Meko the Miracle Dog

When Sammy, our first Pomeranian, was getting older, she would sometimes  get confused and pee wherever she happened to be standing. That was often on ourfrench bulldog notecard by dj geribo at help shelter pets detail image living room carpet. After she passed away, the carpet was beyond even a professional cleaning so we decided to have it removed and replaced with bamboo laminate.

We knew her inability to control her bladder was because of her age. If your dog or cat is urinating in inappropriate places and too often, it could be a sign of a medical condition. For example, urinary tract infections could be one cause of frequent urinating. Diabetes and liver disease can cause more frequent drinking and urinating.

You should rule out medical problems first before treating your dog or cat for behavioral problems. Both dogs and cats urinate to mark their territory, in particular unneutered males. Cats may urinate outside their box if the litter or the location and size of the box are not to their liking. Or they may not use the box if it needs to be cleaned.

Dogs that have not been properly trained will urinate in the home. But even properly trained dogs will urinate in the home if left alone too long with no place to urinate.  Also, dogs who are stressed due to loud noises (like fireworks) may urinate. Be sure to check with your vet before administering any type of sedative and check for any medical problem that might be the cause of inappropriate urinating.
