How Can I Prevent Dehydration In My Pets?

 

  • Provide clean water at all times, and change it frequently to ensure freshness. Also, don’t forget to wash your dog’s or cat’s water bowl every day to prevent bacteria from forming.
  • Monitor your cat’s or dog’s  water intake. Generally, a pet needs at least one ounce of water for each pound of body weight per day. If your pet is not drinking an adequate amount of water, seek veterinary advice. Monitoring water intake is especially important if they’re recovering from diarrhea, vomiting or other illnesses.
  • Purchase a water bowl with a weighted bottom to prevent your dog or cat from knocking it over.
  • Bring extra water when you’re traveling or exercising with your pet.
  • If you notice your pet is drinking less than usual, check their mouth for sores or other foreign objects.
  • Avoid chaining a dog outside, since he may get tangled up, preventing them from accessing their water bowl.
  • Keep your toilet lid closed to interrupt your pet’s efforts to turn the bowl, which can be a source of bacteria, into a water fountain.
