Hi
I am the new Mommy to a miniture American Eskimo puppy , Ozzie , is just five months old, and I notice that he urinates an awful lot for a five month old puppy he is urnating about every fifteen to twenty minuites. Can anyone give me some answers to what the problem might be.

Small breed puppies have tiny little bladders and not much control. They pretty much have to go every time they drink, wake up, or play.

How much is he drinking? Is he able to "hold it" at all? At 5 months old, he should be able to hold for awhile if he is confined, like in a crate.
Have you had him checked by the vet?

Oh no he is not confined to any crate , he has the full run of our home .he has his paper that he uses ,and he does go out when we take our lab out but as soon as he is back in the house he will use his paper. I am not too concerned about why I was just scared that he may be Diabetic or something like that .
Thank you so much for your reply
