My other dog went to the vet and was diagnosed with Kennel cough, it was just a matter of time until Lilo start showing symptoms too since they're together 24/7.
Lilo has coughed a few times today and yesterday, nothing alarming yet , but yeah, he will be sick soon.
The weird thing is that he has started to drink water like crazy, he is urinating at least twice as much as he normally did (not in how many times, but in urination duration ).
Yesterday he urinated all over his crate, and he never did that before.
Today he urinated in the elevator, when we were going outside for him to do his business. Again, he never did that before.
He doesn't even sits to urinate, seems like he doesn't even notice he's doing it.
Do you think this have anything to do with his cough? Maybe his throat is sore and he's drinking tons of water, idk. Any thoughts?

(I'm on the bus, so I didn't have time to proof read it, so, as always, sorry for the errors)

Lilo is 4mo

Was Lilo put on a steroid for the kennel cough? Steroids can cause frequent and uncontrolled urination. An UTI is another suspect, but definitely call your vet. He'll probably want to see him.

He isnt in any medication.
The symptoms aren't hitting him very hard, so I'll wait a little more to see if he heal by himself of if he really is gonna need to be medicated. I thought my theory of sore throat and water drinkage was in the right direction
