What makes a 10 yr. old jack Russell start pooping in the house. He NEVER had an accident all these years and now he likes to use my carpet.

Jack pooping in the house
by: Beth

Because of your Jack's age and the fact that he never had accidents prior I would definitely take him to the vet. It could be some sort of medical issue affecting his sphincter or due to dementia causing him to forget that he needs to go when he is outside. In the meantime buy an enzyme based carpet cleaner (you can get it at the pet store) so that all traces of smell are gone. Good luck, let us know how he is doing!
