Organic Barley Water - I Love you

Mummy feel that i m not drinking enough water. So how much should a dog drinks per day?
Mummy did a research and found out this: amt vary depend on dogs intake of food: kibbles vs can food and activity per day.

For healthy dogs under 20 lbs, their daily water requirement is 1 cup (8oz) per five pounds of its body weight.

Example One. An 8lb adult Shih Tzu whose daily activities consist of one 20-minute slow walk and some light indoor activities, he would need approximately 1½ cup (12oz) of water per day to maintain a proper level of body fluids.

In order to make me drink more water, mummy try boiling barley water for me. Mummy again did some research for days on barley for dogs and she found out that barley is good for us.

Barley reduces cholesterol and has anti-viral as well as anti cancer activity. It also contains potent anti-oxidants including tocotrientols. It is a good source of Vit B9 (Folic acid), potassium, phosphorous and magnesium. Good for bones as it contain iron and calcium and its high in fibre too. Its works on me. Clever mummy let me try the boil barley grain first and make me drool for it. then she add the barley water wif the gain together for me. In order to reach the grain, i must finish off all the barley water before i can taste the yummy barley. hahah i m a greedy pig so of course i finish off everything.

Verdict: Urine not as yellowish as before which is good. hehe...
