One thing no creature on this Earth can live without: WATER!
On average, our pets must be fed water at least 3 times a day - usually at least 2mL for every pound he weighs or at least 2.5 times the amount of daily food he consumes. When your pets eat dry food, they need even more water. And of course you know they prefer cold, fresh water - usually running from the faucet.
Now I'm not saying to turn all our faucets and tubs into Rover's drinking bowl. But what I am saying is that it is very important that we make sure our dogs drink enough water every single day to stay healthy.
And DO NOT forget about yourself! WATER is Mother Nature's medicine.
