William, I am confused you said No and Yes to #1?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I meant your question No1 is yes

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 3 years ago.
Thank you for answering all my questions William.

In response to your question, urine out put is directly related to water intake. As far as water intake, she can get water from the food or drinking directly from her bowl. If her diet has not changed then the only possible explanation for a decrease volume of urine and normal frequency is that she is drinking less water. To increase the volume of urine you need to get her to drink more. To get her to drink more you can offer her low sodium chicken broth. Otherwise, she should be ok. What you are describing is Not consistent with any underlying medical disorder.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
