My Pom will be 10 shortly, in September, and has started drinking water in excess and wetting in the house. She has never done this before.

She needs to see the vet as it could be any number of reasons and only the vet can diagnose the problem. they can run test and make sure she gets any meds she may need and also help you to cope with her problem better.
You may have to place some restrictions on where she can be until everything is back to the previous routine.
Can you keep her in an area that will be easy to clean until she sees the vet? I'm sure you know that she feels bad that she is doing something you do not like so make sure she gets lots of love and attention.
You will have to clean any area she has had an accident as they have excellent "smell" glands and will return to that spot even when she has no health problems.


Here are a couple of links that have some facts about what may be your pom's problem.

I would take your dog to the vet. An animal that drinks excessive water has or could have diabetes. Your dog could also have a bladder infection. I had a small dog that has crystals in his urine. Please take your dog to the vet as soon as possible. Most of these problems are easily cured.

This could well be diabetes. It has become much easier to manage in pets in the last few years. See your Vet.

Your pup definitely needs a prompt visit to the vet. His/her symptoms sound as they are diabetes related. A vet will do blood work and other tests that will pinpoint your dog's malady. I had a cat with diabetes - he lived to be 28 - and when he was about 20 I noticed the excessive drinking and urination. I'd read up on diabetes and asked my vet if I could have PZI (protease zinc insulin) that was administered once a day instead of the usual twice a day regimen insulin.


She agreed, and "Gandalf" lived 8 more years.

No matter the diagnosis, listen carefully to the vet's instructions so you can treat your loved one in the best manner possible to keep them going strong. Blessings and good luck with him or her!
