For some reason my chihuahua will not drink water my vet said to put some beef bouillon in the water and it should get her to drink it. Well she still wont drink it and i dont know what too do. Im totaly confused on what to do to get her to drink it. even if i mix her food in the water then she wont eat neither.
How old is the pup? Could it have been taken away from the mum too early and hasn't learned to properly be weaned? Did you get the pup from a pet store? Some pet stories use water bottles (like you use for rabbits) instead of a dish. Maybe the pup knows how to drink out of that but not a dish. You could try buying a small one and see if you can get your pup to drink from it. Is the pup lively, or is it kinda acting 'sad' or strange? Hypoglycemia is a common problem with chis and can be deadly. Hopefully the pup hasn't developed that, but to be cautious I would go to petsmart and buy 'nutracal' and put some on your finger and put it in the dog's mouth 3 times a day. See if that perks the dog up. In the meantime, I would use a dropper, and drop SMALL amounts of water in the dogs mouth. Like just a few drops and see what the dog does. I would definately take him to the vet if he doesn't start drinking after a day or so.
how long have you had the dog? Not drinking water is a big deal, any dog.. but especially a chihuahua... can dehydrate and possibly die within 72 hours. Have you taken her to the vet and seen if there's some other problem? Will she just eat? But not drink? Are you absolutely positive she's not drinking water from somewhere else, like a puddle out in the backyard?
