The most important thing you are able to do for your pet is to keep it hydrated at all times. Water carries important nutrients throughout its body and helps it digest food, avoid overheating and improves overall functioning of your pet’s organism. You need to make sure your pet gets enough fluids, even when you are not home to oversee its water intake.
