Like humans, dogs and cats can get dehydrated, which can cause a serious and potentially fatal medical crisis, Downing said. By the time a pet owner would notice signs or symptoms, it could be too late to treat.

Extreme panting, lethargy, sunken eyes, dry-tacky gums, and refusing treats and food are some of the signs that your dog or cat may be dehydrated, said Dr. Dayna Edwards with Edwards Veterinary Care in Greeley, Colorado.

Providing accessible fresh water for pets — both at home and while on outings — is key to keeping them hydrated, and if you see your dog or cat exhibiting any of the above symptoms, contact your vet immediately.
