I'm dog-sitting two dogs (at the owners house). Last nite the male was drinking a whole lot of water and then like an hour later would go and pee in the house (like a lot and it was mostly clear.. not really yellow). He did it about two hours after that as well.
Now the last couple of days I could leave them for up tp 5 hours and there would be no accidents. He's about 3-4 years old.
Should I be worried? I've been taking them out (when I"m there) about every 2 hours so that Kiba wont have an accident and now this... What should I do?
Merico!!! long time no post, how the heck are you? hmm, symptoms of diabetes comes to mind, but surely the owner would have informed you of that. maybe he is just nervous that his owners are gone and is acting up??? me being doggie dumb, that's the only thing i can think of. =( sorry, hope he is okay.
I'm also a pet-sitter and know that you must me worried. My own dog, Bonne, had kidney disease for many years before she died and some of the symptoms you describe are those of kidney disease. I would try to place yourself in the owners shoes.... would they want you to call them ?? If you know who their vet is you could always call him and find out if this is something common to this dog.The owner is only going to be gone for two days so that is really not too long but if it was me I would want you to either contact me or the vet as it isn't normal behaviour.
