not drinking enough water

Species: dog | Category: nutrition | Submitted: 14 April 2007 10:02AM | viewed 13533 times
Q Denise asks:

How can I get my dog to drink more water? He has been sick lately. I have taken him to the vet but I need to monitor his water intake. Is there something I can do to enhance his water intake?

Q Our vet says: The only thing you can really do yourself is to feed a portion of his food wet. You could add a little water to his biscuits or any meat you give him so that he takes in more water with his food. If he becomes dehydrated you will need to take him along to your vet for fluids to be given. Please discuss this with your vet first because I am not sure what is wrong with your dog, so just make sure it is OK for you to do this.
