Pet Tip

Dogs and Cats that Drink Too Much Water – Pet tip 240

Water is the elixir of life and it is essential to all living things. Our pets need to have access to water at all times and their water bowls should be filled with fresh water every single day. When our pets don’t get enough water dehydration can occur. Sometimes though, our pets drink too much water and although we know that water is good for our pets, too much is too much. Serious health problems can occur when our pets drink too much water. Sometimes the reason they drink so much stems from psychological or behavioural problems; other times the reason is medical. Either way, drinking too much water is dangerous for pets.

When a pet drinks too much water, its urinary system is also affected. What goes in must come out so thirst and urination are naturally linked.

Renny was a very good dog.  He died today, and i am in tears as i am writing this.  He had a heart problem and was given a diuretic and heart medicine, but what i didn't know (and the vet didn't tell me) was that they can't be given together at the same time, or it will cause temporary kidney falure.  But then he had sprained his leg, and gave him an anti-inflamatory which lowers kidney fuction, so that basically caused his kidneys to give out.  we had to put him to sleep.  He lived a good life of 17 years (much longer then usual).  he was such a nice dog, and i will never forget him.  I will always remember the good times, and all the fun we had together.  I hope one day we will meet again.
