Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It appears that your sweet Tyler has either severe arthritis that is blocking the nerve supply or that he has an unstable disc in his back that may be protruding into the spinal cord causing this lack of neurologic control. The incontinence in TYler's bed last night is the perfect example of this lack of control. The first thing to do is to give Tyler aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs. Try to keep him immobile while the medication is decreasing the inflammation that may be causing this lack of nerve supply. Take Tyler to your vet as soon as possible so xrays and other diagnostics can be done to determine the actual cause for his distress and the proper treatment.Does that make sense to you?
