|I recently adopted Radar, a schnauzer. He was listed as a Giant mix, but he's about 47 lbs. so I think he is more of a Standard.
Here's my dilema. He is drinking water by the tons and peeing like a flood. I was afraid he may have a UTI (urinary tract infection), so the vet has him on 10 days of antibiotics. He also had a slight amount of blood in his urine and (the part that scares me) a low specific gravity.
We are going on week 2 of the meds, and no sign of improvements. Still drinking / peeing like crazy. So now I'm getting afraid he might have early renal failure or Diabetes Insipidus.
We will have to see what his urine shows next week at the vet. Hopefully it's just a UTI..but I'm having doubts.
Anyone have experience with this...renal failure or Diabetes Insipidus??
