Tips To Encourage Older Cats To Drink More Water

Cats are known for being finicky when it comes to water intake. Unfortunately, this can increase their risks of developing serious health issues down the road. Many senior cats suffer from chronic renal disease as a result of chronic low-grade dehydration. Many cat parents find it a challenge to get their pets to drink enough water, more so in senior cats that don’t move around as much because of age-related problems. Fortunately, there are ways to increase your pet’s water intake. One of these is to give canned pet food. Compared to kibbles canned food contains more water or moisture content (60-70%). Kibbles have only about 10% water. To prevent dental problems, make sure to brush your pet’s teeth every day. Or you may choose to mix both kibble and canned pet food so your pet can enjoy both their benefits. 

A sudden change in your pet’s water intake or urination habits should require an appointment with your vet clinic Ashburn, VA.
