    Granted she is almost 15 years old, however cleaning up after her is getting really old since I'm a clean freak. Basically what happens is she notices at the last second she has to go. :ack: We have a dog door that is installed.

    We had an especially bad episode last night. Spent an hour cleaning up the trail with shop vac. :sad: I'm experimenting with various supplements that will help muscle control. Magnesium & Co Q 10.

    Any suggestions?

    well you might not want to change her diet at this stage, but science diet dog food helps the dogs stool to be firm and they dont go as often...maybe that would help. Oh yeah and it doesnt stink as bad.

    Some of my clients have excellent results in reducing stool volume with the B.A.R.F. diets (raw foods), might be worth a try.
