    I'd try adding some broth. Stig would always drink right after he sees me putting some in his water.

    I know some days the boys don't drink water during the day when we're at work. Is it possible that Banks is drinking from Chelli's bowl when her crate's open?

    Wish I was some help, we add water to Kains food so it's moist and after he is done chewing the deer antlers he drinks for sure.

    Hope all is well and you figure it out.

    have you tried adding water to her canned food? It is very weird, you are obviously doing a great job at not letting her dehydrate

    Canned food tends to hold a lot of water content in it ,banks may be getting enough in the canned food,we tend to forget that they are not like us popping the kettle on for a brew each hour,the canned food will be much like raw ,the dogs get all the fluid they need from it,if he's not dehydrated then he's getting enough fluid,try making some liver broth,simmer a small piece of liver until all the colour has come out of the liver,take the liver out and let the fluid cool,he may drink it and it's very good source of nutrients ,,also try taking his water bowl up and dont put it back down when you feed him,put it down after a few hours but in a different place,karen

    Hate to say this, but is it possible he's drinking from the toilet bowl when no one is looking?

    I too am interested in the outcome with the vet. A couple of days ago I sent a thread about head tremors I have been experiencing with Otis and while going through older threads some noted they found triggers - I have been looking to see what may cause this for Otis and the only thing I can come up with is he doesnt drink a lot of water.

    I leave him in the morning and come home and his water has not been touched, he will drink SOME at night but not as much as I'd like to see.

    Just from reading comments above I am going to add water to his dry food. I was thinking that because I mix baby food with his dry that he is getting enough water from that but I'd still like to be sure he is getting enough. It's so tough being a parent....lol Always questioning everything.

    Thanks you cowsmom, pretty scary stuff but glad I found the information on EBN to be confident thats what it is. Had I not been on this site, I'm afraid of what my vet may have come up with and medications they would have suggested and me not knowing would have done what was suggested.

    Just keeping close eye and record of it now.

    When my Sushi Cat was having issues - or so I thought (turned out to be nothing) - the vet suggested getting one of those water fountain things to encourage drinking. As it turns out, I have a fountain on the deck and a fish tank that he drinks out of - so problem solved. Maybe try that?

    I know after a walk, these two want a drink from the hose. If we skip the hose, they'll come in and look at their giant bowl of fresh water and may or may not drink. If it's the hose, it's like a FONT of FABULOUS FLAVOR to them. Funny.
