And now his water intake has gone through the roof yesterday alone 12 dishes of water and today 2 dishes so far, he's urinating a lot too including doing it twice in the house now (which in 3yrs he's never done)
His food intake is the same and he seems well in himself
So any ideas anyone going out of my mind with worry
It could be as simple as a urinary track infection or as serious as Cushing's, Diabetes or Kidney failure! I'd get a urine sample and make a vet appointment ASAP!
The excessive water intake is causing the frequent urination and peeing in house.
Has he had any shots or flea/tick meds applied recently? This can cause the itching.
