Tips For Water Bowls & Bottles:
- The amount of water your dog drinks can be an indicator of an underlying illness. Dogs with pancreatitis, parvovirus, or leptospirosis tend not to drink much water, but a brewing bladder infection, other types of infection, or a metabolic problem such as Cushing's disease, and diabetes can cause excessive thirst and water consumption.
- Check your dog’s gums to determine if they are getting enough water. Moist, slick gums indicate a good level of hydration; dry or sticky gums mean your pet’s body needs more water.
