New Pup- vs- Old girl

Post by nvalleyvee »

I have been cage training the new pup....she is 5 months now. I allowed the new pup to sleep outside the cage last night. I think she pissed on the floor. I think the older Kayla over-peed her.................dang there was a 3 square foot area of pee on the floor. I guess I need to keep the pup in her cage from now on.

The Kayla is old and we did an estrogen shot 2 months ago because she let go her bladder in her sleep. I think I need to take the Kayla to the vet for some overnights so they can test her pee. I am pretty upset my Kayla has gotten to a point that she is breaking down. I am thinking of putting her down in the next year. I want to take her to the vet and have her stay for 3-4 days so can figure this out................What if NOTHING is wrong and shes just pissed at the new pup.

It's not uncommon for an old dog to have a sleeping accident. "Them's" the breaks sometimes. While it might be a consideration, I would seriously be surprised if Kayla peed in her sleep because she was mad at the puppy.



Shoot, *I've* had a few accidents in my lifetime too if I have slept too hard or drank too much liquid or been on certain medications. It can happen to anyone.



BUT...I think you are on the right track to take her to the vet and have her be seen.
