As we all know, most of the human body is made of water, which accounts for 70% of its weight. From this simple data, we can see that water is the source of life for human beings, and we need to consume between 2000 and 2500ml of water per day. Is the same true for huskies? When we take care of a Siberian Husky, a lot of people are to take a basin of water to the dog, the dog thirsty on their own to drink, when to drink, when to refill. I don’t know if you do the same thing? How do you define your dog’s daily hydration needs?
Normal people drink too much water generally will not have too much impact on health, will only cause frequent urination, excessive volume, thus causing inconvenience in life. For dogs, drinking too much water can lead to stomach distention, electrolyte imbalances, and hyponatremia, among other things, if there is no scientific method to control how much a dog drinks. So what happens if you drink too little water? Drinking too little water can lead to dehydration, organ failure, and even death.
The amount of water a husky is given is generally determined by the dog’s five main factors. The first is the husky’s physical condition. The condition was divided into the dog’s mood and the dog’s physical condition. The second is the age of the dog: generally speaking, for dogs in the development period, the need for water is larger than that of adult dogs, the frequency of water is also relatively frequent. So a three-month-old husky needs more water than an adult husky does. Then there’s the husky weight: we only need about 100ml of water per 1kg of body weight. Then there is the amount of activity of the huskies. Dogs use up a lot of water during exercise, so we need to keep the huskies hydrated. The last factor is the weather. If the weather is too hot, the huskies themselves will be able to cool down by evaporating water, so the water consumption will also be continuously consumed, so in the hot weather, the water needs to be satisfied. By contrast, winter doesn’t provide as much moisture as summer does, but it’s still essential.
We should have plenty of clean water for Husky to drink whenever he wants. We don’t have to feed the dog on a regular basis to keep it from being out of step with the dog’s needs. It is important to note that when a dog eats, we need to have plenty of water around the bowl for the dog to drink. Because dog food is a portion of dry food, if Husky only eats dog food and does not drink water, then it will threaten the dog’s health. Adequate drinking water every day can wash away the secretion of the urinary system in time, reduce the rate of stone production, at the same time, it also has the role of promoting metabolism. For the sake of Husky’s health, we must ensure the dog’s daily water intake. If your dog doesn’t like water, we can give him high water content foods like canned dogs, Chinese cabbage, apples, and pears, but we need to set the right amount for Husky.
