Actually it’s become my dilemma. Last week days ago Trixie came down with a skin irritation. I took her to the vet and he prescribed some allergy pills that would relieve her itch. He said they had steroids in them that would cause her to pee more often. He wasn’t kidding. She’s gone from being a very good house dog to having several accidents a day. I’m not even sure if they’re accidents any more or just habit. She can last fine from 9 pm until 7 am without a problem, but once she’s up she’s going often… and anywhere. I’ve been taking her out every couple of hours where before she’d go 5 or 6 hours without a problem.
I stopped the pills a couple days ago, earlier than he prescribed, and she’s not irritated like she was. I just thought the medicine would wear off my now.
My wife thinks we should buy a litter box since one of our friends has one for their dog and he uses it. But Trixie’s not a pup and I don’t think she’d learn to use it.
