It’s been a scorcher of a Summer, and to help keep homeless dogs healthy, we decided to donate our new hypotonic drink, Hydrate+, to help homeless dogs through the heatwave and beyond.
DOTS (Dogs on the Streets) was set up by Michelle Clark in March last year. The not-for-profit organisation runs weekly ‘street stations’ across London and nationwide to help the homeless community with dogs.
Through its mobile veterinary units, the team provides free care, from routine check-ups and vaccinations to dietary and behavioural advice. DOTS can now also provide biopsies, blood tests and emergency 24/7 care.
But in the recent soaring temperatures, volunteers were struggling to cope with the number of dogs with severe heat stroke symptoms and de-hydration.
“We’re always looking for preventative support for the dogs in our care,” said Michelle, “and Hydrate+ has been one of the best donations we’ve received for exactly this.
“Living rough on London’s concrete takes its toll, especially in hot weather. We’re committed to doing the best for our dogs and why wait for problems to arise – medication and vets bills? Hydrate+ has been so effective even lapped up by the poorliest dogs suffering in the extreme temperatures. It helped get them drinking and quenched their thirst quickly, and naturally.”
The hypotonic formula encourages dogs to drink and is packed with essential electrolytes, glucose and prebiotics to help maintain optimum digestive function. You can try it for yourself, order here!
