Common Symptoms of Dehydration

Common Symptoms of Dehydration

As the heat of the summer continues to climb, it’s obvious why July is National Pet Hydration Month. This makes it more important than ever to remember the common symptoms of dehydration in our pets (courtesy of Henry Schein Animal Health):

  • Loss of appetite
  • Reduced energy levels
  • Lethargy
  • Panting
  • Sunken, dry-looking eyes
  • Dry nose and gums
  • Loss of skin elasticity

The last symptom (loss of skin elasticity) can be determined by gently pinching your pet’s skin between your thumb and forefinger. Does the skin spring back into position (well hydrated) or does it slowly return into place (dehydrated)? If you are concerned, be sure to have your pet checked by a veterinarian. 

Prevention is always the best medicine! In addition to the tips we shared in our last Pet Hydration Month blog post, be sure to:

  1. Provide a fresh supply of water. A clean supply is always more appealing.
  2. Wash water bowls daily to prevent bacteria growth. 
  3. Does your pet prefer moving water? Consider a pet fountain.
  4. Supplement with Primalvore Bone Broth for added water intake.

It’s the heart of the Summer when Primalvore Pups & their Families are spending more time outdoors. Many of those outdoor activities involve water, whether they are visiting the beach, going for a hike along a lake or stream, or trips to the local park with a pond. When the days are hot, it’s natural to be attracted to water to cool off and to play.

While all outdoor activities are associated with some risk, the Primalvore team wants to draw your attention to a risk that is very serious this time of year...
