She eats really well, but I have noticed she is drinking more water than normal and its winter here. Diabetes? Blood test

My dog is 9, he is a springer pit mix and weighs about 85

Hello! My dog is 9, he is a springer pit mix and weighs about 85 lbs. For the past few months he has been OBSESSED with water, to the point he is digging under our fence to get to our rain bucket in the front yard. We took him to the vet and had his urine and blood checked, and they came back perfect...my vet doesn't seem worried, but I am...I'm wondering if it could be a thyroid issue possibly or what else I should do besides FIND A NEW VET...help. I love my dog so much and SOMETHING is driving this thirst...if you fill his bowl, he will drink it DRY then pee and start the hunt for more, even licks the deck to get water, its out of control and something is wrong!

My parents dog has just turned 16 and seems generally quite

HiMy parents dog has just turned 16 and seems generally quite fit and content but is refusing to eat which is very frustrating and worrying for us. She also drinks a lot of water and sleeps a lot.She was previously taken to see vet who just told us to feed her anything she'll eat which I thought was quite unhelpful. I have tried to encourage my parents to take her to another vet but think they are loathe to do so in case they say something serious is wrong and that she has to be put to sleep.I thought that, even if she does have a condition, that it could maybe be managed in some way!? Do you have any advice? (Yesterday all she ate was one schmacko treat and today all she's eaten is a third of a cocktail sausage!)

My 12 year-old dog Lucy has started wetting our bed. This happened

My 12 year-old dog Lucy has started wetting our bed. This happened once last week, once earlier this week, and twice last night. She is scheduled to see her vet on Tuesday for a growth on the right side of her bum that she has had for months. My question is, if she has a UTI, USMI, or Diabetes Insipidus, should I take her to the emergency vet rather than waiting for her appt on Tuesday? She is eating, drinking, and seems to be her normal self. However, she does pant at times and her breath has a noticable odor, which is not normal for her.

Pearl, we just got a 1.5 month old mastiff / staff

Hi Pearl, we just got a 1.5 month old bull mastiff / staff puppy two days ago (few days after he got the first shots) and he has been drinking and urinating excessively (probably 2-3 times more than our other 2 month old am.bulldog pupp). He has solid stool, good appetite and doesn't look sick. Its just the dehydration issue that concerns us. Could this be an infection? Stress? Our main concern is problems with kidney problems or diabetes. Should we wait few more days and then take him to a vet if he is not improving? Thanks so much for looking into this,JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Problems with drinking can be serious. I'm glad you noticed it. The Veterinarian will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: No, just excessive drinkingJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
