Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!  My name isCustomerand I hope I can help you today with your question about Teddy

Now let’s get started…….

What are you feeding her ?

Is she getting any puppy treats ?

She eats pure balance wild and free recipe
we give her purina puppy chow treats sparingly

Anything else ?

She eats pure balance wild and free recipe

I am not sure about Pure Balance but treats of any kind have a high amount of sodium in them -- then they drink more water and pee more

For now I would stop all treats and just do the kibble and water

If sodium is an issue it will take several days but the water consumption should improve

we give her purina puppy chow training treats sparingly
That's what we do.

I would plan on having her urine checked early next week at the veterinarian to see if it is very dilute or not

Yes, for now stop the training treats, it might make a difference

For treats you can use the regular kibble

She is making more urine and since she is young she is unable to control it

Hopefully it will improve in a few days

If you have follow-up questions please post them here.  I am usually on the computer off and on during the day and I will check for your response…………DrTweed
