Thanks for the info.

 

I am highly suspicious of diabetic ketoacidosis. Other possibilities include kidney and liver failure, pancreatitis, and cancer. He really needs to go see your vet or the ER as soon as possible. He needs to get an exam, bloodwork, and urinalysis, at the bare minimum. Treatment is dependent on the results. At the very least, he needs IV fluid therapy. Please do not delay as this is something you want to find out the culprit as soon as possible, before it is too late.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks.
