In brief: Yes

Dehydration can result in low blood volume or hypovolemia, which affects tissue perfusion and oxygenetion.
The tissues are stressed and produce acids that spill into blood, which cause acidity in the blood. The extent of acidity can be tested and give an idea of the severity of the dehydration.
