Maggie, our Catahoula, had some discharge from her, um, female area this weekend. She was drinking lots of water last week and I chalked it up to the heat but after the discharge I called our vet. They asked us to drop off a urine specimen since she was otherwise fine (no loss of apetite or energy). I figured certain she had a UTI.
Well, there was no white blood cells but her sugar was high. So I took her in late this afternoon to get blood drawn. He (the vet) is leaning towards diabetes but of course won't know until the blood work comes back. Other possibilities include Cushing's and Addison's (both of which make diabetes sound like a cake walk).
The discharge - he says doesn't fit into any scenario and may just have been irritation.
One of the nurses I work with (a fellow dog lover) said maybe it was just the "thing" that needed to happen to get her diagnosed.
Anyway - keep Maggie in your thoughts.
:(

update

I am still waiting on the blood test results but form what I read it sounds more and more like Cushing's disease. I will post a seperate thread but wanted to update this one.
