I have a 13 year old poodle that is urinating and defacating

Customer Question

I have a 13 year old poodle that is urinating and defacating all over our home. He has always had this problem but never this bad. Over the years we have had numerous check ups with our vet, never a problem. It has gotten to the point we can't take it any longer. I feel the best for this dog is to have him euthanized. Is that terrible?, he has destroyed our 2 homes.
