Re: Dog wants to go out at night time, yet is healthy according to vet

What happens if everyone ignores Lizzie asking to go out at night? Does she ever settle, or have there been accidents?

Has anything changed in the garden - any new animals you have seen taking up residence, any new roaming cats, any new noises?

---

A small number of spayed females develop incontinence later in life. Many who do can be managed with meds.

Now, I know you say that Lizzie is not incontinent - and thank goodness for that!

However, the urge to urinate more frequently, even while still being able to exercise bladder control, can be a sign of a developing condition.

That she urinates - sometimes twice - right away on being let out might (and only might) speak to a developing condition. Of any of the causes.


OR

It might simply be age related, either the beginning of CCD or simply 'senior moments', where our oldies start doing odd stuff but the oddity stops short of CCD.

OR

It could even be a combination of all of the above.


Were it me, I'd probably:

Treat it as if there were some sort of age related cognition thingy going on, and work on relaxation and stress reduction at night.

If the behavior persists, see the vet again. Both to review any other possible medical explanations for increased asking to go out, and to talk about CCD.



And obviously, if any other medical related symptoms crop up, see the vet sooner rather than later.


Oldies - gotta luv 'em.

We had a cat that started displaying strange behaviour like this, crying wanting to wee during the night etc., also running up and down stairs at breakneck speed. We found out she had thyroid problems.

I know next to nothing about dogs, but I want to say eng_ch: I'm so sorry to hear about your dog

and to EE: I hope you get some answers soon, so that your dog is not so stressed and so you can get some sleep.

Thanks for asking roegner

Madame is well! Doing what she loves best, snoozing on the sofa using her own blanket

Funny thing, the night after I vented here, she DIDN'T wake us and it has abatted, so I excpect within a couple of days the whole thing will be over again. But we'll go and see the vet as already organised next week.

I'll keep you posted!

Thank you. He's left a huge hole. Thankfully we have the new Ship's Kitten to keep us amused but we were all in bits (including the kitten, who by that point had spent half his life with the Ship's Dog)

Oh no, I misinterpreted your post.

BIG BIG consoling hug from one dog's Mum to you!! I hope the memory of him will bring you solace AND a smile onto your face, when you will talk about his adventures and the things he got up to!

Much love

EE x

Re: Dog wants to go out at night time, yet is healthy according to vet

Thank you. We already do have the "do you remember when Heros used to..." conversations, still tinged with sadness but bring a smile anyway. There are still pics of him on the slideshow we'll be running at the Expat Expo tomorrow so we'll see him in his element again then

Re: Dog wants to go out at night time, yet is healthy according to vet

Ok here goes....

Vet doesn't think it is CCD (yet), more like us who get dittery and forgetful the older we get because the symptoms Lizzie shows are too few over the span of time she shows them (seeing and barking at ghosts, gazing into the far distance, her nighttime capers...)

Lizzie now gets CHILLAX again (CBD hemp product for dogs) .

I gave that to her already on occasions last summer, when we knew about stuff that causes her anxiety and it worked a treat. But I only gave it to her in a short span of time, now we try thatfor longer and see how and if it works.

As an old Hippie , and still one at heart, obviously I am absolutely fine with this solution and hope it works
