You know how thirsty YOU can get at times, this also happens with your pet...and more often. It is important that you keep a bowl of FRESH water down for your pet at all times...both in the house and outside (if your pet is outside over ANY period of time). Cats and dogs can develop kidney problems easier that humans, so be SURE to check the water bowl (a stainless steel mixing bowl is great for indoors; plastic for outdoors.) during the day and first thing in the morning and before retiring.
