Just an update... Turns out that it was some sort of reaction to the neuter procedure performed by Dixie Day Spay in Cleveland Tennessee. We were misled by the pound and was not informed that my vet could have performed the neuter to complete the adoption process. The pound said Dixie Day Spay was the place that satisfied the adoption contract. My baby was given intravenous sedation anesthesia and developed toxicity which effected his kidneys. Not that Dixie Day Spay cared, since they made us pick him up in less than one hour after the procedure or he would have been taken back to the pound.
Thank goodness my vet told us to allow Deacon to drink and urinate as much as he wanted. Otherwise, he could have experienced severe kidney damage. Deacon's initial tests indicated that his kidneys could not concentrate his urine and kidney failure was in his future. After a week of all the water he wanted and a round of antibiotics, his kidney function is now performing in the normal range and can hold his urine for 6 to 7 hours instead of going every 2 hours.

|Shade||I agree a vet check is in order, hopefully it's something simple like a UTI|

|binea||They are kept in a single car garage that is all the theirs and is attached to the kitchen with the door left open. Not sure why this is so important and why so much judgement. They spend several hours a day outdoors when the weather permits and the garage is their den. Thanks for the suggestions.|

Moved to heath!
I agree with the others, sounds like possible UTI. I'd have the vet check it out.

|binea||How do I move it to Health?|

This should be moved to the Health section.
In addition to checking for a UTI, I would have bloodwork done to check his kidneys. This is definitely not normal.

you don't crate them but why are your dogs kept
in a 8x10 garage?

Yep, vet check is in order.
Could be a urinary track infection or could be due to the neutering. Take a morning catch urine sample the day you are going to the vet.

|binea||I do not crate them. I tried crating one time to see if Deacon could hold his urine. My dogs have a full twin pillow top mattress that they enjoy. No accidents as long as puppy pad is down or he taken outside every hour or hour and half.|

going to the Vet is your best choice. i don't
think online diagnoses will help.
why do you keep your dogs in a crate in the garage?
