Why Do Dogs and Cats Need so Much Water?

On today’s edition of The Hydro Pet Post, we’ve got a fun pet hydration fact. Did you know that while humans are only made up of about 60% water, cats and dogs are made up of around 80% water?

This information is significant because dog and cats actually need more water than their human companions do in hot weather relative to their size. Worse still, is that their methods of cooling off are often less efficient and effective than ours. It's up to us as responsible pet owners to make sure they are getting the right amount.For more information on how much your pet should drink, visit our last post
