Hi everyone,

my 10 year old collie cross has recently been having accidents at night in her crate she shares with her brother.

we took her to the vets about 2 months ago due to a bout of diarrhoea that lasted ages,
she seems fine now but every so often she poos in the night in the crate and they both get covered !!!

im trying to book another app at the vets now, but they are booked up.
do you think its down to old age, she seems to be the one we always have to take to the vets.

they both eat dr johns dry food , one bowl in morning and one at 9pm

thanks

It might be a case of her age if it's only intermittent.
May be trying to feed her early evening around 5pm and taking her for a little stroll to empty her bowels before bedtime.

Thankyou,
thats what i thought.
As i said she goes from solid to runny back to solid again, and i noticed from last nights episode that some out the mess was undigested dog food.

She has dried dr johns food twice a day, she used to get treats but we had to stop them when this started. the vets gave us a syringe type medicine and rice and chicken tins to give her as they said it was colitis sp ??

but i cant see how she can be fine most of the time then this happens, i feel sorry for her brother too as he sleeps nest to her and also gets covered when she has a accident

How long has she been on this food?
It seems to be chicken based, so I would have thought that buying some white fish and cooking some rice is a better choice when her tum is upset.
She may not have cleared the initial problem, but it has been kept under control for short periods by the paste.
Was it Pro Kolin paste? If so you can buy that online without prescription.
You may have to change food if it continues

Any time :)
I think you should keep her on the fish and rice for at least a week to let her tum settle
