dumb question but for the past 3 days our Chow has been drinking water like crazy! She is alert, no fever, eating habits haven't changed, playful, etc. like always... but, she is drinking approximately 5 GALLONS of water every 24 hours.. outside temperature between 40 & 60 degrees... any ideas? Thanks :confused:

See a vet. Might be diabetes or her thyroid.

Or a simple uti.

Could also be bladder stones. Many possibilties but could be an easy fix too.

A vet trip is needed.
