Why it is important to keep your dog hydrated?
The call for water will also be naturally high when the dog is hot, is feeling anxious or has been subjected to exertion in order to replace those fluids that are lost mainly from panting. As the organs start to age in senior dogs they may also require more hydration and will tend to drink more.
As for those dogs on a kibble diet water is more essential in order to help breakdown their food, which can have water content as little as 7%. For an animal whose body is made up of roughly 80% water, its essential to their health that fresh water is available at all times for them to keep their levels topped up.
