    Default Gatorade

    I filled the boys pool up today. We plan on opening the main pool in two weeks. Weesie and I were working around the pool yesterday (plants and crap) and it was hot outside. I sucked down Gatorade and I gave the boys a sip. I thought I better check with the Pro's here to see if it is okay to give the boys Gatorade. What do you think? Ralphie

    I think I have heard of giving gatorade when a dog has been over heated to replace lost electrolytes-if they have gotten over heated, but it has sugar, so it wouldn't be a drink for a steady diet.

    Gatorade contains too much sugar for a dog and there are also artificial colorings and additives which can disrupt the healthy functioning of the urinary tract and other systems. Plus some other sports drinks contain vitamins and minerals that are good to for humans, but not good for dogs.

    I think pedialyte (spelling) is a better option as I think it has no sugar or less

    Default Re: Gatorade

    I would only give that in an emergency situation. Like the others have said, it's full of sugar and fake dyes. I would stick with pure water If a dog doesn't want to drink you can also add a small amount of low sodium chicken broth to their water. This link has good info about it.
