FortiFido: Vitamin Water For Your Dog

FortiFido Vitamin Water for Dogs: Spoiled Sweet or Spoiled Rotten?

I know I'm totally guilty of spending a big chunk of cash on pet supplies and food, and apparently I'm not the only one with a recent study saying that Americans will spend over $40 billion dollars on pampering their pets this year. To add to the pampered lifestyle of pets comes FortiFido, a doggie vitamin supplement in water form, so your pooch can lap up his vitamins without you having to coerce him to swallow a pill.

What's the deal, you ask? Each of the four drinks focuses on keeping your pup healthy and is packed with essential vitamins and minerals, plus it's all pet/human safe, so if you grab your pet's water instead of yours after a workout, it's a-OK. The flavors include peanut butter for strong bones, lemongrass flavor for healthy joints, spearmint flavor for fresh breath, and parsley flavor for great skin. I know that North would dig the peanut butter flavor and possibly even the spearmint. But I have to ask myself if he would ever drink something that's lemongrass flavored? And what the heck does parsley water taste like?!

I have it from very reliable sources that not only do dogs like the flavors, but many people think the spearmint tastes like MetroMint and the lemongrass tastes like water with a squeeze of lemon. Also, it is safe for cats! I can't wait for it to show up in stores.

I would buy this for and give it to my dogs. What I would love to know is it healthy for human consumption? I am willing to bet that it is, NOT that I want to drink it or would even try it myself, but IF I bought vitaminwater for myself and gave it to my dogs, it would make them sick as it has 33 grams of sugar in one bottle! Isn't it funny that we will drink sugar filled vitamin water yet we would never give that to our dogs!? Just a thought... http://juliahavey.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/04/vitaminwater-no.html

I might do it if I didn't also live with a cat who constantly drinks out of my dog's bowl.

What the hell? You know, if you exercise your dog and keep it healthy, you don't need to waste your money on products designed to make money from the wealthy or idiotic. It's not for the dog, it's for them, really. It's kinda obvious :)

I haven't read up on it, but if it was good for the dog, I most certainly would buy it. However, who really knows if the dogs like it? He may just put up with the flavor because he's thirsty. I wouldn't get the breath-freshener because is completely self-serving and not for the dog at all, unless he just happened to love the flavor.

Normally, I'd roll my eyes at bottled water for dogs, but the fact that it's a vitamin supplement makes me feel otherwise. My dog is such a brat, and giving her pills can be really frustrating. I'd consider buying her one of these as a rare treat.

i love it..im trying to find where it is sold. i think they will expand the retailer list as it comes into the market more.

I was going to say spoiled rotten...but I guess if you were giving your dog a vitamin in pill form anyway, then it's probably not much different than that. If it's healthy for the dog, tastes like a treat and hydrates them, then why not?

Back when I had my dog Tucker I used to buy him this stuff called "Dog Water". It was carbonated, meat-flavored water for dogs. He loved it. But it was more of a jokey sort of thing - my brother and I got a kick out of watching Tucker drink his bubbly dog water then snort and roll on the ground and bark at the bowl of water.

Peanut Butter Flavored water? Seriously?

i know some people who give their dogs vitamin enhanced water (but not this brand). they swear by it ... especially when their dogs are in heat. as for my pups, they are lucky if they get filtered water in their dishes ... because tap water is just fine for them! and, they'll have to get their vitamins in their food.
