Is your doggie drinking water?

Just like humans most pets don't like drinking water or they might just simply forget. They usually like fresh water so adding a couple of ice cubes to the water might help and also in order to provide a better taste try giving them some filtered water. If your doggie is very sick try giving him/her some beef or chicken broth. They love how it tastes. Dogs should drink 1/2 to 1 ounce of water per pound of body weight per day. Every time you take your dogs for a walk take some water with you. You should contact your Vet if your dog is under or over drinking. That could be a sign of illness. Beware of contaminated water. There is a parasite called Giardia found in a ponds, lakes, and puddles. This disease is called beaver fever and it affects humans and pets. Some symptoms are vomiting, diarrhea, and low grade fever*. This parasite robs the intestines of essential nutrients during digestion. It can also cause allergies. Consult your Vet and ask about the new vaccine to treat this condition.
