    Question: urinates when sleeping, has lost weight, but eats well. Are her kidneys starting to fail, or is it possibly a hormone imbalance, she has had that in the past.

    It is impossible to say whether the incontinence while sleeping is related to a common, estrogen-responsive geriatric problem, a urinary infection, or due to some internal disorder such as kidney disease, Diabetes Mellitus etc. As a canine senior citizen, I would advise having some baseline bloodwork run. These results will allow your vet to treat her for the appropriate condition.
