Quick, reliable rehydration is important for your pets as temperatures begin to rise across the UK this summer, ensuring effective hydration and avoiding potential health issues. As little as a 2°C increase in your dog’s body temperature is all it takes for heat stress to kick in. Like people, your dog or cat needs consistent and reliable hydration to help control their temperature. This is something the team behind the latest innovation in pet hydration are all too aware of, and they are delighted to introduce a new, refreshing, ready-to-drink isotonic beverage for pets, similar to sports drinks for people.
Isotonic drinks supply the right balance of water, minerals and nutrients to facilitate the replacement of what the body uses during exertion, catering for anything from rigorous hike to sitting basking in the summer sun. They contain similar concentrations of salt and sugar as those found in the body. They quickly replace fluids lost through panting and sweating (through their paw pads) and supply a much-needed boost of carbohydrates and nutrients.
DoggyRade – much more than just water
DoggyRade is an isotonic drink that encourages fast hydration in dogs. It increases fluid intake, helping dogs rehydrate quickly after exercise, exposure to warmer weather and for older dogs to encourage them to drink more regularly. DoggyRade steps in where water falls short, water alone does not replace electrolytes lost through exertion. With the necessary electrolytes to help dogs rehydrate quickly DoggyRade also contains prebiotics helping to support gut health, improve digestion and nutrient absorption. Even the fussiest of dogs love the chicken taste, in tests comparing fluid intake versus water, dogs drank four times more DoggyRade than water!
KittyRade – finally, the hydration your cat needs
Unlike most dogs, cats are fussy drinkers and can sometimes be reluctant to drink plain water. It’s well known that a major cause of medical problems in pet cats arises out of insufficient fluid intake. KittyRade, as an isotonic drink, encourages reliable hydration in cats. KittyRade’s aromatic chicken smell and delicious taste entices cats to drink. Containing prebiotics which help to support gut health, improve digestion and nutrient absorption, KittyRade also includes glutamic acid, beneficial for intestinal function, and contains taurine, an essential amino acid for cats, which promotes eye and heart health. In KittyRade’s latest trials testing fluid intake in cats, cats drank three times more KittyRade than water.
YummyRade – improve your pet’s appetite and digestion
The new pet product range also includes a tasty gravy topper for pet food. YummyRade is a low-calorie meal enhancer to improve the taste and palatability of pet food. A great flavour booster that encourages both dogs & cats to eat their food. Really helpful, if your pets are on bland diets, or fussy eaters. Many gravy toppers are high calorie and fat based, but YummyRade is extremely low in calories and fat. You can use it to make your pet’s food tastier, without worrying about weight gain or creating digestive issues. YummyRade also contains prebiotics to support gut health.
