How much water does my pet need?

“Most pet parents are unaware of how much water their pet needs on a daily basis,” said Randy Boyd, CEO and Founder of PetSafe. “On average, dogs need one ounce of water per pound of body weight.”

Symptoms of dehydration in pets include sunken eyes, lethargy, loss of appetite, dry mouth or depression. If pet owners believe their pet may be dehydrated, PetSafe encourages them to take the following steps:

1. Perform a skin test
2. Take your pet to the veterinarian immediately
3. Provide fresh, clean water daily
4. Monitor your pet’s water intake, especially in the hot summer months
