- Rehydrate is designed to give canines a more effective hydration
system than drinking plain water. Water has no flavour so it is
difficult for most active dogs to consume enough to stay well
hydrated. Research has shown that dogs will consume more of a
flavoured drink than that of just plain water. In addition, water
contains no electrolytes and therefore cannot help to replace
electrolytes such as sodium, chloride and potassium. Also included
are Vitamin C and other antioxidant minerals geared to promote
prolonged exercise, humans that do not hydrate will experience
increased heart rate, increased core body temperature and a reduced
sweat rate. This is caused by dehydration and the body attempts to
retain all available fluid without any additional way to cool down.
Dogs on the other hand do NOT sweat as profusely as humans do; they
rely on their tongue and the pads on their feet to regulate and
dispel heat. In this regard, regulation of fluid levels becomes more
important to control heart rate and core body temperature. By
helping to maintain normal heart and temperature conditions, the
animal is less likely to suffer from the fatigue associated with
use fluid replacement frequently to treat dogs that suffer
electrolyte loss through diarrhea and vomiting. They create an
"isotonic" solution that will mimic the ion levels found
in the blood stream (285 mOsmol/kg of water) and essentially
rebalance the system by saturating the plasma with any lost ions.
Rehydrate can be used therapeutically at a two-tablet dose to
provide the best hydration for animals that have pronounced fluid
some dogs it may be necessary to introduce Rehydrate into their
water slowly so that they get used to the taste.
