Dog Care 101: Caring for a Sick and Dehydrated Dog

Got Water? Water is essential to humans and pets for a healthy & happy life. When dogs becomes ill, it’s very easy for them to become dehydrated & lethargic.

Canine dehydration is a serious issue that can become life-threatening if not properly treated. It is important to constantly hydrate your dog back to health.

Here are some simple tips on how to care for a dehydrated sick dog and get him on the road to recovery & back to his old tricks again:

1. Seek out a certified vet. Your dog may be too ill or dehydrated for you to nurse her back to health and may need vet observation of emergency assistance.

2. Ready, Set, Hydrate! Place your dog on a strict water diet by hydrating your sick dog every 1/2 hour to an hour. If your dog refuses to drink, it is important for you to be persistent. Your dog may be to weak to drink on his or her own, so bringing your sick dog water throughout the night is important.

3. Electrolytes to the Rescue! Make your dog a 5o/50 mixture of Gatorade & water. Gatorade contains sugar and electrolytes that help your dog’s body better hydrate.

4. Hydrate with a dropper. You can use a store bought plastic dropper to administer fluid. Your dog may be too weak to suck on the dropper. One trick: place the dropper in the corner of her mouth and push it in about 1/2 an inch. Squeeze the dropper and release the fluid in the back of the throat. Hold your puppy’s head up for a second or two after each squirt to make sure she gets all of the fluid.

5. Chicken & Rice Diet. Stick to a very simple diet of rice that has been really saturated with chicken or beef broth. Giving your puppy regular food could cause him to develop diarrhea and become even more dehydrated.

6. Revisit the vet if health does not improve. If your dog ‘s condition worsens, make sure you go to the vet immediately as a precaution.

Here are some Frozen Treat Ideas to Keep Your Sick Dog Hydrated

  2. Berry Chicken Pupsicles

BBS Product Spotlight: Anxiety Solutions for Your Dog

September means back to school for over 75 million students around the country and over 7 million education personnel. With students and teachers out of the house, quite a few four-legged friends are facing a quieter, less active day-to-day routine than they’ve become accustomed to over the past few months. For those pups who suffer from separation anxiety, this means more than just fewer belly rubs a day. Dogs who experience extreme stress from being left alone or drastic shifts in their daily routine can exhibit physical side effects ranging from excessive chewing, barking and urinating, to more upsetting signs like diarrhea and vomiting. To help these pups deal with change, Best Bully Sticks offers a variety of anxiety solutions for your dog:

Animals Apawthecary Tranquility Blend: Reduce your dog’s stress – and thus your stress – with this glycerine-based herbal relaxation formula by Animal Essentials. Ideal for dogs and cats, this made in the USA pet product contains certified organic extract of skullcap herb for alleviation of nervous tension, valerian root and passion flower for their anti-anxiety properties, and oat flowering tops for additional soothing and relaxation. With a sweet taste and alcohol-free formula, this 1oz bottle contains a big sigh of relief inside.

The Anxiety Wrap: The Anxiety Wrap is a pressure wrap designed to lessen fear and anxiety in dogs through maintained stress-relieving acupressure. The first of its kind on the market, the wrap targets acupressure points on the dog’s body with a light pressure to release a calming effect. Featuring adjustable elastic bands for customization to each individual dog, the wrap relieves stress without inhibiting the dog’s ability to use the bathroom, eat or perform other daily activities. Available in sizes mini to large, and accompanied by a 100% satisfaction guarantee and free online support, the Anxiety Wrap is a great way to relieve anxiety without the use of medication.

Bach Rescue Remedy: Bach’s Rescue Remedy is all-natural stress relief for dogs. Safe and gentle, this alcohol-free formula helps reduce your pup’s tension and restores emotional balance.

Available in a 20ml bottle, this made-in-the-USA product is mixed together to help your dog overcome emotional stressors such as separation anxiety, adjusting to new surroundings, and visits to the groomer or vet.

 

For additional help with separation anxiety or during other stressful times, also consider giving your dog an all-natural bully stick to gnaw on for tension relief!
