First and foremost a dog needs water! Water is essential for life and required for the body’s digestive and transportation system, and for many other functions. Water is taken into the body through drinking and eating. Insufficient intake can impair physical activity, reproduction, lactation, and growth. The daily water intake will depend on several factors like
- level of activity
- size of dog
- environmental temperature
- amount of moisture in the food
Plenty of fresh drinking water must always be provided!
