Why is my puppy peeing all the time?

I've noticed Kassie, my puppy, has been peeing an awful lot. I walked her less than five minutes ago, and she went number 1 two times outside and number 2 once. She came in and was playing for a bit, then wandered off and pee'd in the floor. I think she's pee'd about 17 times today.
Is this natural or is anything wrong, like a uniary track infection?

Yup, I'd definitely collect a "sample" for the vet to check. Get a cup under her at that critical moment, refrigerate, and take to your vet the same day!

How old is your puppy? The younger they are, the more often they need to go. But from what you describe, this is an INcrease in frequency, which means you should have her checked...

Eight weeks, Tess. We just got her Thursday and she hasn't been to the vet yet, but we're scheduled to go next weekend for her puppy shots, a checkup, and everything else, so we're taking care of her, don't worry. I'll get a sample like you said and take it next weekend to find out.

Ah! She's just a wee one!
Well I am SURE you are taking excellent care of her. It is clear you are a very loving and knowledgeable owner

It's sometimes hard to tell if such a young puppy has a UTI, as they tinkle so often at this age anyway! So long as she is feeling fine, full of energy and playfulness and getting into plenty of "naughty-puppy-trouble" then it does not sound urgent. I DO worry when a puppy suddenly is very mellow and well behaved! A severe UTI can come with a fever and malaise, but it sounds like your pup is not having those symptoms.

Good luck and do let us know how she is doing!
And maybe you have some pics to post of her?

BTW, here is my favorite puppy book, called "The Puppy Primer" that I just discovered. Although you sound experienced, you may still enjoy it, and there are always a few tips to pick up!

Here, I'll send the whole search link. There is a new and older edition, as well as some other books by the same author, who is truly wonderful.

Amazon.com: puppy primer Amazon.com: puppy primer


Puppies are one of my favorite topics, and I just love when someone such as you, comes onto the forum and will talk about her puppy! We get lucky here to vicariously enjoy the joys (well, and challenges too!) of puppyhood when folks will share their experiences.

Thanks, Tess She's being playful and ALWAYS getting into trouble! So maybe everything's fine. Here are some recent pictures of her:





Although you may have already seen them pics before in the Dog Pictures forum on the "Lazy Day at Home" topic.

Oh My Gosh! She is SOOO incredibly cute! And very teeny tiny too! How much does she weigh... do you know yet?

Yes, getting into trouble is a puppy's number one job!
