I have an eight year old neutered, male West ghland Terrier.

I have an eight year old neutered, male West Highland White Terrier. At three, he was diagnosed with copper hepatotoxicosis, and has been on a vet directed, copper restrictive diet since (cottage cheese and white rice, with Hill's Diet l/d - dry). I noticed a few months ago he developed two (somewhat hard) 'lumps' on both sides towards his hips. They are about three inches (horizontally) by two inches (vertically), and my vet assured me they were 'fat pads' and not to worry.I've noticed recently that when he urinates, he'll empty his bladder once, and then squat to pee again. The second time, very little comes out. He hasn't had any accidents around the house; he's eating fine, and drinking plenty of water. He does seem to be drinking more, although it's hard to say whether or not his consumption has increased due to weather (it's been 100+ here lately) or some other factor. Either way, the increase in nominal.My vet is unavailable for several days, and I'm hesitant to take him to the other vet in town unless this is an emergency. Is this something I need to be very concerned about?
