My 14 year old jack Russell starting drinking more water. Lots more water. Which of course has increased his urination. He otherwise has no other symptoms. His appetite does appear to have increased as well. Could it be diabetes?

Dear Shannon,

Diabetes is one condition that produces those symptoms. You should bring a fresh, clean urine sample to your veterinarian to have it checked. It can be used to help diagnose diabetes, a urinary tract infection, or kidney damage. Please let us know what you find out and we can help you find some holistic protocols that can improve your dog's condition.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
