|This past week Frankie has been urinating a little more than usual, but not excessive. He USUALLY goes once in the morning when he wakes up, then again around 1:30/2:00, again after dinnertime, once at night around 9pm, and maybe once around 11:30. Maybe!! So that is, at most, 5 times a day, although it is typically more like 4 times a day.
This past week it has increased slightly, but not crazy.
He now has been going when he wakes up around 7:30, then again an hour later, then maybe again around 10:30, then again around 1:00pm, then around 3pm, after dinner, then around 7pm, 9pm, and not the super-late night 11:30 tinkle. So, that is roughly 7-8 times a day.
He has tinkled on the snow and I do not see any blood, but that is not to say there is not a trace of it in there, or something else.
He also has been drinking water a little more than usual, but again, not excessivley..He used to go to his water bowl maybe twice a day, now he goes 3 or 4 times a day.
We switched him to the Fromm food, but I really doubt that is changing his bladder/thirst habits. I do know S/O has been bad about giving him table scraps, so maybe the people food is just a little salty..?
His activity level is the same and his sleep habits are the same.
I really hate to call the vet, but better safe than sorry, I guess. Just wondered if this is truly something to worry about. He is going a little more than usual, but not excessive. I am just wondering if this is a red flag to call the vet or not..? S/O tells me I am being paranoid and the dog is fine.
