Winter dehydration in horses

July 5th, 2017

Winter can bring along a host of problems for horses, one of the main ones being dehydration. Many people think that because it is cold their horses won’t want to drink much which can lead to your horse suffering from dehydration. Research has proven that horses prefer to drink warmer water and in turn means that they will drink more, thus keeping hydrated. This can be quite hard to get them to drink more water during these colder months as the temperature can make it too chilly too drink.

Petplan have put together an info-graphic that explains the reasons behind winter dehydration and what you can do to keep your horse hydrated this winter!
