Water is vital to maintaining your four-legged family member’s body and mind, but many dogs don’t get enough water, making dehydration a common and potentially dangerous condition. Keeping your four-legged family member hydrated helps them regulate their body temperature, keep their energy levels up, and recover from physical activity quicker. It allows vital organs to keep doing their job, promotes urinary tract health, supports digestion, and keeps their metabolism working properly.
Also, remember that dogs and humans do NOT have the same hydration and electrolyte needs. Dogs don’t sweat, they pant. That panting results in stored water leaving their body. With all that fur, it’s no wonder why dogs get overheated so much quicker than humans, especially when it’s hot out.
Here are some easy ways to keep them hydrated during the warm weather ahead.
