drinking lots of water

My 12 year old jack has been drinking a lot I'd water lately...if i fill his bowl he will drink it,all. Five minutes later, he will be scratching at his bowl for more. He is also peeing in the house a lot, even right after he has gone outside. His belly has also gotten huge with no change in amount of food he eats. : (

Jack Russell drinking lots of water

Sorry to hear about whats been going on with your Jack. Since he is getting up there in years, I would call your vet to make an appointment. The vet may ask you to bring a urine sample in so that they can test for diabetes, kiddney issues, Cushings, etc. Hopefully it's nothing but it never hurts to check.
