Rehydrate Dog Sports Drink
Rehydrate Active Hydration with the Science behind Rehydrate for Dogs
Having a Sporting Dog is like having an Athlete and should be maintained as one. Feeding a high quality dog food formulated for your dog’s size and activity level is essential and so is keeping them hydrated not only with water, but water with science behind it.
Hydration & Science behind Rehydrate for Dogs
Veterinarians use fluid replacement often to treat animals that suffer electrolyte loss through diarrhea and vomiting. They create an “isotonic” solution that will mimic the ion levels found in the blood stream (285 mOsmol/kg of water) and essentially rebalance the system by imbuing the plasma with any lost ions. Rehydrate can be used therapeutically at a two-tablet dose to provide the best hydration for animals that have pronounced fluid losses.
Fluid osmolality refers to the concentration of particles dissolved in a solution. In the blood stream this refers to the proteins, ions, and anything dissolved in the plasma. The normal range of canine plasma is between 280-300 mOsmol/kg of water. Rehydrate is designed so that one tablet dissolved in 16oz. of water provides 145 mOsmol/kg of water (290 mOsmol/kg of water for a therapeutic two tablet dose in 16oz.) compared to 6 mOsmol/kg for plain tap water. This causes a dilution of the plasma in the blood stream. If plasma osmolality decreases, water must enter cells and the cellular volume increases. Therefore drinking tap water can cause cellular water retention and bloating whereas Rehydrate will reduce the cellular volume increase and supply much needed ions to the blood stream.
Water has no flavor so it is difficult for most dogs to consume enough to stay well hydrated. Our research has shown that dogs will consume a greater volume of flavored water verses plain water. In addition, while water plays an important role in your dog’s overall health, it contains no nutritional value and its main purpose is to carry and move important nutrients into and out of the cells of the body. It aids in the digestion of food and helps the body to absorb the nutrients. In addition, water serves to cool the body down and works to maintain normal body temperature. Water lubricates and cushions joints and makes movement easier. Basically, every important body function requires water and that’s why Rehydrate utilizes the role water plays in your dog’s body to deliver essential supplements via effervescent technology better and faster than that of traditional methods.
Effervescent technology, often referred to as the “ultimate delivery system” is the key to the products success. This delivery system used by the Rehydrate product line is revolutionary to the pet industry. According to Clinical Therapeutics (volume 28, issue 5 from May of 2005), effervescent delivery provides a balanced pH so that when a canine ingests it, this product optimizes the stomach pH and creates the perfect conditions for the stomach’s absorption of all kinds of nutrients. Furthermore, the Physicians’ Desk Reference suggests that approximately 90% of supplements that are offered in capsule or tablet form, the most commonly used method, are virtually ineffective and claim that for every $100 spent, $90 is wasted. The problem is that these tablets just don’t match up well with human or canine digestive systems. Compare these types of supplements to a “liquid” effervescent delivery system and the same evidence shows that 90%-100% of the supplement is absorbed. Why?
In short, because the effervescent format bypasses the digestive process and the nutrients are directly absorbed into the blood stream and into the cellular structures (cells), making them much more effective for anyone that takes them, including our pets. Our formulas also contain zero calories and absolutely no sugar. There is no scummy layer floating on the surface of the water or undesired sedimentation of potentially key nutrients. Rehydrate products aim for a clean, clear dissolution to deliver all of the intended benefits.
Rehydrate for Dogs Active Hydration is based on the isotonic balance used when canines come to the hospital suffering from dehydration. These tablets encourage dogs to stay well hydrated in order to help counteract the effects of fatigue, lethargy and muscle soreness.
The effervescent tablets dissolve into your dog’s drinking water to create an isotonic solution that mimics the ion levels found in the blood stream. It rebalances the system referred to as Fluid Osmolality and helps to optimize circulation, flush out toxins, regulate body temperature and allows the body to repair itself while promoting recovery. Infused with natural flavor, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals, Rehydrate “Active Hydration” is ideal for dogs that walk, hike, run, or jog with their owner, compete and/or love to hunt.
The truth is that all dogs could benefit from Rehydrate “Active Hydration”. Dogs that weigh 20 lbs or less should be consuming 8 oz (1 glass) for every 5 lbs – so a 10 lb dog needs 16 oz of water, 15 lb dog needs 24 oz of water, or 20 lb dog needs 32 oz of water. Dogs that are over 20 lbs should consume 1 oz per pound. This would equate to a 40 lb dog needing 40 oz of water. That is on non-active days. It is imperative that owners encourage our canine companions to stay healthy and hydrated. Water is the essence of life and Rehydrate strives to entice water intake and promote a healthy lifestyle.
The Effervescent Benefits of Rehydrate Sports Drink for Dogs
A well designed effervescent tablet can allow a large dose of ingredients to be taken in a single serving. The organic food acid combines with the carbonate source to form potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium salts of the acid, and buffers the solution to a normal pH, so it is easy on the stomach. Clinical studies performed on a variety of effervescent products demonstrate that the ingredients penetrate the blood stream within as little as 15 minutes.
Effervescent products offer a unique and advantageous delivery system
• Bio-available – easily absorbed into the blood stream
• Portable – pet owners can take them anywhere ( camping! work! home! vacation! on the go! ) and use them with any water source
1. Better and quicker absorption
In water, the effervescent tablets produce a pleasant tasting solution due to our natural flavor contained in the tablets. In conventional solid tablets, compounds dissolve slowly in the stomach, which often delays or reduces absorption. With effervescent tablets dissolved in a liquid, the ingredients are absorbed quickly, completely, and uniformly. The effervescence also creates a protected “buffered” solution that passes quickly into the small intestine for immediate absorption. The absorption time frame for conventional pills, gels or soluble powders can range anywhere between 30-60 minutes to start whereas absorption of effervescent tablets take place in as little as 15 minutes.
After swallowing, conventional solid tablets or capsules are transported to the stomach where they dissolve gradually. They are also bombarded with digestive enzymes and harsh acidic conditions which can damage and degrade the nutrients prior to reaching the blood stream. The passage time varies in different dogs, depending on anatomical and physiological factors. In case of a longer passage time, solid dosage forms can dissolve partially and this may cause irritation of mucous membranes. With a dissolved tablet, the ingredients are evenly distributed in the solution, so that high, localized concentrations cannot occur. The solution of the effervescent tablet contains a balanced ratio of acids and carbonates. This balance is called a buffer, and the buffer shields the product from harsh stomach conditions for more efficient passage into the small intestine.
3. Advantages in case of swallowing problems
Many dogs have problems swallowing solid tablets or capsules and this situation offers an additional challenge for pet parents to get their canine pals to swallow them. Furthermore, trying to squeeze a gel pack into a dog’s mouth can present a whole new set of challenges. Effervescent tablets are a good alternative for this stressful dilemma.
4. Simple handling and measuring into exact doses
Effervescent tablets can simply be dissolved in your dog’s water bowl or squirt bottle, and after a short period of time, a palatable solution is ready for drinking. This is a great advantage over having to dissolve granules or powders. Granules and instant powders must be measured first, and then stirred in the glass several times to obtain a uniform solution. With effervescent tablets, the dose is standardized, and the liquid quantity is variable depending on the product of choice.
