Whenever there's a marked change in bowel or bladder habits, the first thing to do is to rule out a medical cause.

At night when dogs sleep, their bodily functions slow, and they produce waste at a slower rate than during the day. This is may be one reason why she appears to "hold it" at night, but needs to relieve herself more often during the day. I agree with the suggestions others have made re: giving her the opportunity to potty more frequently during the day.

Other things to take into consideration are recent changes in diet, frequency of feeding, other changes in routine, etc.

For carpet odor, I use Nature's Miracle, available at most pet stores. For stains, I like Spot Shot, but it's not guaranteed to remove odor.
