact the vet. It may be an effect of the medication, an infection or just aging that is causing this.

Hi! It might be age related incontinence. There's a medication called Proin that might help.


I'd suggest calling your vet and asking, it's not terribly expensive and did wonders for our dog.

Prayers for your Buddy!! This is a definite vet question as this could be signs of an infection or other issue that is easily treatable.

If he gets a clean bill of health, you may want to consider the diapers. We used them for 2 years for our Carmel and she was fine with them and it saved our floors and our sanity. Her issue was she was 15 and just started to forget she had to go out.

We tried the doggy diapers and found them to be an expensive waste of money as they leaked, didn't stay on, and you couldn't check to see if they were used without ruining the closure.


We tried human (Walmart brand were the least expensive) size 1 (she weighed 11 pounds) and this was perfect. We cut a diamond shape out for her tail and off she went. We kept her on a regular schedule of going out....so the diapers were primarily for the times (later in the evening), when she would "forget" and pee in the house.

The human diapers didn't leak, stayed on, had reusable Velcro so we could check for pee if needed and re-close.

We credit them to helping her live to a ripe old age of 17 1/2!

Let us know what the vet says! Healing prayers are on the way!

I'm deeply grateful for your answer and your prayers for Buddy. Last night my heart broke and I put my hand over my face and cried. Buddy has been my dearest friend and companion for almost his entire life. Aging is the most painful process to watch an innocent, loving, kind, forgiving, beautiful dog like Buddy to go through.


We have laughed, played, walked, ran, sat and cuddled, talked, shared secrets and known joys my heart will cherish for eternity. When my friends say "God bless you." My heart says -- He did when He gave us Buddy.

The prayers continue! You are so right about G-d blessing you both by bringing you together! Keep loving him and take it one day at a time.

It is so hard when they age. But I believe we can learn the true meaning of grace by being by their side as their muzzles go gray. They take it all in stride and use the slowing down time to linger over good smells and savor sunspots. We can learn so much by their example.

Dogs touch our hearts so much! This was my girlie who wore the diapers. www.thriftyfun.com/Carmel-Ann-Mini-Dachshund.html


She is always in my heart! Take care of your fur baby and be easy on you!! Hugs to you both!

My senior dog who was potty trained would squat right in front of me.
I couldnt believe she was doing this. I took her to the vet and she had a bad urinary tract infection. She was trying to tell me. Take your dog to the vet right away.
