I got some stuff called Rehydrate at a hunt test a few weekends ago and have been trying it with the guys. So far so good - it's a little effevescent thingie. These things aren't cheap, so I'm wondering of this has a placebo effect on me......

Do ya'll use anything when the dogs run in the heat?

Last I heard and understood, dogs aren't in high need of electrolytes as you only lose them when you sweat and dogs don't really sweat. I'm sure it can't really hurt but to my knowledge they're not necessary.

I had heard that. OH well, I have one who is reluctant to drink water when he's working and he'll at least drink this.
