Siberian Husky Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 11/26/2010
I have a Siberian who is 14 years old, female, spayed. Lately she's been peeing places like her bed, my kitchen floor and not where she's accustomed to when she's inside. She used to be an outdoor only dog until last year when I had foot surgery and she went to a foster home for approx.6 months. After she came back to me I noticed all types of changes. Now she seems more confused, will just stand and face a corner without moving or paces in the same spot over and over things like this. My question is - should I put her down for this or does anyone know if there is a cure? Also one of her hind legs seems weak when she climbs stairs she falls down...I'm at a loss at what I should do? thanks for any advice.

12/4/10 Hello: It sounds like her eye site is going dim and her hearing may also be going. At age 14 this is common. Take her outside potty more often, moniter her water intake and of course feed her a good senior food. At that age I also include vitamins, powder you can dust on food. If she is having problems on stairs, try to keep her away from the stairs with baby gates so she does not hurt herself. Seniors can have very healthy active lives, keep walking and playing with her and ofcourse if she is starting to suffer, then consider the alternative. Hope this helps Denise Denise
