Subject: Re: Drinking too much water?

Am not sure how much too much drinking is, but read in the FML that
drinking alot of water could mean kidney failure and there is no
cure for this. My suggestion would be to ask your vet how much is too
much. Most good vets will answer your questions over the phone for
free, at least this is whats been told to me. You might also check
BIGs archives for kidney failure.
