Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. Yes, I would definitely recommend taking him to the vet. Increased drinking and urination can be symptoms for a few different diseases. The 2 most notable ones we see in cats are chronic kidney failure and diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes). It is possible it could be a problem with the liver, adrenal glands, hyperthyroidism and even a different type of diabetes (insipidus). Your vet needs to run some blood work and a urinalysis. Usually the answer lies there. With any of these diseases, but especially with kidney problems and diabetes, you want to catch it early before further complications arise. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
