My dog keeps peeing in the middle of the night

Hi all

I have had my dog for around 4 years, he is a staff and around 6 years old. He is usually great when it comes to needing a poo or wee he cries if he needs to go out. But for the past 2/3 weeks he has been pooing and weeing in the house in the middle of the night. We have managed to stop the pooing for the past few nights by not feeding him after around 6pm. But the weeing has carried on. He always has water but never really notice him drinking it apart from when he has been out to cool down. I'm just abit puzzled as to why hes doing it. Any advice of help would be appreciated.

Any change in behavior like that warrants a trip to the vet to ensure nothing is medically wrong.

I agree a vet check would be in order. At this age it's not likely a behavioural issue. Your vet may want you to collect a urine sample for analysis. Definitely have it checked out. Good luck and let us know. We care.
