    giving dog salt

    Does any one give salt to their dogs? I was reading on another forum about a guys dog who could not handle running in the summer months, this guy started feeding the dog a little salt with its meals, in no time the dog was a changed dog and had no problem running in the heat, I’m assuming its because the salt helps the dog retain water better? This would probably a good question for a vet but would like to hear from everyone else first.

    I give my dog water mixed with sugar and a little salt every time we go for a run. This is to keep him hydrated and to replenish the lost ions after exercise.
