    Default diabetes???

    I have a 22month old CLF that seems to have an unquenchable thirst and seems to be urinating excessively. She has also had some coat issues with her skin being very dry. I recently changed her food and that seems to have resolved her coat issues but not her drinking and urinating issues. As far as activity goes she never seems lethargic but she does seem to get overheated quickly. I was hoping somebody might have had some experience with this and could offer some advice.

    Take the dog to the vet. The seemingly heat stress may also be from low blood glucose.
    Do for others with no desire of returned favors. We all should plant some trees we'll never sit under.

    Liver and kidney issues can also create those types of problems.

    Probably work a work up from the vet.
