   Did you know that your pet needs one ounce of water for each pound of body weight every day? Just like in humans, drinking enough water is important for your pet’s health. July has been designated as Pet Hydration Month by PetSafe® so it is a great time to see if your pet has a drinking problem!
Proper Hydration is Important
• It prevents urinary tract infections and urinary disease
• Helps energy levels and regulates their temperature
• Speeds recovery time from illness or surgery
• Your pet’s body is 80% water
Signs of Pet Dehydration
• Vomiting
• Lethargy
• Excessive panting
• Sunken, dry eyes
• Dry, pale, and sticky gums
• Loss of skin elasticity
   Dehydration is nothing to play around with so if you see any of these signs in your pet, contact your veterinarian.
Fresh filtered water can help keep your pet hydrated all year
The Benefits of a Pet Water Fountain
• Clean, filtered water
• Pets like running water
• Fresh water encourages drinking
• Easy to clean
• Styles available to suit every pet
PetSafe® Drinkwell® Sedona Pet Fountain
PetSafe Drinkwell® Sedona Pet Fountain  
   It is important that your pet has access to clean fresh water 24/7. I love our new PetSafe Sedona Fountain (←Affiliate Link). It is whisper quiet and absolutely beautiful. It was even featured on the DIY Network Blog Cabin™ Mountain Retreat 2015!
   Bentley took to it right away and began drinking from the fountain and the bowl. Pierre was a bit skittish at first. I think the water action made him leery. Once he saw Bentley enjoy the new Sedona Fountain, he approached it and tasted the water. He realized that it was not only safe but cool fresh water and that’s all it took for him to accept it.
Pierre has decided that he loves our new PetSafe® Sedona Pet Fountain
   I’m so proud of our new fountain and feel great about the boys having filtered water. The summers on the bayou can be brutal so staying hydrated is very important. After all, they don’t call these the “Dog Days of Summer” for nothing!

    1. It is very inviting. I tried to show Pierre it was safe by getting on my hands and knees but he only believed Bentley! ☺

    1. The boys drink so much water especially this time of year.

  3. This is such a stylish fountain, much nicer than a bowl of water. Running water always encourages drinking - when we're hiking and I pour bottled water for Icy into the bowl, she always sticks her nose in there and drinks the water as it's pouring out. She's so funny!

    1. Thanks, Cathy! It is so lovely and much better than a regular plain water bowl.

  5. There's a doggie tradition in this house that started with our Patron Saint Old Charisma, to never drink stale water. Our humans refill the spaniel water bowl every few hours, whether it's empty or not. I have tried a water bowl with a fountain type thing in it. It was a lot of fun to splash all the water out and all over the floor. Ghostwriter says I'm incorrigible.

    1. I usually change the boys water several times each day but it isn't necessary with the Sedona. I can just imagine you splashing in your bowl ♥

  6. I love the idea of a water fountain for the dogs! Bentley looks like he really enjoys it, too. Sadly, Miley prefers the backyard hose to get her water. lol

  9. Luke misses his fountain but we don't have a good place to put one where we can plug it in, so we have a Torus water bowl instead.
    Kitty Sam has a fountain and she loves hers too!

    1. I call Bentley a camel too. He can drink almost a whole regular bowl of water!

    1. One of us (Bentley) has a tendency to make the water yucky. I LOVE our new fountain now. ♥ Your buddy, Pierre

  13. Our dog, R, has obsessive-compulsive disorder, and one of his obsessions is drinking tons and tons of water (to the point that he can damage his kidneys). I laugh to think of him continuously drinking water if he had this fountain!

    I think it's great for almost every dog besides R!

  14. I really like the look of this fountain! I actually think this is a cool type that Beau would like!

  16. Great post! Sorry to say my gang would destroy that water dish in an instant.

  17. Such a beautiful water bowl. My two oafs would probably knock it over as they are heavy drinkers. 😝

  18. What a lovely water bowl! We have a fountain here, and Gracie and Zoe both love drinking from it. :)
