Wellness Wednesday: Water


Have you or your humans ever wondered how much water you are supposed to drink? We are here to help! A good general rule is that a pup should drink 0.5-1.0 ounces of water for each pound of body weight. If you are very active you probably are closer to the top end of this range. If you lounge in bed all day like us you are probably on the low end. Always pay attention to changes in water consumption. Drinking too much water can be a sign of liver or kidney issues. If your pup is drinking (and peeing) more than usual you should contact your vet as soon as possible to figure out what is going on.
