With seniors sometimes the "symptoms" are different -- older dogs may get a urinary tract infection and not "drink less" or even have really stinky brown urine. But when you get a behavior change (which is what that *sounds* like) your first recourse HAS to be the vet to get it accurately diagnosed.

If you can JUST before you go, see if you can catch a sample -- otherwise the vet's staff is usually pretty good at it.

VERY often a urinalysis is actually part of a "senior exam" -- which will also include some bloodwork, but it sure can catch a TON of things early enough to DO something about them.

An older dog may just plain sleep DEEPER than they used to and not wake up in time.

But honestly? Go to the vet sooner rather than later -- if it IS a UTI there is discomfort there and it can spread and be a bigger problem than it needs to be.

Good luck - let us know pretty please?
