Some of us take the phrase, “dog days of summer” quite literally — we want to go everywhere accompanied by our beloved dogs!
While this can be great, know that the heat of summer has the potential to be hazardous to your dog’s health. One of the greatest summer dangers is dehydration.
Dogs get hot faster than people, and it’s easy for even the healthiest of dogs to become dehydrated.
AquaBottle is perfect to keep your dog safe, by providing the water he needs at any time or everywhere.According to the ASPCA a dog needs at least one ounce of water for each pound of body weight per day.
Many loving conscientious dog owners go to great lengths to ensure their dog has a healthy diet, considering brands, consulting their veterinarian, etc...
Meanwhile they may forget that an always present bowl of water is the most important part of their dogs diet.
Can't I just wait and give him water when I get home?
No, according to the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine (VMRCVM), while a dog can lose half of the fat and protein in his body and still function decently, losing even a tenth of his water can lead to fatal dehydration.
Because of the great importance of water for dogs, owners need to understand how much and what kind of water their dogs need, how frequently their pets need to drink water, and how to find clues about the state of an animal’s health from water consumption. So bring water!
