Hello. My name is***** am happy to help you with your question. Give me just a moment to respond and type.

I​s he neutered? How often does he urinate? Has his urine always had the skunk odor or is that new?

he is neutered. He goes about every 3 hours on average but he can hold it longer at times. The strong skunk smell is new, very pungent odor.

T​hank you, that is a pretty bad odor. It sounds like he most likely has a bacterial urinary tract infection. The bacteria cause the bad odor. A vet will have to check a urine sample and then prescribe antibiotics. It sounds like he is stable. As long as there is not blood in the urine, he is eating and not vomiting, he can wait until tomorrow to see the vet.

Ok, thank you so much for your help. I will make an appt to bring him to the vet tomm. Thanks again!

Y​ou are very welcome : )
