Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. My name is Scott and I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.
Drinking excessively and a reduced appetite such as you describe would unfortunately always be a cause for concern in the dog ...
I have seen many cases over the years where the final diagnosis has ended up as one of the following ...
1. Diabetes mellitus 2. Diabetes insipidus 3. Kidney problems 4. Chronic hepatitis 5. Cushings syndrome
And these are just a few common ones, other diagnosis are possible ...
Since there is such a range of diagnosis the only advice I can give you is that you should have your dog checked over by your vet sooner rather than later. There is rarely any scope for home remedies in this sort of situation. A quick blood test will very often shed light on the matter.
I hope I am wrong and this is something very minor but as I say the combination of reduced appetite and weight loss and excessive drinking will ring alarm bells in the mind of the average vet.
Can you tell me if she has been spayed?
