Encouraging Your Pet To Drink Water

  1. Try giving water in different types of bowls, cups, mugs and even saucers and shallow plates. Sometimes cats prefer drinking from shallow bowls.
  2. Try adding a small amount of low sodium tuna juice or chicken or beef stock to the water.
  3. Try adding ice cubes into the water bowl- some pets prefer very cold water.
  4. Water fountains for pets can be attractive to them because they provided oxygenated, free flowing water.
  5. Offer water from a dripping tap- some cats love to lick water from the tap.
  6. Add a glass of water on top of a kitchen or bathroom counter.
  7. Offer plain ice cubes or ice cubes with cooked frozen meat or vegetables or soup stock mixed in.
  8. Offer a veterinary recommended canned food to your pet’s daily meals.
  9. Dogs are omnivores, so offering safe fruit and vegetables such as carrots, apples, green beans, pumpkin to your dog is a great way of increasing moisture in their diet. Vegetables and fruits are high in water content. Cats cannot tolerate vegetables or fruits in large quantities as they are carnivores.
