Can dogs drink distilled water?

I have 2 cats who drink distilled water from a bottle. I do not give it to them in small amounts. Should I be concerned about it causing problems? What is the cause for their not drinking it?

ANSWER:

Answer:

Cats do not drink water with alcohol in it. Cats prefer to drink water that is clean with only clean water, as they do not need vitamin C and the minerals are also in clean water. Water that has minerals and is mineralized is what they prefer. I would not give alcohol to them, however, as it may make them gassy, and they will try to get rid of that gassy by eating something else. And if your cat eats too much or too often, they can get kidney problems.

I would say that it's up to you. You could be doing them a favor, but you could be killing them. We don't know what's going on. If they are drinking too much water and not drinking enough then there's your problem. You could cut down on the amount of water they're drinking or cut off completely. If they are not drinking at all then it's time to figure out what the problem is. It could be too hot, too cold, too little or too much water. Maybe the water they are drinking is too salty. Your going to have to figure out what the problem is, then figure out how to fix it.

QUESTION:

what's the best treatment for canker sores?

Ok, I have 2 dogs that were getting canker sores in their mouths. I took them to the vet and told them the sores came from a tooth abscess and he told me that if I used my cotton balls to get a little out of them, then put it under the dogs tongue and they would stop getting the sores. Well this works fine except he also says when it’s this bad you put it under your dogs mouth and you put a wet piece of toilet paper on it so the canker sores would not get to big. If your dog is acting normal it means he is ok. I’m wondering what’s the best way to get rid of this when it’s to bad?

ANSWER:

I am not sure what is in the toothpaste that you use. I have three dogs, 1 at a time, and I use the S.O.S. paste that you can get at the pet store. It gets rid of the sores. My boys LOVE this stuff. You have to put it on the whole place where the sore is. I have 3 cats, and they seem to love it as well. Hope that helps, Barb

QUESTION:

I have a 13 week old puppy who has just started to eat solids and is also teething! I need to know what to feed her. My vet sd she needs to start on a whole food diet with no byproducts but i want to know which foods would be best?

ANSWER:

First of all my puppy is just starting to eat on solids. And since she has not started teething yet, the best food to start her on is a senior dog food. This is called senior dog food because the senior dogs usually get this type of food because they are too old to chew their food correctly, that’s why they started to get the sores in their mouth.

Try the Purina senior dry dog food. This is the perfect type of food to start your puppy off with, because the senior dogs really do not get any type of byproducts or fillers, that is why they get sores in their mouth. As the puppy progresses with her diet, the food can be made better and better by the puppy as she grows, so that you can start to feed more of the “healthy” things to your puppy.

QUESTION:

What is the best product to control the oiliness in my dogs fur? I have 2 dachshunds that are 4 months old and very oil and sticky. Their coats are falling out and they get oily on their nose. I tried to put oil on their coat but it just comes right back. I was wondering if there is anything that will really help?

ANSWER:

Have you tried to put hr conditioner on the oil, or just water? Some may say that conditioner will give them that added extra moisturizing they need in their fur. Also, can you make sure that they are getting enough water? My dachshunds LOVE their water bowls, but you may need to do a little investigating to make sure they are getting all the water they need. Another solution would be to go to a hr conditioner that is specifically designed for dachshunds. Some great brands that I have used on my dachshunds are

NuBits Naturals

Penny Paws, they have a great organic, natural conditioner. It is specially formulated for dogs. I would also recommend using their Shampoo and Conditioner.

QUESTION:

How do you stop the shedding that is happening? My puppy sheds so much it doesn’t just make the environment dirty, it really messes up my house with dog hr on everything.

ANSWER:

There are a few things you can do to stop this type of behavior in your puppy.

The first thing you want to do is keep him indoors, he will never out grow the desire to shed. He will eventually reach the age where he will out grow the desire to shed (I know one puppy that was around 4 yrs old) if he is kept inside the shedding period will be much less and the hr will be softer. This is also great for the environment because your house will stay cleaner, and you won’t have to deal with dog hr. Also it is very important that you keep an eye on him and keep his environment controlled (read my article about the dog house here) so that he doesn’t make himself comfortable on the furniture.

You can try brushing his hr as often as you would like, I find that it is best to brush him at night after he has had his dinner, which is about every 2-3 hours. But that is if your puppy has been eating well. It might not be necessary every 2-3 hours, just as often as needed, but I find that is the best way to go. I also find that the sooner you get started brushing your puppy, the easier it is to keep up with. Brush the hr from his body on the underside, you will not make any difference if you brush him anywhere else.

Also you can use a scissor type or a electric corded brush. I have used both and find the scissor one easier for me because the wire does not need to be bent in a certn shape to get the job done.

I am sure there are many other ways to stop your dog from shedding, you just have to be patient and be willing to devote some time to your puppy. My puppy is 2 1/2 yrs old now, and I have noticed the difference in the shedding after being home with me for just over a month now.
