Hello, thank you for using this site to help you with your problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been in the dog field for 25 years. It will be my pleasure to help you today. Please understand that I may send an information request so that I may gather what I need to better help you with your problem.
Does the dog actually go to the bathroom at this time?
Also have you had a sample of her urine tested for infection or stones?
food and water can be cut after 6 pm
she definitely does go to bathroom the first time. After that sometimes she does, sometimes she just walks away, turns around and comes back.
If she bothers you to go out and she does not go then no treat. The problem is given her age she may have bladder stones or a UTI that makes her feel the need to go out, so to be on the safe side I would grab a sample and drop it off to your vet and ask them to test it
If there is an infection or stones she may need antibiotics
or a change in food
Thanks. Will try it
