Bella will need more water as ZP is a freeze-dried raw; so they are basically getting the meat with all the moisture stripped out. Some people actually add the ZP to a dish of water, as one would with cereal. =D

It's beef jerky & if you ever ate beef jerky, it makes you thirsty. Sometimes I add just enough water to wet the ZP, but I do keep a very close eye on her water dish to make sure it's always full.

I add water to Toby's ZP too. Not much, just enough to moisten it. It is dehydrated so there is no moisture in it. Adding that moisture is good for them.

Um, it will get soggy and gross if you leave it soaking in water all day, I would assume.
