My Tibetan Spaniel just turned 15. In the past couple of months he has been drinking water far more then usual and having problems holding till I come home. Could he be having a serious problem?

Your Tibetan Spaniel should be checked for diabetes.

Yes. Please check for diabetes. My Samoyed had these same symptoms and tested positive. The diabetes is treatable (but not curable) so act quickly!

We had a tibetan spaniel whom recently had to be put to sleep; she was 17. She had been drinking a lot but had some other severe problems that started up and the vet did a complete blood work up and a lot of her numbers were way up. In fact, she was very close to going into kidney failure. I would at least have your vet run the numbers on your dog so you get a bigger picture of everything.
