Is it got to do with the weather being at 16 to 20 degrees centigrade in bangalore?
Should we be concerned

Hi XXXXXXX

Yes you are correct!
In cold weather people do ass urine more frequently.

But if she has any other symptoms like crying when passing urine,,fever,poor appetite etc,it may suggest urinary infection.
A urine routine and culture may be needed if suspected.

For the time being just watch her!

Good luck
God bless
