2- Any other symptoms?
Please give me a few minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Friend, certainly increases in water intake can be a sign of an infection, hormonal disorders, kidney or liver disease, etc. to name a few causes. However, in a puppy that is very active it is likely normal. Unfortunately, on history only I will not be able to determine if this is normal vs an underlying medical disorder, I am sorry. I would recommend a hands-on examination with your vet, blood work (CBS & Chemistry profile) and urinalysis as an initial screening test.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
