Thick Urine Help!

I just got a male Doberman 8wks old and have had him for 5 days know. Today I noticed his urine is a little thick I guess you would say? But only the last section that sticks to his “business”. It’s a normal color, and Other than this he’s been doing great! No changes in his demeanor and is eating/drinking well. Has anyone had this problem before? He doesn’t seem to be peeing more often or having any pain. I’m taking him to the vet in a few days, but I’m just worried!

Hi isenia...

When you take him to the vet for his check up, bring along a fresh urine sample. Pee can be a little difficult to collect from a puppy. Still if you are concerned, it will make Rocco's vet's job easier.

Urine should never be 'thick'--sounds like you are looking at partially dried drops of urine stuck to the end of his sheath.

But the only way to find out for sure is to take a sample in to the vet--catch it as close as possible to your appointment.

An infection in a male puppy would usually show up with the puppy urinating small amounts very frequently and perhaps not being able to start a urine stream at all.

But a vet check if you have any suspicion that the urine and urination is abnormal is the first thing to do. For one thing they can be very painful for the puppy.
