I am so sorry you are dealing with this. My old girl was fine up until the age of 13. The last 1.5 years was a steady decline - DM, vision loss, hearing loss, dementia. It's hard to know how each thing affected her. She could have lost bowel control, because of the DM, or because of dementia. She too, would eat, the poo, if I wasn't right there to clean it up. Prior to that, she never had accidents in the house. Maybe she just thought she needed to clean it up. She often seemed confused. I sent her to the bridge at 14.5. By that time, she had no muscle mass in her rear and was having difficulty getting around. It was difficult to watch her struggle. Letting her go seemed the kindest thing to do.
