    I noticed recently that my dog Satchmo’s urine seems off colored. It’s been a darker orange color for the last several days. Is this something we need to get checked out or cause for concern? Thanks for your help!

    • Hi Britta,
      It is first important to discuss how Satchmo is doing overall. Normal appetite and water intake? Any vomiting, diarrhea, or weight loss? Any increase in frequency of urination or accidents in the house? If you feel that there are any other changes occurring with Satchmo, then I would recommend a consultation with your primary veterinarian. If the off-colored urine is the only concern, then I would recommend submitting a first-urine sample of the morning for a urinalysis and then take your next steps based on those results.
      Take care,
