Water and Your Pets: Be A Responsible Pet Owner and Get Your Pets On Board

Water is essential for all living creatures, including our pets. As pet owners, we must ensure that our furry friends have access to fresh, clean, and safe water at all times. Adequate hydration helps regulate your pet's body temperature, keeps their joints healthy, and supports their overall health. 

However, not all pets are the same, and they have different water requirements. For instance, dogs require more water than cats, and larger breeds need more water than smaller ones. Additionally, some pets, like birds, require a water source for bathing and preening. 

As a responsible pet owner, you should monitor your pet's water intake and ensure they drink enough. You can achieve this by providing fresh water in clean bowls, monitoring their water dish's cleanliness, and offering substitutes if your pet has difficulty drinking water. Substitutes like water-rich foods, such as cucumbers, watermelon, and celery, can help keep your pet hydrated. You can also offer your pets ice cubes or add a small amount of water to their food to increase their water intake. 

In conclusion, knowing your pet's water requirements is crucial for their health and wellbeing. As a pet owner, ensure that your furry friend has access to fresh, clean, and safe water at all times. Also, make sure to monitor their water intake and offer substitutes if necessary. With proper hydration, your pet can enjoy a healthy and happy life with you.

About Pets On Board

Their mission is to investigate, help prosecute and prevent cruelty to animals while also promote adoption awareness and humane education plus responsible pet ownership. Pets On Board started in Wilkes-Barre, PA in 1995 when owner James A. Donnelly wanted to help animals online when he discovered that online adoptions did not exist. Donnelly set out to give web development a try experimenting with the world wide web in 1992. Digital cameras did not exist to the level of today and were extremely expensive. Donnelly used his existing video camera making still images of local dogs and cats from the Luzerne County SPCA and making his animal website on his video page moonvideo as a trial. Later PetsOnBoard.com was born and gained popularity when it was featured on local WBRE-TV and later an NBC featured national story.
