How Long Can Dogs Go Without Water ?
Are you wondering why I talked about dehydration before answering the question that you’re here for ?
It’s because I wanted you to know (and understand) the consequences of leaving your dog without water for a long time.
Now, I’ll finally answer your burning question.
Dogs can go without water for 2-3 days.
The exact time actually depends on your dog’s breed, medical conditions, the weather, etc.
So, that being said, your dog will probably be able to go longer without water during winters than in summers.
Similarly, smaller dogs will be able to go without water longer than bigger dogs.
But, I’d like to warn you that leaving your doggy friend without water for long is never a good idea and can negatively affect your pet’s health.
But, the exact number of days depends on a few factors such as :
– The dog’s breed
– The temperature and weather conditions
– The dog’s genetic makeup
Aside from that…
It is not a good idea to leave your dog without water for a long time as it can lead to dehydration and several other health problems in the longer run.
So, I’d advise you always provide your furry friend with some fresh water and make prior arrangements before leaving your doggy friend home for a short trip…
I hope this blog helped answer your question and help you understand the dangers of dehydration as well.
