Keep Your Pet Hydrated

Pet owners need to be extra careful to ensure their animal friends are drinking enough water as summer draws closer. Dehydration and heat fatigue can result in health problems, even death, therefore they are major concerns during these warmer months. It is crucial to remember that providing your pet with continual access to fresh water can help prevent dehydration so you can both enjoy a summer full with fun.

Water is important

Water has an essential role in controlling body temperature and preserving organ health in addition to being a source of hydration. Lethargy, dry mouth, sunken eyes, and panting are just a few signs of dehydration that can result from not getting enough water.

Avoid dehydration

Monitoring your pet’s water consumption and giving them access to both indoor and outdoor water sources are simple ways to prevent dehydration in animals. Providing more water is imperative if your pet is more active than normal during the summer since they lose fluids through panting and sweating.

Selective drinkers

The water quality that some animals drink may be important to them. Provide clean, fresh water for your pet so they may drink enough of it. For added appeal, flavor the water with fruit slices, ice cubes, or broth. A pet water fountain may be a good addition because pets sometimes enjoy running water.
