The family dog (the dog my Parents got for us when we were young children) is having accidents in the house (urine and feces). She is about 12 years old.
I feel that we have to let her outside every 30 minutes. She has never had any issues like this before. Is this just old age? What can we do for her?

1. take her to the vet for a check up
2. doggie diapers (I improvise with women's brief's cut down the front and a pad) work for urine but not feces. Commercial ones may work for both.

A lot depends on the dog's issues - like does she have arthritis or skeletal issues or is she just incontinent.

Accupuncture & chiropractic may help (again, depending on what's going on).

I'd be worried that she'd try to rip the diapers off, but I could try them out.

She gets around very well. She's a healthy weight, she can stand and lay down easily, run around, etc.

I'll make sure she sees the vet.
