Animal Health: Dogs should not drink meltwater

Dogs should not drink meltwater in the wild to quench their thirst. As the German Animal Welfare Association in Bonn explained, the molten water often contains dangerous bacteria and viruses that could trigger infections. Although stomach acid can kill some of the pathogens, small cracks in the dog's oral mucosa can still cause illness in the animal.

Road salt and pollutants in the water
In cities and on busy streets, toxic de-icing salt and pollutants could also have accumulated in the water. The toxins could damage the liver and lead to vomiting and diarrhea. So that the dogs do not drink the water, dog owners should always carry dog ​​food with them to keep the animal from harmful drinking. For longer stays in the great outdoors or when traveling, it is advisable to always carry water with you. Special containers for the transport and for the enrichment of water can be purchased in an animal shop. (sb, January 31, 2011)
