Update on Lucky; Thyroid panels are normal, or Vet has left the possibility for Diabetes Insipidus for last. He agrees this may be a hormonal problem or psychological. We went as suggested above to test 5 days treatment with Desmopressin. Results, improved urination but not completely. She still goes to the bathroom in the house but no longer tends to wet herself. 5 days after no changes she still is going crazy for water. Our Vet wants to try a water deprivation test but as stated below I think this is cruel. I am seeking a good internal medicine Vet in Miami, Fl.... Any recommendations welcomed (Vetenarian #6).

Thank you for the responses... I will follow up with my Vet and start looking for an internal medicine specialist.

I have a 7 1/2yr old Golden Retriever (Hurricanes Katrina rescue) that for the past two (2) years has stumped 5 different Vet's and I'm desperate. The problem: our dog drinks a lot of water (we go to the dogpark and she will drink until we pull her from the bowls). she regularly looses bladder control and if lying down will urinate herself. she will urinate while stand next to me while playing! she is crate trained and i have caught her licking up her urine and confirmed if left alone this is what she does during the day. This is what we know: she has been tested several times and confirmed to have Addison disease she has been tested for diabetes - negative. She has chronic UTI's and ear infections. We have noticed her rear legs low muscle tone/mass. The rest of her blood work is normal as long as we keep the Addison in check. She is playful and enjoys our home with a second dog. I need help... Any thoughts? dog
