My 9 year old Collie [69lbs] is perfectly healthy but I have noticed that he drinks quite a bit of water. Probably a quart and a half per day. Since his water bowl is in our bedroom I can count the number of times he laps the water after my wife feeds him in the morning. Presently that tops out at about 200. Normally since he is so healthy I wouldn't worry but when dropping him at the kennel recently the subject was brought up and the kennel owner said to be careful with him drinking too much water after feeding which could lead to bloat. Is this a real concern in my case? Is there any reason to restrict his water supply for a time after his meal?
