My sister's female senior sheltie Jasmine (on the right) is not going out to do her business in the morning. She refuses to go out when she gets up to let her out. Needless to say, she is getting frustrated with her. When you are preparing to leave in the morning for work and time is of the essence, it makes it difficult. She tries 3 times and still, she will not go out. She has been limping lately and she has been on Rimadyl. My guess is she is in pain. Since she is older, possibly a ramp might need to be built for her to go up and down the stairs more easily. Just a guess. She is having accidents in the house due to her reluctance to go outside! Any suggestions/thoughts would be appreciated!
