I don't think my English Springer Spaniel is drinking enough!

How do I drink more?

How do I drink more?

Its starting to get warmer and warmer as the summer months close in on us and I feel my English Springer Spaniel Algie is not drinking enough.


He always has water available to him and I change it every day to encourage him, but I rarely see him drinking and I am worried that it may have an impact on his kidneys and his overall health.

Do you have any advice on getting him to drink healthier quantities of water?

By the way, what a great site, I love it and have sent it to all my Springer Spaniel Friends.

Springer not drinking
by: Jack Dusty

After running at least 10 mile over 2 days my springer never drank. I gave him neat milk as an emergency measure he drank the lot.Is there a reason he stopped drinking?

Try Milky water
by: Anna

Hi Brian
I have had this problem with a previous Springer, Harry.

Try adding milk to his water and try and make him think its a real treat. This is usually how I get enough liquid into my Springers.

If that doesn't work, some dogs only like to drink from running water sources and you can get dog bowls that flow the water for them.

Otherwise if it still comtinues, speak to your vet, you are right to be worried about kidney problems so keep an eye on their fluid intake.
