4 Ways to Keep Your Pets Hydrated This Summer
With summer in full effect, our furry friends want to enjoy the outdoors just as much as we do! However, an outdoor adventure in the summer heat can quickly become uncomfortable for our pets. Whether it’s a walk in the park, a trip to the beach or fun at the summer fair, it’s important to keep ourselves and our pets hydrated during the hottest and sunniest days. Here are a few tips for keeping your pets safe and hydrated this summer.
Add Water to Their Food
Adding a small amount of Absopure’s Purified Drinking Water to your pet’s food is a simple way to increase your pet’s daily water intake. This hydrating addition creates a new, delicious twist to your pet’s favorite meal that they are sure to love. Plus, water helps kibble release its natural aroma and stimulate your pet’s appetite.
Set Up a Shady Spot
Although exercising your pet regularly is great for their health, too much time in the sun can be exhausting. A sip of water and a relaxing break in a shady area is exactly what they need to cool down. Set up a canopy tent or create a makeshift shelter for your pet to give them a break from the sunshine and a chance to regain their energy.
Pack a Portable Water Dish
Pets can become thirsty more quickly in the summer months when the temperature rises. So if you and your pet are on the go, consider packing a portable water dish. Fill it up with Absopure’s refreshing All-Natural Spring Water before heading outdoors, and ensure your pet stays hydrated and cool throughout the day’s adventures.
Properly Groom Your Pet
Your pet’s hair not only keeps them warm in the winter but also protects them from heat and excessive sun exposure. Avoid shaving your pet’s coat, and stick to trimming no shorter than an inch for increased protection from the sun. Brush your pet’s coat regularly to remove loose hair and keep them cool and comfortable between trips to the groomer.
In addition to following these tips and preparing for hot weather, make sure to watch out for signs of dehydration such as loss of energy, excessive panting and dry eyes. A good rule of thumb is: if it’s too hot for you, it’s too hot for your pet.
