The importance of keeping your dog hydrated
Balanced nutrition is not the only important part of keeping your pet healthy. Water is also vital to your pet’s health and is the main component of healthy, living cells in the body. Without it, your pet’s body will not be able to function properly and he may even become dehydrated.
The purpose of water for pets is to carry important nutrients into and out of the cells of the body, aiding in digestion and the absorption of nutrients. It also regulates body temperature, lubricates joints, improves cognitive function, and cushions the brain and spinal cord. Every important bodily function requires water.
When dehydrated, the body draws water out of the cells, resulting in muscle dysfunction and electrolyte imbalance. Organ failure and death can follow if dehydration is not treated immediately.
