I am looking for some advice. My basenji, Tosca, has had two accidents in the house in the last 3-4 days. This is very unusual for her, as she will maybe have accidents maybe 3-5 times a year at most.
The first time was around 11:30 a few days ago. I had taken her out to go to the bathroom around 9:30 (her usual time) and I was with her, so I know she went, and it seemed like a normal amount. I brought her in the bedroom with me to go to sleep at 11:30 and she was pacing around whining. I just figured she was mad to be in there with me since my husband was up in the living room (she's whined about this before) so I pretty much ignored her, figuring she'd settle down soon. Well, then she jumped up on my bed and just peed. I felt bad since she had been pacing/whining, but she had just been out a few hrs prior (normal for her before bed) so I didn't think anything of her having to go to the bathroom.
Then, just today, she did it again. This time, she peed on the living room couch (well, blanket on the couch thankfully), with no apparant pacing this time. At least I don't think so. I had been wrapping xmas gifts, and so she had been running around following me and trying to eat paper, typical b so I could have been mistaken, but she was not pawing at the door to get out or anything. This time it seemed totally random. This happened at 9:00, and she had been out to go to the bathroom at 7:30.
Any ideas on why this could be happening? It is very unlike her. My first fear that pops into my head is fanconi of course ( I know I should be strip testing, or do the DNA test, shame on me, but that is irrelevant right now), but she is not excessively drinking or anything else. She also does not seem sick at all either, her activity and appetite are normal. Her age is somewhere between 4-6 (we don't know for certain since she was a rescue), so she is not extremely old. She had been scolded before she peed tonight for getting into xmas paper, and she was pissed at being in the bedroom with me the other night, so unless it has something to do with being angry, I don't know. That would be totally new for her, though. The only other change is that with the crazy winter weather we have had recently, walks have been nonexistant for the last week or so. Thats the only other thing i can think of…
Any ideas on what could be the cause? How long should I wait to call the vet? Each time she goes its a decent amount, both the accidents and outside. Right now she is just curled up beside me so cute, its hard to be mad at her, but this is very frusturating...any advice would be great!!!
