Hi,
Captain just turned 6 in June and has been healthy up until the last few weeks
The last few months his behaviour has changed, not interested in any toys, slow, and is now part of our furniture
In the last few weeks he's drinking excessive water and then urinating everywhere!
He can't hold his bladder for more than 1 hour
He pee's while going outside to his pee spot, he pee's while he's eating, he pees just sitting there
Urine test came back negative
Blood test came back with nothing alarming
Now waiting for more in-depth blood test to rule out or confirm low Thyroid
We are already $600 in and if his Tyroid comes back normal, I'm not sure what else we can do but throw $ down a rabbit hole

definitely test for both diabetes and cushings disease as both of those disorders can cause these symptoms

Did they test his urine for an infection? Boys get those too my female had one not too long ago she would pee alot but didn't notice her drinking alot as well Thyroid would be easy to deal with and those meds are relatively cheap, Is he overweight? I hope his tests come back with nothing serious.
