Guest Bex68 Posted February 6, 2016 Share Posted February 6, 2016 Hello everyone, We've had Roxy the rescue grey for 20 months, she's 3. We've had no problems with her (apart from the usual grey traits) and she even settled with a Staffie house guest, who is her best friend. The Staffie and his owner moved across the road about 3 months ago, but we still have him during the day while his owner is at work. About a month ago Roxy started soiling downstairs, both wee and poo. It got to the stage where we were putting newspapers down on the laminate flooring cause it's starting to separate. Every time the area is scrubbed with deodoriser. Sometimes she would go on the paper but most of the time it was dry. I put training pads down but she didn't soil on those either, so I got complacent and didn't put anything down. My rug has been washed every morning since Monday this week So I'm getting a bit frustrated now. Rox goes out for a walk before we go to bed, usually about 10-10.30pm and I make sure she empties her bladder and bowels and her food and water is taken up around 8pm. She's also taken to having the bin over during the night too, so we've had to start taping it up again, we haven't had to do that for about 8 months. At first we thought Rox was missing her buddy overnight but I don't understand why the soiling didn't start as soon as he left. I'm sure many replies will be get her to the vets with a urine sample but she is showing no signs of being ill. She still can't get enough to eat, drinking normally, having her gallops daily as well as regular walks. Apart from the vets I think weve done everything we can do but I need to sort this out soon. Putting her in a crate is not an option, I couldn't do it to her and we don't have the room. Taking my gorgeous girl back to the shelter is not an option, she wasn't our first choice but once we met her we were hooked and now wouldn't be without her. Any advice would be greatly received, we've had dogs in the past but not a greyhound who, I'm finding out, is a breed way above all the others 😊 Becky Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
