unsure of pregnancy
My yorkie is very bloated and is drinking huge amounts of water which is quickly passed again as urine.

It is almost certain that your yorkie has a condition know as a pyometra. This is an accumulation of discharge within the uterus. It is potentially very serious as it causes general toxin accumulation within the body which is why she is drinking more to try and flush these toxins away. You should take her to a vet as soon as possible. She will almost certainly need to have her uterus and ovaries removed. sometimes this condition can occur at the same time as diabetes so it is worthy checking this out prior to any anaesthetic. This condition can take a turn for the worse at any time resulting in an extremely sick dog very rapidly so again I emphasise vet now.
