These are the recommendations that you should follow

Our dog is a member of the family, that’s why he accompanies us on our trips and vacations. If you go to the beach or the mountains, you obviously want him to accompany you, and for this you look for special rooms: apartments, cute hotels that allow pets so that they can be with you and even beaches in Spain that accept dogs in summer to take a dip together.

It is true that not all beaches allow dogs. You have to be careful with the fines for taking your dog to the beach without this being pet-friendly, and even if you can, you must follow a series of basic rules to take your pet to the beach and so everyone can enjoy.

In addition to these rules, if you take your dog to the beach you have to be very careful that do not drink sea water, you run the risk of poisoning and this can create a problem for your health.

It is best to bring enough water for your pet. If there is no fresh water source on the beach, it is best to always carry fresh water so that you can drink whenever you are thirsty.

If you dog has drunk salt water, its most common symptoms are vomiting, diarrhea and malaise. Apathy, listlessness or fever may be other common side effects.

The best recommendations

If he has vomiting and diarrhoea, he tends to dehydrate quickly and, depending on his weight and age, it can become very dangerous, so it is best to go to an emergency veterinarian. But we give you a series of recommendations:

  • Place the dog in a shady place without overwhelming him
  • Try to get him to drink the water we brought him for him
  • go to the vet
  • White diet in the next few days: boiled rice, boneless meat or chicken
  • If he has diarrhea, the vet will surely prescribe antidiarrheals or antiemetics to stop vomiting. In both cases, the sooner you expel the salt water, the better.
