Excessive urination in dogs

Sunday, October 23, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

If you notice that your dog is urinating more than usual or having frequent “accidents” in the house, then there is a problem. Here are some possible reasons.

1.Canine Urinary tract infections or Canine Cystitis means that your dog’s bladder is inflamed because of infection. This causes the need for her to urinate more often.

2. Bladder stones in dogs are also a fairly common problem. The stones form when high mineral levels in the urine crystallize and form stones.

3. If your dog is older, your vet may suspect a hormonal imbalance which affects your dogs kidney function.

4.Canine Diabetes  unfortunately is on the rise these days. As a result, your dog will drink more water and urinate more frequenctly.

5.Cushings Disease is a disease that usually affects older dogs. Along with hair loss and weight gain, you’ll notice your dog drinking more water and urinating more.

Don’t try to diagnose any of these diseases by yourself or administer any pet medication that is not prescribed by your vet. Contact your vet immediately and he’ll ¬†administer the necessary tests and make the final diagnosis.

Remember, your pets count!
