16 Jul How Much Water Does Your Pet Need? [Video]
With summer weather upon us, it’s important to keep your pets well hydrated! Generally, your pet should drink about one ounce of water for each pound of body weight.
That may need to increase by 3-4x depending on their exposure to heat, activity levels and diet.
Encourage your pet to drink more water by:
💧 Always supplying fresh water
💧 Clean the water bowl daily
💧 For pets that prefer running water, try a pet fountain
💧 Add wet food or more raw fruits and vegetables to their diet
Your pet may be dehydrated if they’re experiencing loss of appetite, reduced energy, lethargy, panting, dry eyes, nose or gums, or loss of skin elasticity.
