Why does our new pup drink so much water?
So as many of you know we rescued a new puppy a couple months ago. He's growing fast and is getting along beautifully with our Pom and just about any other dog he interacts with. He's now about 6-7 months old. When we first picked him up he was drinking tons of water and having a lot of accidents (more than the typical puppy) We took him to the vet to finish his puppy shots and asked for a urinalysis to check for UTI. We were right, it was bad he had had it for a few months. He took a stronger than normal antibiotic for two weeks and has been all better for about 3 weeks (says the second urinalysis).
Unfortunately, he's still drinking water like he's going to die of thirst. Every time I set a bowl down he finishes it. As a result he's still having accidents during the day while we're at work and the other dog seems to not get enough water. We're wondering if a habit set in while he had the UTI or if it's something else. @Nortonstark
