I wanted to add a bit more information...
Until you can get her to her veterinarian, it may help her to feel more comfortable today if you can really encourage her to drink A LOT. This will help to flush out her bladder, making her urine more dilute.
There are a number of things you can do to increase water consumption.
You can mix a bit of food in with water to make a soup - that way your dog may be enticed to drink more.
You can make "hot-dog soup." To do this, take one hot dog and cut it into a dozen small pieces. Put them in 2 cups of water and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Take off the heat, and allow to cool. Remove the hot dog pieces, and offer the dog the water.
I suggest opening a can of tuna *in water* and offering the liquid diluted with water 50:50.
Any clear fluids are fine to give - such as apple juice, gatorade, pedialyte. Dilute all of them 50:50 with water.
You could try Lactose Free milk (Lactaid is the Canadian brand ), diluted with water.
Offer some canned dog food, and mix it with water to make a gravy to pour over her dry food.
Other things you can do to encourage a dog to drink are:
- offer water from a very wide flat bowl
- If she likes dripping water, leave a tap.
- Offer bottled water and see if she prefers it.
- Offer chicken broth or beef broth, diluted 50:50
- See if she likes water with an ice cube in it.
- See if she likes it out of a cup or pasta bowl.
- You could try getting some human baby food in meat flavours (check that there are no onions or garlic in the ingredients) and mix that with warm water and offer that as a "soup" for her to drink. Beech Nut makes a line of baby food that has nothing but meat (beef, chicken, turkey or veal) in it.
Here's a link:
If you cannot find this, you could find another meat baby food - just read the label carefully to be sure there are no onions, onion powder, garlic, or garlic powder in it (as these are toxic to dogs)
Cook a chicken breast and put it in the blender with enough water to turn it into baby-food consistency. Make it into a soup.
I hope that this helps! :-) If you have more questions, just click on reply!
