Good morning and welcome to Justanswer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian, and would like to help.Since Chunk is so young, there is a good chance that he is suffering from a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) which will cause him to feel like he has to urinate often with nothing coming out. This may require antibiotics from your vet but you can try giving him Methigel, available at the pet store, a dose every 6 hrs which will acidity the urine. If this does not help or Chunk becomes anorexic and lethargic, have your vet examine him since there is slight chance that he could have an obstruction.Does that make sense to you?Please let me know if you have any other questions. I am always happy to help.
