Hello, I am new to the forum. I have a registered Maltese and registered Yorkie. My yorkie had 5 puppies on October 18th. She is drinking excessive amounts of water. Does anyone know why? Thank you.

Did you bring her to the vet?

Yes, you need to check with the vet asap if you haven't already. Pregnancy/nursing can be very stressful--excessive thirst warrants a trip to the vet even if it isn't in a nursing dam.
