It's that time of the year when you need to think
Hydrating your dog is something so simple but it's actually so overlooked and most people don't think about hydrating when it comes to meal times.
If your dog is eating a kibble diet, they are more prone to dehydration. This is because the dry kibble requires moisture for digestion. When your dog is not adequately hydrated, the body pulls water from the internal organs to digest the kibble and this can lead to the state of mild dehydration. Even if they are drinking throughout the day, the digestion process pulls water from their system after eating.
One of the best and easiest thing you can do as a kibble feeder is HYDRATE YOUR DOGS FOOD!
Adding water to kibble softens it for digestion and hydrates your dog's body systems.
Great options to hydrate kibble include
Filtered Water
Coconut Water
Bone Broth
Lambs Milk
Decaffeinated Green Tea (aids in cancer prevention)
Quick Tip - you can freeze all of the above in trays or silicone molds and then pop out a cube or two and melt with hot water at meal time!
*Always give your dog access to fresh water at all times
*Always rest your dog after eating any meal. Never exercise your dog immediately after eating due to risk of bloat
