One of the best parts about summer is that you get to spend more time outside with your canine companion since the days are longer. However, we need to keep in mind that the temperatures can become severe. Here are some tips to make sure your dog does not get dehydrated or suffer from heat exhaustion.
- Water, Water, Water. Makes sure your dog has water available at all times. Fresh, cool water is enticing to a dog, which means he may drink it pretty fast. It’s important that you monitor his water intake during the day often.
- Always carry water when going outside. Even if your walk is 15-20 minutes, make sure your dog has water available. Bring a water bottle or go to a place with a water fountain. Remember to stop often for water breaks.
- Hydrate with wet food. Just like us, cats and dogs need a lot of water to stay healthy. Their bodies are made of 75% water, yet they rarely drink enough of it to support excellent hydration and organ function. That’s why HALO recommends that at least 25-50% of their daily calories come from wet food.
- Give ice cubes as treats. Many dogs like to hear the crunching of the ice so giving them some ice cubes can be helpful. Dropping them in the bowl to keep water cool can help your dog drink more water during the day as well.
