Have spoken about Chloey before she is having arthropen

Hi,Have spoken about Chloey before she is having arthropen injections monthly but a lot of thickening of the bones. However she is not sore at all which is great! As you can see she is getting up in age slowing down a bit tho she is quite happy to spend a day at the beach running and swimming. She eats really well, but I have noticed she is drinking more water than normal and its winter here. Diabetes? Blood test

Kakadu, Black Lab. Last weighed in December 2015 (62

Kakadu, Black Lab. Last weighed in December 2015 (62 pounds). Recently been having seizures. He weighed 54 pounds (from last December). Vet took a ton of blood testing. ALL was normal. He is TOTALLY active, HUGE appetite, playful, etc. Just curious. If the weight loss was across these 7 months, then due to the South Texas heat and his age, I can understand the weight loss. The vet wasn't concerned. BUT (question) IF the weight loss was recent due to something ""serious"", then (1) would he show other symptoms like lethargic, loss of appetite, sick, etc.? And, (2) would something show up in the blood tests? The tech said they checked everything (liver enzymes, etc., everything). I was just a mixture of curious/concerned. As said, he eats like a hog, playful, active etc. Anything to lose sleep over???

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!
