Staying hydrated in the heat

We aren’t the only ones who can become dehydrated in the heat. Although your dog loves the outdoors, it’s very important to make sure they have access to water at all times. Be on the lookout for these signs of dehydration.

  1. Dry Nose- a dog’s nose should be wet and cold if healthy.
  2. Loss of Appetite- be aware if your dog is not eating normally.
  3. Sunken Eyes- they might not be tired, but dehydrated!
  4. Excessive Panting- panting is normal, especially in the heat, but if it doesn’t stop or slow down this can be a warning sign.

We don’t want to be dehydrated and we don’t want our dogs to be either. The Institute of Pet Nutrition has a collapsible bowl product that comes in two different colors. Keeping this bowl handy can make drinking water much easier on the go!
