Guest firegypsy Posted September 27, 2016 Share Posted September 27, 2016 My 9 year old grey, who has always been very vocal about needing to go out, has suddenly started relieving herself in the house. She's been with us for 5 years, and this behavior started on Thursday. Previously, if she had to go out, she's turn in circles while barking, and that was her ask. She has never once had an accident in the house. Now, there are no signs whatsoever, and she's having multiple accidents overnight, as well as during the day. Even if we're in the room, she'll walk across the room to go behind a chair. We're also seeing a pretty dramatic increase in thirst since Thursday. This had a rapid onset with a concrete start, and our first thought was diabetes or a UTI. We took her to the vet, and while the kidney results haven't come back completely, everything else looks perfectly fine. Has anyone else run into this? I can't believe it's straight up incontinence since one day she was fine, and the next there were two overnight accidents, and two the next morning before 10 am, despite her being let out every two hours minimum. We've been crating her more since this started, and that seemed to be doing the trick until yesterday, when she had an accident in there (though not of the urinary persuasion.) We've had no changes in the household, no changes in diet, and nothing else has happened that would seem to point to this being behavioral (which I'd have a hard time believing anyway.) I'd welcome any thoughts while we await the full kidney results! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
