Pet Advice — Remember water for your pets


These days It seems like everyone you see is carrying a water bottle. We are all so much more aware of the importance proper hydration than we used to be. Let’s not forget the dogs.

There are so many new and creative ways to make sure your best friend is hydrated. Stop by Dog Patch and check them out. From portable bowls to bottle toppers, we have lots of choices.

Don’t forget your cats. Studies have shown that most cats are walking around with some degree of dehydration every day. Dehydration most always leads to kidney issues down the road.

Think about a pet water fountain. We like the ones from Drinkwell. They’re sturdy and perform well. Try giving your cat wet food with a good amount of water added. It will provide more liquid in their diet.

If your cat likes to drink out of the sink like my cat Susan, let the water run while brushing your teeth. Susan drinks twice a day for sure!

Stop by Dog Patch for more great ideas, inside and out.
