What can I do to encourage my cat to drink more water?

How do I keep my kitty hydrated? What should I do if I think my cat is not drinking enough?

Water is essential to your cat’s health and can even be instrumental in helping prevent some severe health issues such as Feline Urological Syndrome.

- You can encourage your kitty to stay hydrated by sprinkling a little water on top of your pet’s canned food.

- Use glass or stainless steel water bowls since plastic bowls leave a taste that cats don’t like. Always make sure that the water is fresh and clean so refresh your cat’s water bowl daily.

- Use filtered water instead of tap water since the latter can be heavily chlorinated or have too high a concentration of minerals.

It’s very important to pay attention to your cat’s “normal” water consumption. It’s time for a trip to your local vet if you notice excessive changes in your cat’s daily water intake.
