cold muzzle

my dog is a 7 year old male dalmatian. I just noticed today that his muzzle to the stop is cold and he is not urinating very well. Is he sick ? He is still very playful and active but I am just worried.
HELP !!!!

to my knowledge, it is extremely difficult to if a dog is sick, simply by feeling the nose.

how can u tell that he's not urinating "very well"?

perhaps he is drinking less, so he's peeing less...

or is it that he's so excited by what's outdoors, that he doesn't take much time to stay still and pee, instead he starts walking off as he's finishing off....?

Myth #1 about dogs and their noses..... cold/wet/dry/warm has nothing much to do with whether they are sick or not, it could just be the environment.

Dogs pee out what they put in LOL just as we do

Is there a change in drinking water and urination?
