BORDER COLLIES & DEADLY WATER INTOXICATION
WATER SAFETY FOR YOUR BORDER COLLIE
I just want to touch on water intoxication and how important it is for all of us to remember. It’s unlikely that our new owners will be out this summer with the pups in water but we do have a big family and this is one of those things that sadly can kill very quickly.
For those that do have water lovers please be very cautious, 15 min max in water, 30-45 minutes on land and make sure your dog is peeing during that time.
Once water intoxication happens, it is a very rapid deterioration and a very high risk of death.
Our dogs often have balls in their mouth which increases risk and speed of water intake.
So enjoy the water but do it safely! And for a much better explanation here’s a in depth article. https://drtims.com/…/news/water-intoxication-and-your-dog
