Q. Dog is 15, anxious and disorientated. Poo and weeing in the house if we don't get him out quick enough. Back legs weak and he falls over but gets up.

A. There are a number of issues here, I would be concerned about spinal disease causing discomfort and reluctance to get up in time but there may also be a degree of cognitive dysfunction similar to dementia affecting his toilet training. Arrange a full physical check to assess for pain management and also to discuss neurological symptoms
