The last couple of days Riffy has been drinking huge amounts. Should I get his glucose done?

If it is abnormal for him to be drinking a lot I would get him checked out.

It could be a sign of diabeties or a few other things so I'd pop him along to the vets to be on the safe side.

Does he seem ok in himself - eating, pooping etc as normal?

Absolutely fine with everything else. Riffy always drinks the most but I just thought he had had more recently.

I had a chat with Roger last night and he asked about Riffy's other habits etc and I said Riffy was very well otherwise. Roger is not worried because Riff has always been so healthy. Of course, since my chat with Roger Riffy has hardly had anything to drink!
