it's not like the other kind of diabetes in which the body has problems dealing with sugars. I think the first test they do when screening for diabetes insipidus is a test on how concentrated the urine is, then another test with water withheld for a bit to see if the concentration level elevates.


Hey, thanks for the info.! I knew I wasn't hallucinating. :wink:


Yeah..............right
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

Summer has spay incontinence and has been on DES since I got her last year. My vet at one point mentioned accupunture works on some dogs with this issue. I could get more details if you thought it might help Ruby. :|
