Dog incontinence

Hello, I have a 13.5 year old mixed breed who has been diagnosed with hypercalcemia (inoperable benign tumor on neck gland). His urination has gotten more frequent and his overall bladder control declined. In the last week he also started defecating at night in the house. Never done that before. I am about to move into a new townhome I bought and I so worried about both him and having to deal with soiled carpet daily. I recently got him bladder wrap diapers with Velcro but he ends up pulling them off somehow.

Not sure what to do, but thought I would reach out for suggestions. Thanks!

Im not sure what size your dog is- but I put toddler pullups on mine & sewed elastic on but it was for her heat, she actually doesnt go wees or poop in them & tells me with a pleading look that she wants it off for wees. If I was changing it each day then I guess I would use thinner elastic & poke some holes thru the top & tie the elastic on. It keeps them up like braces. The other thing I made was a polar fleece nappy & it attaches to a vest for winter. what about those washable ones with domes for babies they have liners inside to soak up the wees. That would only work if your dogs not big. The pull ups have nice soft stretchy elastic sides which she likes. The ones with velcro or do up sides irritates th !*!*! out of my dog & she pulls them undone with her teeth aswell.

Oh, I feel for you. I'm facing a delimma where my senior pooch is wetting our bed at night (even after being taken out BEFORE bed) and am curious to see solutions offered on this.
Have you found any relief with the diapers?
