Is Your Cat Drinking Enough Water?

Just like you, your cat needs to stay hydrated to stay healthy. If he or she passes on water, for whatever reason, this can lead to dehydration and he or she can face a range of health issues. If you’re concerned about your cat’s water intake, talk to your veterinarian to see if your cat’s drinking habits are normal.

One easy way to discover your cat might not be drinking enough water is to pay close attention to his or her habits. If you notice that you seem to be refilling the water bowl less and less, talk to your veterinarian to see if an underlying issue could be to blame. If your cat is panting frequently, he or she may not be getting enough water to adequately manage his or her body temperature. Inelastic skin and dull, thinning hair are also signs of dehydration.
