Pet Hydration Awareness Month: July Pet Calendar

Pet Hydration Awareness Month: July

PetSafe understands the importance of keeping our pets hydrated so they have named July as “National Pet Hydration Awareness Month.” In many parts of the country, July is the hottest month of the year and states across the country have also been plagued with hotter-than-usual temperatures for the past few months and there appears to be no end in sight. Because of this, pet parents need to be aware of the amount of water their pets drink.

PetSafe writes in a blog post, “Proper hydration is critical and dehydration has serious and immediate health risks in humans and pets… most pet owners are unaware that their pet’s bodies are made up of a higher water percentage than their own human bodies.” Understand the signs of pet dehydration. Better yet, make sure your pets have access to water all day, every day.
