Yes, it is common when dogs are having gastrointestinal issues to urinate or defecate in odd places. This is what you can do:
1- Pepto Bismol 1 tablespoon every 8 hours for 1-2 days.
2- No food or water for 8-12 hours, need to give her gastrointestinal tract time to rest. Then, offer a small amount of water followed by a diet of rice (75%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%) until the stool is back to normal then wean her back into her regular diet.
3- Supplement with a probiotic, these are friendly bacteria that help with regularity. You can buy this over the counter in any pet store.
4- If after doing the above you do not see improvement within 24 hours I would have her checked by your family veterinarian for a hands on examination. Symptoms that would require ER vet visit are lethargy, vomiting, abdominal swelling, pale gums, etc.
