    On the SS you wrote she's drinking a Lot of water.Has Luci ever drank a lot of water before? If this is new it might be a good time to check her Kidney Function. If anything is going on the earlier you catch it the better.
    Ravan started drinking a ton of water & I thought it was from the diabetes. Turns out it's kinney disease. If I had known sooner I would have started him on the Calcitriol & the Renadyl he now gets.

    I hope it's nothing but it wouldn't hurt to check?

    Yes, she tends to go thru 'phases'...I just thought I'd note it...she was drinking a lot of water on a few previous occasions - way back before we knew anything about diabetes - she seemed to go thru a phase of drinking a lot...and then when we thought something was wrong - one of the things she was doing was drinking a lot of water. It seems to be off and on...she'll go for a long period of time and the water just sits...and then she's back at the water...I thought I'd note it to give myself a que as to how long it lasts and the frequency of these occasions...

    Are there any other symptoms to her possibly having kidney disease?

    I was advised by my vet that most times that the blood work show anything that that the kidney's are already functioning at about 66% - 75%. The first signs are usually the excess drinking. An ultrasound would be needed to see if there is a shrinkage. A good physical could help if there is significant shrinkage of the kidneys.

    My Kidney kitty is 8 years post dx. She has stayed in stage 2 for about 5 years now. Her only signs is the drinking an the acidic tummy vomit.

    I would continue to document and if you see the consistency in the drinking (which can be the FD as well), ask you vet.
