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 (www.thermopet.com). 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.
