Thirsty Pig Thursday
With the weather slowly starting to warm up whee want to remind hoomans about something furry impawtent. Water and the impawtence of checking your pets water bottles or access to water. This is why whee came up with FULL – Fill, Upend, Leak, Look
Fill – Is it full to the maximum line allowed for the bottle? Some have limits. Making sure you provide them with the most water you can is extremely important, especially when it is hotter and they are drinking more.
Upend – Tipping the bottle up as it would hang on the cage will allow you to check it is working properly.
Leaks – Is the bottle leaking from anywhere?
Look – Is there any discolouration to the water or any green algae type build up. If there is you need to clean it.
Please remember to check your pet’s water bottle regularly. If they break it can easily become quite serious in hot weather with dehydration and heatstroke very real dangers. For more information please check out our guide to Heat Stroke.
Hope everyone is having a great Thursday
