In some cases excessive thirst may be a sign of an organ disease. For example, Kidney disease; diabetes; or cushings diease. In less severe cases your dog may just have psychogenic polydipsia, which is just an increase in thirst for no medical reason. You should probably take her to the vet though to rule out a serious illness.
