Loss of toilet-training is commonly found in older dogs. It could be due to the increased in urine produced hence resulted in the dog being unable to ‘control’ for normal periods of time. Increased urine production may be due to increased thirst which may be due to liver or kidney disease.

It could also be due to primary problem with the urinary bladder muscles and control.

Conditions for primary urinary tract include infections, bladder stones, cancer or urinary muscle and sphincter incompetence. Different diseases can be developed among male and female dogs.

When your older dog show signs of urinary pattern and behaviour, it is crucial to visit your veterinary with a fresh urine sample.

It is best to obtain medical attention early for many of these ‘old age’ diseases.
