Why Is My Yorkie Peeing So Much? (9 Possible Reasons)

If your puppy is peeing more frequently than usual, there could be several reasons behind this behavior. Here are nine possible reasons why your puppy may be peeing so much:

1. Age and Development

  • Puppies have smaller bladders and weaker bladder control compared to adult dogs. Increased urination could simply be a result of their age and stage of development.

2. Excessive Water Intake

  • Your puppy may be drinking more water than usual due to factors such as hot weather, increased physical activity, or simply being thirsty. This can lead to more frequent urination.

3. Dietary Changes

  • Changes in your puppy’s diet, such as switching to a new food or treats, may affect their water intake and subsequently increase urination.

4. Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

  • UTIs are common in puppies and can cause increased urination, along with other symptoms such as frequent accidents, straining to urinate, and blood in the urine. Consult your veterinarian if you suspect a UTI.
