Older Dog Pooping and Peeing Inside

My 11 year old Rottie is pooing and peeing indoors all the time! Initially I thought it was because he was protesting about not being allowed upstairs anymore (he has severe arthritis in his front legs and is on Metacalm and glucosamine for this). I'm a bit strapped for cash and really don't want to take him to the vet (and am scared of what they may say/find). Any suggestions gratefully received.

Try calling your vet and asking for advice. Let them know your financial situation and see if they can give you something to try before bringing the dog in. Sometimes it is a simple fix.

If you don't have a regular vet, contact your local rescue organization and see if they know of a free or reduced care clinic.

Metacam is hard on the kidneys. Our boy is on it and needs yearly blood work to make sure he is stable. Most vets will work with you on costs like reduced fees or affordable payment plans or both.

There are so many possibilities here, old age, your prescription needs to be adjusted, you need to time his meals differently, he may have a urinary tract infection. You really need a Vet to help make your choices to make the right one.

You could take him to the ASPCA or Humane Society. He could have a urinary tract infection or it could be old age
