REHYDRATE was developed in conjunction with a doctor of veterinary medicine who specializes in animal nutrition at a leading university in the United States.
Also included are Vitamin C and other antioxidant minerals geared to promote general wellness. Each tablet is also flavored to enhance the palatability to promote optimum hydration and water intake.
During prolonged exercise, humans that do not hydrate will experience increased heart rate, increased core body temperature and a reduced sweat rate. This is caused by dehydration and the body attempts to retain all available fluid without any additional way to cool down.
Dogs on the other hand do NOT sweat as profusely as humans do; they rely on their tongue and the pads on their feet to regulate and dispel heat.
In this regard, regulation of fluid levels becomes more important to control heart rate and core body temperature. By helping to maintain normal heart and temperature conditions, the animal is less likely to suffer from the fatigue associated with exercise.
For light to moderate play or workout activity, simply drop (1) REHYDRATE tablet into 16 ounces of water or 2 tablets into 32 ounces of water, let dissolve for about 2 minutes and give to dog to drink. For heavy play or workout activity, or pronounced fluid loss, REHYDRATE can be used at maximum strength by doubling the amount. Dissolve (2) REHYDRATE tablets into 16 ounces of water, or (4) tablets into 32 ounces of water for optimal rehydration purposes. For faster dissolution, break up tablet into water. NOTE: In more finicky dogs, an acclimation for the product will need to develop. In these cases, offer to your pet via your hand or "feed wet" by pouring the mixture over their food until acceptance occurs. This product is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only.
