I am the owner of a beautiful ex-racing greyhound who is 8 next month.
She has a lovely, loving calm temperament but is very sensitive to bangs, loud noises or any sort of surprise noise.
Since my boyfriend and I have had her we have always had to leave the back door open if out for any time so she can wee and sometimes during the night she will get up and want to go out.
However, recently - within the last 2-3 months I have found wet patches in her beds. When we are in the house with her she normally always gets up and goes to the door to tell us she needs to go out but recently, that is, within the last 2-3 months I have sometimes found wet patches in her beds. She still tells us when she wants to go out to wee most of the time but then sometimes it is almost as if she can't be bothered so just does it where she is! However, there is no strong urine smell to the wetness and at first I wasn't even sure whether it was urine but can't think what else it may be.
She is a perfectly healthy dog in every other way - loves her walks, runs around the house playing her games, loves her food. In the past she has had teeth out and has had the pre-op test for any kidney problems and has been fine.
I am not sure whether this has just been triggered off by something or if there is something wrong. We have a vet appointment for boosters next week so I am going to speak to them but just wondered if anyone could throw some light on this beforehand and also, where may be the best place to get some waterproof covers for her bedding if we need it in the future.
Thanks for any help.
