We have a small dog, given to us by our son, when she was over

Customer Question

We have a small dog, given to us by our son, when she was over 3 years old. We had two whippets and a Tibetan Terrier, who were all elderly but they have each been put down, leaving this dog on her own. Before the last whippet was put down she began wetting in the bathroom. We thought this was just laziness at night but it has now happened during the day when she would have to go upstairs in order to do this.
Please can you give us some guidelines. Cheers, ***** *****

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
