Why is my dog drinking so much water?

Your dog could be drinking a lot of water for a number of reason, most are nothing to worry about. Here are the main causes of your dog drinking excessive water.

  • Eating salty foods - Consuming human table scraps like sausages, fried chicken, and chips can cause dogs to get really thirsty.

  • Excessive indoor/outdoor play - Excercise leaves both humans and canines very thirsty.

  • It is trying to pass a blockage - At times, a dog may be attempting to pass something large it ingested. Your dog may have a partial blockage if your dog is drinking but not eating.
