Dog safety expert Melanie Monteiro provides tips and tricks to keep a pet hydrated in a new “Pet Hydration Tips When Traveling” video from Sleepypod. 

As pet owners plan summer travel and outdoor activities with their pets, Sleepypod® reminds pet owners that keeping a pet hydrated can be a tricky endeavor. A change in a pet’s routine can often affect water intake. In the new “Pet Hydration Tips When Traveling” video, dog safety expert Melanie Monteiro discusses how much pets should drink and provides hydration tips to keep pets happy, healthy and hydrated.  Pet hydration tips include:

  • Freeze water in a non-metal, BPA-free bowl in advance of travel.
  • Add water to food.
  • Make flavored water.
  • Try an electrolyte replacer.
  • Add ice cubes since pets are more likely to drink cool water.
  • Pack a straw or oral syringe.
