shes old has dementia (might cause her to drink more then she needs) and got lots of teeth pulled (needs soft food) out and she has urinary tract infection (needs to drink lots of water) but she might be ok with the UTI but i cant know cause its hard to get her to a vet to do blood tests and she slips on the floor - so i put a rug and she pees on the rug several times a day

so its important that i understand how much does the water in the food "count" - maybe i will put the water just before the walk outside - and not all day plus its good to know - for instance there are rare days when she dosnt drink at all - so should i try to make her drink or could i be calm that she got all the water from the food
Please send merit to my dog named Mika who has passed away - thanks in advance

hi purple planet
sorry to hear about your dogs poor health
even the occasional times i give my dogs canned food or wet their nuts, they still like to drink water after, if only to aid digestion and clean their mouth.

Why not go to the veterinarian and ask them? And if that vet doesn't give you a satisfying solution get a 2nd or even 3rd opinion. The professionals will know better than any of us non-veterinarians.

water is water .

whether its rice or dog nuts the water is inherent in them if put there.

the only issue would be with the digestibility of the food and oral hygiene.

try a dog owner forum for more responses would be my advise

good luck

This is the big problem by sharing the exact problem - it has it advantages but this thread it didnt show any usually it dosnt

a few points -

1 - my dog has fresh water all the time ! but i want just to give her water maybe half an hour before the walk - each day i walk her 8 times !! thats plus the 1 liter of water she might get from the food

2 - i go to the vet many times

3- no decision is made based on this thread alone just wanted to gain some knowledge - even to go ask the vet about it would be helpful with some pre-known knowledge from my behalf -

(though the 2 vets next to me usually knows less then i do about my dog and did some mistakes which i thought were mistakes and found out im correct)

like i said there are many many many factors in this i didnt mention even 1/10 of it - belive me i care for my dog a lot - she has lots of problems - i went to many different vets - it would be very complicated and i might say not possible for me to explain every detail - but i wouldnt do anything radical - it will be nice to get some knowledge from this thread even though it does seem like this thread is lost shamefully

So it would be a great help to me/my dog/whatever situation that you can help me with this question - and of course i would ask in other places but it would be nice to get some knowledge from here - and again the situation is VERY complicated and its not like you would tell me yeah food absorbs water can be counted as somesource of water - and tomorrow my dog wont get water - most chaces are that my dog gets to much water and there are many reasons why she would drink more than she needs - so would just be helpful to get extra info and opinions about the question

this is also not only about her water intake but about many other issues - like should i take her out for a walk if she didnt drink at all since the last walk but ate lots of food

its always good to recommend a dr in health forum threads - even more important to advice to see a vet when there is an animal involved - but not in this case
