It is already known that water is of great significance to humans, and up to 60% of the human body is water. But how about pets? There’s no doubt that drinking water is incredibly important for a pet’s health, especially when the weather gets warmer. However, it can get difficult to encourage your pet to drink more water. So, here are some tips.
1. Ways to get your furry baby to drink more water
Flowing water attracts pets, including dogs and cats. In fact, water that is flowing high is more appealing to them as they see it as a source of entertainment, and they will want to drink out of it. Some pets like to drink from a water bottle, while others like to drink from a water bowl. There are also many types of water bowls and fountains. Therefore, pet owners need to find out the ones that their pets prefer.
Keep the water at a place that is easily accessible so that your pets can get to it whenever they want. Remember to replace the water at least once a day to keep the water fresh for your pets. Freshwater is good for your pet’s health and can also encourage your pets to drink more.
2. What type of water bowls to use?
Bowls come in different kinds: stainless steel, plastic, glass, or ceramic. However, stainless steel is the perfect choice for dogs and cats. The most important reason is that stainless steel is safer for pet’s health as plastic bowls may produce harmful chemicals. It’s also easy to clean and unbreakable and won’t get damaged if a pet knocks it off. Additionally, sanitize the water bowl regularly, even if it is made of stainless steel.
