Increased thirst

Print E-mail

If you feel your dog or cat has recently started to drink more water than normal, it is important to consult your veterinarian. There are many different causes of increased thirst, including kidney failure, liver disease, disorders of the brain, behavioral reasons and other causes. Generally, the veterinarian will start with blood and urine tests. It is also useful to actually measure and record how much water your pet is drinking at home (however this can be difficult to do if there is more than one animal in the house).
