My dog is drinking less water since switching to raw - is this normal?
About 50% of an animal’s water requirement comes from their food intake – food cells are 70% moisture and this is absorbed easily. Poppy’s Picnic fresh, raw dog food is naturally moist so your dog's daily water intake of water may naturally decrease.
Did you know that to make processed food more tasty and appealing to our dogs, a lof of salt would need to be added - which would increase thirst. Poppy’s Picnic adds NO salt to our recipes.
If you are not feeding a 100% fresh, raw diet and using our Metaballs for example to supplement and boost a kibble diet, then the amount of water your dog drinks may not change so noticeably.
