Q. My corgi pants a lot and is now peeing a strong smelling pee and in his kennel which unusual! No dietary problems or other problems! Any ideas?

A. a strong smelling urine can indicate an infection, might be a urinary infection but might also be an infection elsewhere. The panting and him staying in the kennel could be indicative of pain, discomfort or fever. My advice would be to go to the vet, if you can bring a urine sample in a clean plastic container that would be even better (fresh sample of urine only), this way the vet could perform a urine analysis right away and potentially give you the answer.
