Is your pet drinking enough water?

Pet owners often spend a great deal of time contemplating food choices for their dogs and cats. But have you stopped to think about their water consumption? If you’re like most pet owners, you probably haven't. 

The Importance of Water 

Water aids several critical body functions, including temperature regulation, vitamin absorption, and digestion. A lack of water can increase the risk of bladder infection or crystal formation. 

How Much Water Should My Pet Drink? 

Cats typically require 2-3 times the amount of dry food they consume. If your cat eats six ounces of dry food, he or she will need 12-18 ounces of water. 

Dogs should drink 8.5 to 17 ounces of water for every 10 pounds of their body weight. As an example, if your dog weighs 50 pounds, he or she should drink between 42.5 and 85 ounces of water per day. 

Warm weather, exercise, and other factors can increase the need for water even further. To ensure optimal health, make sure to supply more water than your dog or cat consumes. 

Keep It Clean 

Standing water in puddles, ponds, and other outdoor locations often contain parasites and harmful bacteria. Providing your indoor or outdoor pet with plenty of fresh water will minimize the risk of them drinking from these undesirable sources. 

Running Water 

Products such as the K&H CleanFlow Filter Water Bowl provide pets with great tasting water that’s also clean and healthy. An internal pump circulates water and pushes it through a filter up to 130 times per hour, resulting in pure water any pet will enjoy. 

The CleanFlow reservoir greatly increases the capacity of any CleanFlow product. Spend less time refilling your pet’s bowl and rest easy knowing he or she is well hydrated. Choose from 3 size options for dogs as well as a dedicated CleanFlow model for cats.
