Excessive Urination in Dogs

dogurinationIf 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. Even if you see him lapping up lots of water from his dog water bowl, excessive urination is not normal.

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 frequently. If will seem that you are constantly filling up his water bowl.

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.

Doggie Eye Discoloration

eyestainMany light colored dogs, especially small breeds like the Maltese develop a brown or pink stain around the corners of their eyes. Sometimes it actually looks like the dog has been crying muddy tears. Do not try to administer pet medication yourself to solve the problem. The color of the tears themselves is not what’s causing the stain. When there is extensive wetness around your dogs eyes, the area tends to breed yeast and bacteria which reacts with clear tears to cause discoloration. To prevent staining, keep the area around your pets eyes clean and dry and try to get at the reason for your dogs excessive tearing. It could be irritation, blocked tear ducts or even genetics. Have your veterinarian examine your pet. There are pet medication like prescription eye drops that can help.
