Do you know that as much as 80 percent of a pet’s body is water, compared to 55 to 60 percent in humans?
General rule for daily water consumption is one ounce of water per pound of body weight daily. If you are concerned about whether or not dog pet drinks enough, consider these tips:
1) Always stock a fresh supply. You don’t like floaters in your cup. While pets may not be quite as picky, a clean supply is always more appealing.
2)Clean the water bowl. A clean bowl is equally as important as fresh water. Wash water bowls daily to prevent bacteria growth.
3)Keep it moving. Do you have a pet that likes to drink from the faucet? For pets that prefer moving water, pet fountains keep water circulating and your taps safely shut off! If you do opt for a water fountain, don’t forget to change the filter and clean per the manufacturer’s instructions.
4)Consider adding wet food or supplementing with fresh raw fruits or vegetables for added water intake. *credit to HenryScheinVet.com & image from mydoglikes
