She is an energetic, healthy pup but man, she drinks tons of water!! Can anyone offer any insight on this phenomenon? :thinking:
What do you feed your dog, if I may ask?Kibble doesn’t have the water content of the food that their body was meant to eat. On the contrary, it pulls water from their system. Kibble is dehydrating, so to compensate, they drink tons of water.
I don’t feed kibble, and my dogs drink very little, because the liquids are already in the foods they eat.
I've been reading up on kibble and how thirsty it makes them. I've also been seeing on this forum that it's very common for GSD's to drink a lot of water. This is all a learning process for me as this is my first GSD but I'm excited to learn all I can. :nerd:My guy drinks a ton of water, it is crazy how much water he drinks, never seen anything like it. I think he values his water as much as his food. Begs at the fridge water and ice dispenser.
We feed 2/3 kibble 1/3 raw. The store bought "smoked" meat bones (that make a mess BTW) make his really thirsty. I think it's all normal.
Hans is 7 and has autoimmune issues, so he eats boiled grass fed beef with pumpkin, bone meal, and sardines.What do you feed your dog, if I may ask?
If that is the case, I would suggest not feeding them. Dogs can’t tolerate a lot of salt.
