I am sorry to hear you are worried about your puppy. He is only 5 weeks old? Is he still with his mother?

Is the urine just dripping out, or is he straining to urinate?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no mother passed away hours after birth. I think he is straining a little he wants out a lot to try to pee
Veterinarian: Rebecca, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I am sorry he is an orphan.

The most common reason for a dog to strain to urinate is an infection in the bladder, but that would be very uncommon in such a young puppy. Bladder stones are also highly unlikely.

I am so sorry but I can't make calls for the website; that offer did not come from me.

Veterinarian: Rebecca, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I would want to feel his bladder, to see how full it is. I would also like to look at a drop of his urine under a microscope to see if there is any infection.

What is he eating? That might give me a clue.

Try to encourage him to drink and eat, if he is not eating and drinking normally.

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question
Veterinarian: Rebecca, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

There are some rare conditions where a puppy is born with "abnormal plumbing", and the urine can't pass normally.

Veterinarian: Rebecca, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I did not hear back from you; how is your puppy? Do you have any other questions?
