Knox was doing this. He ended up having Giardia.

The vet didn't check for that...I will call tomorrow and see if we can run for that.

And yeah, we only increased because he wasn't holding weight. (His bones were sticking out on much less, but maybe he was just lanky.) He is very active and 4 cups keeps him just right, but I'll lower it again and see.

Check for giardia first. I'm putting my money on that right now.

Would Giardiasis also cause him to want to drink a lot? He drinks as much as we will let him. Once when he was unsupervised, he drank a whole 5 gallon bowl and was bloated and peeing for hours...so we always have to stop him or he will drink and drink.

Is it possible? Sure. Could he be a dog that just drinks til he barfs? Sure! Check the poo... solve that problem and see what comes of it

I'll take him tomorrow.

Because like, right now, he just peed AND pooped in his kennel. He hasn't had anything to eat/drink in the last 6 hours, and has been taken out every two hours since he ate/drank last and has gone to the bathroom each time.

If you leave him uncrated for the night does he still have accidents?

I couldn't tell you for sure because we haven't tried it since we started crating him when we got him, but I would say yes because he still has accidents in the house sometimes.

If parasites are ruled out I would leave him out of the crate for the night for the heck of it.

That's not an option. If he is doing that in his crate, I'm not going to risk him doing that around my house. I'm not just going to volunteer my floor to be used as a toilet, lol.
