Prevention of dehydration is as important for cats and dogs as it is for humans.
The newest product from FLAVORx, the award-winning Bethesda biotech company, is D-PAK, whose flavored drops will entice feline and canine friends to drink more than 4.3 times the amount of water they normally would and avoid de-hydration and de-hydration related fatalities.
Animals can de-hydrate rapidly; a 10 percent loss of total body water can bring on illness, and a 15 percent water loss can prove fatal. Dog owners are reminded that jogging or running with their pets require extra vigilance in terms of proper hydration.
D-PAK was introduced at the July 16 American Veterinary Medical Association's annual meeting in Minneapolis and has since distributed over 19,000 boxes. Although FLAVORx has had a huge response in the number of orders of D-PAK, CEO Kenny Kramm has stated that the company will retain enough D-PAK to serve all customers.
Orders for D-PAK can be placed directly with FLAVORx by calling 1-800-884-5771 x 212, or may be purchased at Apothepet, the veterinary pharmacy at Center Pharmacy, 4900 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Wash., D.C., 1-866-961-5666.
