• Jaxson has been potty trained but this week he has been peeing huge amounts all over the house, plus seems to be very needy, barking all the time at us. He has never done this before Do we need to bring him in?

    Hi Denise,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. Urinary accidents along with the behavior change are concerning. This may be from an underlying medical issue like a urinary tract infection, bladder stone, or kidney disease. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause if this after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that he needs will be based on the underlying cause of the symptoms.
