During the summer months, we all are finding ways to beat the unbearable heat! A summer special that’s getting quite popular is coconut water! While we get delivered fresh coconut water, our furry ones eye us from the corner. Felines just get fascinated by the slightest change in their surroundings. There are high chances that your feline is going to creep up to you while you’re sipping coconut water “straight outta straw”. But can they drink it? Well it’s best that you check with your veterinarian but here’s why it could be a great summer (re)treat for your furry one!
Coconut water builds a kitten’s immunity and safeguards them from any health issues. They also like the taste of coconut water. It acts as a great source of carbohydrates! Coconut water is harmless and extremely beneficial for pets suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. If your furry one has tummy troubles this is a great way to ease any aches or bloating. As we’re always advised to have coconut water because it is rich in vitamins and minerals, it also enhances a feline’s coat.
Although as each one’s temperament and diet varies, you have to use a try and test method if you’re introducing a new element to his or her diet. Some may react very well some not so well. Hence a small portion of coconut water can make for an occasional summer special for your feline. Don’t forget that while its packed with all things good, the sugar content is at an all-time high! Too much of anything ain’t good for the body!
If fed in excess, coconut water could induce kidney related health issues and can also cause hyperkalemia. Hence it is a must to discuss what will work best for your kitty before he or she starts meow “I’m love in with the coco!”
