puppy peeing a LOT
« on: October 21, 2007, 06:25:13 am »
Sam seems to need to pee way more than usual today. He hasn't drank more than a bowl of water since this morning, but he's begging to go out and pee almost every hour (way more frequently than usual) and he's peeing a LOT each time. He's also had several accidents in the house today, which he rarely does now. How could he be peeing so much, especially as he hasn't drunk much? Could this be a sign of a UTI?

peeing often can be a sign of a UTI, but typically it's only small amounts at a time.  if he was drinking a ton and not eating i would say to get him checked for worms.  axle did that and had whip / hook worms.  but you said he isn't drinking a lot.  is he getting water from somewhere outside?  maybe there's a pot or something he's drinking out of that you haven't noticed?

That is also a symptom of diabetes.
