What is age of your dog. Many conditions in dogs can cause increased thirst and frequent urination. Among them diabetes is major one. Your dog needs to be evaluated for the following conditions.
  1. Diabetes
  2. Pyometra
  3. Lead poisoning
  4. Addison disease
  5. Cushing's disease
  6. Kidney failure
  7. Liver disease
  8. High blood calcium
  9. Pituitary gland problem
So, take your dog to vet for differential diagnosis and treatment.

Answer no. 1 is very good and covers a lot of possible problems but your dog needs a trip to the vet, I don't think Cushing,s  is the problem. It sounds very much like the onset of diabetes. However it may be Addisons disease. A full work up of the dog's endrocrine system would be a good thing to check. It has most of the symptoms you have described. Like Cushing's it a disease of the pituitary gland that affects the adrenal glands. The pituitary gland is the boss of the whole hormone system. The pancreas controls insulin production and the enzymes that help digest food. A problem there is a big one and a ultra sound can help find it. I wish you good luck.
