PostSubject: Peeing   Sat 25 Aug 2012, 9:18 am

Reuben has had a couple of accidents whilst he has been on the steroids. He is drinking a lot more and for the last 10 days our son has been away so Reubs has been in all day whilst we are at work.

I forgave him peeing on the carpet as I felt it was out of his control due to the meds but then was gobsmacked when this morning he walked to that area and stood peeing on the carpet right in front of me and there was no excuse as the back door was open.

I ran over to him to stop him but as he was mid pee there was no chance

I really need a new carpet but given what Rueben hs just done and that the cat is still here then it is gong to have to wait for now

My last boy did this + was diagnosed with diabetes. Those are classic signs. He needs to have his urine tested + a blood test. I hope it's not diabetes, there are other things to watch for, eg his back legs being a bit wobbly.

My old boy also had Cushings, which caused the diabetes, a classic sign of that is a pot bellied appearance.

Hugs to you both xxx

ETA he just won't be able to control when + where he goes xx

He is on steroids at the moment Tracey which are making him drink more, hence pee more. He is drinking loads when we are out on walks.

I am going to speak to the vets tomorrow as I thought he should have finished them by now but they had to supply me with more as I double dosed him by mistake for the first week and I think they have given me too many

I dont have a carpet cleaner Allie but I can get one from work as we hire them out so I think that may be the next best option for now and maybe wait until the New Year as we will have to contend with mucky paws etc now the weather is turning

Bless him, if it were me I'd still have his urine tested just to rule it out

Hope he's ok, they're such a worry aren't they xxx

Poor boy, he's probably complety confused! He probably went in exactly the same spot as he could smell it still, have you washed the carpet with a biological cleaner?

Yes used washing powder Tracey

He finishes his tablets on Wednesday so will see how he is then. I am a bit annoyed at our vets as I have enough tablets for another couple of weeks and I thought it was too many.
I had to order some extra ones as I double dosed him in the first few days and it looks like they gave me the ful prescription again rather than what I needed

I am going to let him finish his tablets and then give him a few days as he has been getting tired quickly when we are out walking and we stay near the lake (some of this is my paranoia from when he collapsed) if this carries on or the peeing continues we will be going to the vets.

May pay to get a full MOT done
