Ruby to the vet tomorrow for blood work :(

I am so nervous about my little Ruby. Shes 10. The last few months she looked like she was half pregnant (her belly was a little bloated). It would come and go. Then these past few days we noticed increase thirst/peeing. Then my grandmother thought she may of peed on the floor in the kitchen. So, I dont want to risk waiting until the new year so I will take her in tomorrow for blood work. Im really nervous :S Her last blood work in June was perfect. Hypothyroid has already been ruled out as per a thyroid panel a couple weeks ago.

Any ideas? Im worried its something I cannot afford to treat

I'm not going to speculate what it might be but I hope it's nothing serious and I'll keep you and Ruby in my thoughts and prayers.

Sorry Ruby's not feeling good. I think you're wise to get her checked out. Might be a simple UTI. Be sure to let us know what you hear,

I hope its something simple because if its serious I am not sure if I could afford to treat it. We have already ruled out hypothyroid. Im concerned its diabetes, cushings or possibly kidney/liver problems. Im hoping its a simple UTI. I notice her symptoms were gradual. First she started to pee a little in the house (we assumed it was because we werent letting her out enough). Then she started to bloat (her belly was soft still). I figured okay well we will watch her. Then this past week my grandmother mentioned to me she noticed her drinking more so im like okay lets monitor her water intake. She has already drank almost 2 cups and its like she cant get enough.

Then she mentioned she may of peed a bit by the back door which is very weird for her. So, I told her I will take her to the clinic before the holidays. I will have blood results friday morning and hopefully some meds by that time as well because the clinic is closed for 5 days figured I'd play it safe and go now rather then wait till next week.

So, maybe its nothing, maybe its something small....but nonetheless I need to know what it is or im not going to function. Shes my mothers dog, if anything happens to her it will be the last remaining possession of my mothers I have left

It's a very cute belly, even if bloated . Looks very rubbable! Hope it's all OK.
