• My puppy has been urinating on average like 2-3 an hour is this normal or should he be urinating less?

    Hi Brian,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this. The frequency of urination that is normal will depend on a few different factors including your puppy’s age, breed, size, and overall health. In very young puppies, around 6-8 weeks of age, going this often is not surprising but as they get older the length of time between when they go will also increase. Since your vet knows your pet they can give you the best answer on if this is normal or not for your puppy. If you see any other signs like straining to urinate or blood in the urine, you should take your puppy into see a vet as soon as possible.
