Tips To Encourage your Cat to Drink More Water

Water is one of the basic essential nutrients, and adequate water intake is very important for your pet’s health and wellbeing. Many cats are suffering from chronic mild dehydration as a result of inadequate water intake for a considerable period of time. Here are some ways to encourage your pet cat to drink water and stay adequately hydrated:

  • Sprinkle a little water on top of canned food before offering it to your pet. But if your kitty is on a kibble diet, avoid adding water because it can lead to rapid deterioration of the pet food.

  • For your pet’s drinking water, use a water bowl made of glass or stainless steel. Plastic water bowls often retain odors that can leave a distinct taste in water that cats may find offensive.

  • Make sure your pet has easy access to fresh and clean drinking water every day.

  • Filtered water is preferred over tap water because the latter is heavily chlorinated or may contain a high amount of minerals.
