How to lead a dog to water and make her drink it

Scarlet has not been drinking water lately. I put her bowl in front of her, but she just pushes it away with her nose. Well, I found a way to make her drink, with what else- treats!


This biscuit came from Moy's hooman GF ( Aki's Manang). I have to break this into small pieces though to prevent choking.


By the time Scarlet finished the biscuit, she has drank all the water too.


I have not seen her smile or look happy or wag her tail in a while. Poor Scarlet.

We're doing the exercises Shelly's Pop taught me. When I pinch her hind leg, I can feel a bit of resistance, she's actually pulling her leg away, but very weakly.

She presented me with a bit of poop today( even without the laxative), perhaps I will add more fiber in her diet so I can totally wean her off the medication.

  1. What a great idea! Very clever! I will have to remember that.

    I hope Scarlet gets better soon. I'm sad to hear that she seems down.

    Please give her a big hug and kiss from us!

  3. Hang in there Scarlet! I know it really sucks right now, but if you keep practicing your exercises, I just know you'll be back on your feet again.
