Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: puppy pee, normal or not?   Sun Aug 26, 2012 2:06 am

i have a barely 3 month old siberian named Nanook. he has only been with me 3 days, so he is still adjusting. the problem is that he goes potty quite often. He is drinking a lot of water, and he is also a puppy so i expect him to go to the bathroom often, but this is more than "often". as in a couple times every hour. is this normal? or should i be concerned about a UTI or something?

That can be normal. Is he really active? Cato would pee after everything - play, sleep, eat, anything. Does it happen when he's sleeping at night?

I would say normal, especially if he's drinking a lot of water. When Ghost was that age we'd have to take her out every 20-30 minutes, and sometimes we had accidents in between. If it seems like he doesn't know he's peeing (like peeing while he walks around) or he's peeing while crated (assuming the crate is the appropriate size), that would be cause to take him to the vet. Try setting a schedule, seriously with 20 minute intervals when he's not sleeping or crated, and work up from there.

He does drink a TON of water throughout the day so i assumed that was a huge factor. He has been getting a lot better, only has had one accident at night time otherwise he is pretty good at sleeping through the night. I figured it was normal, we just need to get on a more frequent routine to take him out. Thank you all for the replies!

yea actually the couple i got him from did his first round of shots, and i just took him on saturday to get his second 5 in 1 shot, nasal bordetalla, and a second deworming. i take him back in 4 weeks to get his last round of shots and his rabies vaccine. Even in just the past 2 days he has improved greatly on his peeing in the house (as have we on taking him out more regularly). thanks for all the help, ill keep you updated!

I just got my second pup about 3 weeks ago, and he is 10 weeks old now. He pees ALL the time! It does not seem like he drinks a lot of water, but I probably take him out once or twice an hour. As soon as he wakes up or after playing I take him out right away.

He poops more than my other dog did, though. He probably poops like 6 or 7 times a day. Im keeping count today just to see how much though lol.

He has only peed once in his crate though. At night I take the water away around 7pm and we go to bed at 10pm. He usually makes it until almost 6am, but sometimes he will wake up around 4 if he’s had water too late.
