Hello, I have a 13 yr old shih-tzu,in the last month he seems to be having trouble urinating,he goes small amounts often instead of all at once. Any ideas? Thank you!!! Ken from Pittsburgh.

Could be urinary tract infection, prostate problems, crystals/stones in bladder, kidney problems...you need to take him to the vet and they will have to examine him and check a urine sample.

Hi Ken, and welcome to the board. You need to take your boy to the vet asap. He almost certainly has a urinary infection, when that area swells up with infection, he can only pee a few drops at a time and feels as if his bladder is always full. Antibiotics will take care of it.
