Just how much water should your Boxer have when it's hot?

Updated: Jun 16


How much water a Boxer needs will be based on the weight of your dog. We are going to look at what is generally needed and then show the 10% increase that is expected due to the factors listed above.

  • 10 lbs. (4.53 kg) = 1.62 cups (.38 liters) per day. Summer time: up to 1.78 cups (.42 liters)

  • 20 lbs. (9.07 kg) = 3.24 cups (.76 liters) per day. Summer time: 3.56 cups (.84 liters)

  • 30 lbs. (13.6 kg) = 4.86 cups (1.14 liters) per day. Summer time max high end: 5.34 cups (1.26 liters)

  • 40 lbs. (18.1 kg) = 6.48 cups (1.53 liters) per day. Summer time max high end: 7.12 cups (1.68 liters)

  • 50 lbs. (22.7 kg) = 8.1 cups (1.91 liters) per day. Summer time max high end 8.91 cups (2.1 liters)

  • 60 lbs. (27.2 kg) = 9.72 cups (2.29 liters) per day. Summer time max high end: 10.6 cups (2.5 liters)

Your Boxer can be dehydrated without you knowing. Severe signs of dehydration are quite obvious: The gums become dry and sticky, saliva becomes thick, eyes are super sunken and there is severe weakness.
