My 11 yr old lab hasn't eaten in 2 days, he's been laying down and drinking lots of water. Now this am he was a bit more happy but had diarrhea and still wouldn't eat. Being he's less lethargic, he even had a short walk (slow) he enjoyed I'm thinking to wait a another dAy to see my vet, I'm financially strapped but I'm concerned about his drinking water only

Robin, WHY the Lack of DISCLOSURE, I would be shouting at the roof tops to let people know that the local 'vet' is TOTAL WASTE OF SPACE, INCOMPETENT AND HAS NO COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS OR THE PEOPLE THAT LOVE THEM. It would seem to me that you would not want others to go thru what you have in trying to help your dog. Word of mouth is the best advertisement there is. I hope your Lucy is feeling better and you might try getting one of those shirts that they make exclusively for dachshund type dogs to help w/ back problems. I lost the love of my life to IVDD 1 year 4 days ago, he was only 5 years old, his name was BO WILLIS and not 1 day goes by that I don't think of him and wish I had done something, anything different that day. Take care.

My dog is 13 and has an ear infection smells bad, lumps on his stomach and one protruding from behind, also drinking lots more water than usual. I think it is time to let him rest but my daughter, his best friend 21 is out of town until next month. is it awful if my husband does not wait to have Jackie my daughter next to him for this last visit to the vet?

My dog has started drinking alot of water lately. She was my Dad's dog and he died on Jan, 2010. She is all I have left of Daddy. He loved her and I do to. She drinks a 5 gallon bucket in two days. The vet said it may be kidneys. He said she will have to be tested. I hope that she will be okay.

I have a 4 year old female Chi-Weenie. Just recently she has started drinking a LOT of water. Early last year I had problems with our local vet CONSTANTLY telling me she had kidney/bladder infections like every other month and would just give me bactrim and pain med and send me home and that went on for a while and I took her in one morning and asked the attendant to have the vet ex-ray her when she got there because we thought she had back problems (I had discussed this before and NO attention given to the matter). 4 hours later I get a call and they said Lucy was ready and it was a KIDNEY infection! I asked if they had ex-rayed her, NO! I asked why,"Ashely (the vet) said she didn't need to,she had a kidney infection,come get her she's ready"! I told them that I would be there in 3 minutes and she had better had her ex-ray or being ex-rayed when I get there! I get there and the vet is standing in one of the rooms behind the desk and she sees me and slams the door! The attendant tells me to "SIT down and I'll get Lucy". She brings me Lucy and I ask to speak to Ashley, "SHE IS VERY BUSY, and said to tell you Lucy has a KIDNEY infection and to keep her away from scraps"!!!! I had a problem with my sister giving her daughter's dogs scraps and Lucy would sneak down and eat some and get sick but NOT that often only once or twice and my sister took control of the situation for me. That was the last time I took Lucy there and started taking her to another vet 25 miles away and she did NOT have a kidney infection she has back problems!!!! In her neck area and her lower back and possible pancertitis! I will NEVER take her back to my local vet again. When I pick her up she just kinda moans like a wheezing moan. She's done that for at least a year or so. and she moans when she moves lying on her pillow or in bed at night.

i have a 14 year old shiba inu who is drinking lots of water and sometime goes potty in the house (very unusual for this breed) earlier in the spring her blood tests and urine test were fine however she continues to drink a lot of water - should i have her checked again. She also seems to be getting dementia. gets confused, gets scared and only likes a routine. For example this is a dog that always loved to ride in the car and now gets agitated

I have a 10 1/2 year old Rottie who has been drinking an increased amount of water lately. I lost my Dachshund to an adrenal gland tumor last year so I know all about Cushings. The blood/urine tests came back normal so her kidneys and liver are functioning well. What are other reasons for increased water consumption? I have been putting beef broth on her food in the last month and wondered if the sodium in it would cause her to drink more.

I have 1 1/2 yr old Beagle pup. Drinking excessive water. we have been trying to limit hs intake for the first time. He was not doing well. Constantly going to his dish pushes it around to let us know he is thirsty. So I gave him about 6 oz., he then ate his dinner so I gave him 6 more. I then took him out and he proceeded to lick the snow. Got him to stop and pee but then he came in and began to shake and shutter. After about 15 min. it stopped and now he is sleeping peacefully. Do you have a read on that?

My dog has been recently drinking lots of water too and he had blood test and urine and it was normal. I'm concerned with his excessive drinking so what else can it be.

My 6 and a half year old Maltese drinks excessive amounts of water and can not hold her bladder, she pees anywhere anytime, and often throws up after drinking too much water... I dont know what this may be it just started happening about a year and a half ago....

do you think its Diabetes?

How can this be fixed? should I always give her water and get her some

Im thinking of getting her a blood test but I dont trust the vets they overcharge and overdramatize things to make me spend more

Our 12 year old rottweiler/lab mix is overweight.

He is drinking excessive amounts of water lately.

He urinates normally but for long periods of time.

If the kidneys are below the surface on his backside above his hips, they appear to feel
He pants alot even though he is in the a/c. Just how much water is too much? Thank you
