Both of mine drink a lot of water, but some days more than others. The amount they drink depends on their diet, exercise, weather, etc. Also, if they drink excessive amounts of water it could indicate a health problem. If you are concerned with how much Dixie is drinking you should consult a veterinarian.

One of mine drinks what I would consider the normal amount of water but my Lily I call "the camel". I have to trick her into drinking more water. My pups are on a raw diet thank goodness so it contains a lot more water than dry food but I still add water to Lily's bowl. The hubs says leaver her alone that she will drink when she feels the need but I don't think HE drinks enough water either, LOL.

Your right Gigi, most of us dont drink enough. I add water to Hope's food, becasue she wasnt drinking enough.
Water consumption is certainly based a lot on how much exercise they are getting and how hot the weather is. It can also be the food she is eating making her thirsty. Does she have free access to water at all times?? Just some thoughts
