Perhaps you have noticed your dog urinating frequently, as in every 10 minutes or so. Maybe you notice your puppy trying to urinate and only see a few drops come out each time. When you see your puppy frequently urinating small amounts, there is reason to be alarmed.
Frequent urination is a common problem in dogs, particularly in bitches. A female puppy frequently urinating small amount usually has an underlying bacterial infection. Other causes include bladder stones, hormonal imbalance, birth defects, tumors, and polydypsia.
If your puppy frequently urinating small amounts has bladder stones it probably means they are blocking her urinary flow. The bladder eventually gets so full that it presses against the blockage and urine leaks around it.
A puppy frequently urinating small amounts due to hormonal imbalance could have a problem with her kidneys being unable to concentrate urine. Dehydration could result and be fatal in this case so you have to make sure that your puppy has enough fresh, filtered water to drink.
If a birth defect is the reason for your puppy frequently urinating small amounts, only your vet will be able to figure that out. Female huskies are commonly born with defects that make them constantly drip urine. Corrective surgery may be necessary in this case.
A puppy frequently urinating small amount could also have a tumor or other serious disease. When you take your dog to the vet, the vet will do some tests and exams to determine what the underlying problem is.
Polydypsia is a condition that is characterized by obsessive water drinking. It will lead to your puppy frequently urinating small amounts.
So what can you do when you find your puppy frequently urinating small amounts? Don’t panic. Get started with aggressive home treatment first of all. Give your puppy a homeopathic remedy.
Homeopathy works the best with regular use but it is also effective as a treatment when you notice symptoms coming on. Look for a homeopathic remedy that contains ingredients like uva ursi and cantharis. These natural ingredients are known to strengthen and maintain a healthy bladder, urinary tract, urine flow, and immune system.
Also make sure that your puppy’s diet is optimal. Avoid commercial dog food and feed him raw unprocessed meats. Give him plenty of fresh, clean, filtered water to drink as well. Get him on a regular potty schedule so he’s not holding urine for hours and hours.
Do your pup a favor and start home treatment as soon as you notice your puppy frequently urinating small amounts. If you wait too long to do something about it, the problem could even become fatal. Get a homeopathic remedy and read up on natural, preventive treatments so you can help your dog maintain a healthy bladder and urinary tract for years to come!
