slight incontinence

Does anyone identify with this: my 15 year old springer spaniel is not incontinent per se however this happened this morning & it's not the first time - as usual first thing I took him outside to do a wee, then he came in & I started to get his breakfast ready, he got so excited by the prospect of food that he did a poo on the floor.

Just think how lucky you are that he wasn't in your bed at the time

I used to have a L÷wchen dog who gradually developed dementia. He never wet in the house, but in the last year of his life, (he was17), he would lose pieces of poo as he was walking. He didn't seem to be aware that it was happening. Fortunately he had solid motions, so his offerings were easily picked up.

It's been quite some time since he was able to jump up on to my bed, he's got arthritis in his hips.

Oh yes it makes all the difference when stools are hard rather than soft!

The other night a first happened - he was lying asleep on the floor (he's got 2 beds but won't sleep in either of them) & he did a poo without even noticing/realising.

Unfortunately, like us, as they get older they get weaker. The best we can do is ignore it and accept that this is now just a part of life x
