As some may know we have taken on an older APBT whilst moving house. He is actually only about 11 I though he was older he looks alot older.

Its spring here so its not like its hot. But this dog drinks SOOO much water he will lap it up for about 3-4 minutes at a time and does this all throughout the day. I've had no experience with this and sure its not normal. He is heavily obese this may be why???

This is him, his name is Cyris :)

Not normal and could be an indicator of several diseases and at that age I would do a blood test to confirm what is going on. Anything from Diabetes to cushing's. That needs to be treated by a vet to get the proper diagnoses and treatment.

I will let the owner know that im concerned about how much water he is drinking. I have put him on a diet too hehe.

AB - A friend has let me and my partner move into his house and he is going to move out, where he is going he cannot take Cyris, so the condition was we take him on. Which mean Stage is chained all day now :( I take him out in the car with me. I just wish I could walk him, being as pregnant as I am I can't as he pulls so much.
