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 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
diapers..?

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

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
hard.
He pants alot even though he is in the a/c. Just how much water is too much? Thank you

We have a six year old lab who has started drinking an excessive amount of water in the last month. He doesn't seem to be urinating more, however. He is walked on a leash, therefore, we see when he urinates. We changed his food to "Blue" which he refused to eat after two days and lost a lot of weight (which he could easily afford to lose). This was about the same time. We changed his food a week ago to "Natural Balance" both were the weight management variety. He is a very active, happy dog. The water consumption has continued to be very heavy. If he were ill wouldn't he at least be lethargic?

We used to have a Bull Terrier who would freak out when he saw us packing to go on vacation. He'd stop eating and start drinking water by the gallon until he was puking water all over the place. The first time it happened it really scared us until the vet ruled out anything serious and told us that was just the way our dog was coping with a bad case of nerves. We had to severely limit his water intake for a couple of days until his stomach settled down. After we actually left on our trips, the dog was fine with his caretakers. Go figure.
