My 8 yr old female mini schnauzer is starting to have pee

Customer Question

My 8 yr old female mini schnauzer is starting to have pee and poo accidents on my dining room carpet only in the house? I just wondered what could be the cause of this.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Chloe
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Chloe?
Customer: She had surgery for struvite stones when she was 2 but other than that has been very healthy.

When did this start happening?

Are you normally home or not home when this happens?

Has she been checked for stones recently?

Will she eliminate outside if you take her?

What have you tried to stop it?
