Hi
My Pomeranian puppy 16 weeks seems to urinate allot. I notice he’s on his Matt allot. Sometimes only small bits.
He’s very small but otherwise healthy.
Vaccinated and wormed etc up to date.
He eats well and doesn’t drink that much and has allot of energy.

Drinking more water?
Blood in urine?

No blood and not drinking more

Thanks

This may be nothing

I recommend 48 hours observation

If notice straining or continued increased frequency then take in for urine collection and analysis

Make sense?

Thank you. He’s always been like this since he was 8 weeks. It’s not new.

Yes, it may just be the "normal" for him

It may be prudent to get urine checked just to be on safe side
