Ok, so my puppy is insane, lol. He just wolfs down (no pun intended) any food or water he sees. The food is easy to regulate but I can't really be sure of how much water he needs, having a heavy coat and all. But if I just leave water out... he guzzles it all and pees like mad for the next hour. What should I do?
Mine does the same...and even gags after he's drank so fast. But he is a malamute and that's the only way he gets to cool down....besides panting. I have a water dish in 4 different locations for him. And yes he pees ALLOT. When I picked up my pup from his breeder, i asked how many times a day do you feed him and how much water. She told me 2 feedings a day and all the water he wants!
I was first conserned when I purchased one of those self dispensing water dishes and he'd constantly drink to hear it refill.. but after a month..he's stopped that.
He was fed this mushy meal mix from his breeder for 4 1/2 months..so when I tried to break him onto puppy chow.. he'd gag..so i mix it with water... I am cutting back on the water and sooner or later it'll be dry.. hahaha
I did read something about thyroid glands and water consumption... but if your dog has a heavy coat...I think it's better to drink and pee allot then not too. I'm not a vet..so maybe you might want to pass this situation by one.
