    Defaultshould i worry ??

    question.

    Apple doesn't urinate as much as she use to. 2-3 times a day and thats it.
    She seems happy and doesn't seem to have problems as she's urinating but she's just not doing it enough. Casey goes about 4 times.

    How many times do your dogs pee a day?
    And should i be worried ?

    If she's drinking normally and her urine looks normal I wouldn't worry too much. You could always ask your vet about it too, they might have an idea

    Jake usually is a 2-3x daily guy, but sometimes it's just once a day - wish I could do that

    I have 2 who are total opposites. Diesel could and has peed 15 times a day. Blaise often goes just twice. He will get up in the morning, go outdoors - and not pee. Comes back in - goes out again - and does not pee. Then after he has been up for 45 minutes or so - he will go out again and browse around for a while and finally remembers that he needs to pee.

    In that whole time of Blaise futzing around outside - Diesel has peed twice.

    I wouldn't worry...are those the only time you let her out to pee? Or does she have free roam in the backyard? I mean, how do you know she is only going that amount? Koko gets let out maybe 4-5 x's a day. She does go pee 2-3x's when she goes, but they are small spurts. Maybe yours is serious about peeing and lets it all out at once.

    Puff goes out to pee and potty 3X a day -- 6:30 AM, 2 PM, 10 PM. At each of those times, she may pee 4-6X or more, leaving pee-mail messages wherever she sniffs and reads those left by others.

    She also may briefly pee when we go outside to get in the car.

    hmm... maybe apple's normal after all.
    She didn't go this morning, but she did go last night at 11pm and she did take a long stream of pee. I'm going back for lunch to see what happens.

    I might take a urine sample just to make sure she doesn't have anymore of those dreaded UTIs.

    she didn't go! Now i'm getting kind of nervous.
    I made an apt for friday.

    I know she'll most definately pee today when i get back, but this really is driving me a little nuts. I just don't want a bladder or kidney infection.

    plastic cup - held in the appropriate spot when she assumes the position. Not so hard actually.
