Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Puppy drastic change in the amount of water consumed   Sat Sep 21, 2013 3:06 am

Hi guys,
My puppy Aaron is 75 days old. Until the other day he was drinking water like crazy but since yesterday he has limmited that activity drastically. I constantly change his bowl of water with fresh one and clean it only by hand and with water. I feed him with a mix of rice, meat and royal canin and i make sure his food is wet and moist.
When I noticed the lack of desire to drink almost two bowls of water a day (now it's less than half) I started checking his gums as well and sometimes during the day they feel a little dry.
He is still very playful and running around like crazy when he is not sleeping, but this drastic change in his behaviour worries me a little bit, as he is my first puppy that I take full responsibility and care of.
Is there a reason to worry?

Well depending on where you live, it is starting to get cooler outside. Summer calls for more water for huskies since it is really hot outside... now that it is Fall, and the weather is dropping in temp, maybe he just doesn't feel the need to have so much anymore?

You got a point, I didn't even spent a second to think about it from this perspective Smile)
He went ballistic yesterday with the German Shephard of my cousins and had 2 bowls of water for the period of 5 hours Very Happy

You're welcome. I noticed that Okami has been slacking on how much water she has been drinking as well, but I live in Michigan, so it has already hit 50 degrees at around 4PM on a few of the days, so she is loving the weather a lot, even wanting to eat less since we have been getting a little lax on the exercise... I need to get my bike fixed, the back rim got bent somehow >.< Anyhow, glad that I could help! Hope to see you around the forum more! ^_^
