My Westie female is nearly 13, born with skin allergies (Medrol). She can't quite make the jump to her favorite chair anymore. She bites my feet if I roll over in bed. She barks outside even if nothing there. I will do anything to make her last year's more pleasurable. She is also starting to pee on the floor at night.any help or suggestions? Thank you. Kathryn

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would like to assist you.

Does she seem to wander at night or more abnormal behavior?

Does she seem to get caught up in the house where she seems stuck?
