Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Bella has been having some problems. A couple of things that can cause increased hunger in older dogs are diabetes and Cushing's disease. Is Bella overweight?
