Keeping your Pet Hydrated During the Hot Months

Temperatures are continuing to rise in Canada as the summer is in full bloom and staying well hydrated should be a priority for all. Including pet owners, who also have to ensure that furry family members are hydrated at all times. No matter how calm they are, cats require 300ml of water daily and dogs between 600ml and 2,500ml of water depending on their size, as pet water requirements are approximately 70ml per kilogram body weight.

Keeping your Pet Hydrated During the Hot Months

Recognizing the signs of dehydration in our pets is important and some common signs of dehydration to watch for are sunken eyes, decreased skin elasticity, loss of appetite and depression.

Thankfully PetSafe® Brand offers a range of products specifically designed to help Canadians keep their pets hydrated. Their water fountains are convenient and provide fresh, filtered water for your pet. Starting at $79.99, you can find a water fountain solution to match your needs.

    Today I watched a video on FB of a vet who tested out sitting in a car in hot weather with all the windows cracked open. It was amazing how hot it got despite the windows being cracked open. So please don’t leave your pets in the car when it’s hot.

    My dog generally drinks enough water but these fountains can be really helpful for some pets.

    My daughter has a dog, albeit a small one but this might be fun for Sasha too.

    I do have a dog at home, and I do make sure she is well hydrated. I am amazed at the amount of water she drinks. We have bowls both inside and outside and refill both a couple of times a day. My husband likes the idea of a fountain, but I prefer the bowl still.
