Rehydrate - the Electrolyte Sports Drink for Dogs - was developed in conjunction with a doctor of veterinary medicine who specializes in animal nutrition at a leading university in the United States.
Rehydrate is designed to give canines a more effective hydration system than drinking plain water. The effervescent tablet that dissolves in water is formulated to replenish any lost electrolytes - i.e. sodium, chloride, potassium, etc.- due to aerobic activity. 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.
Rehydrate Electrolyte Sport Dog Drink is the first effervescent rehydration supplement for dogs designed to replenish lost electrolytes and spent energy. Given during and after workouts, hard play, or vigorous activity, Rehydrate is a more effective hydration system than drinking plain water.
