WHY WON’T MY DOG DRINK WATER?

WHY WON’T MY DOG DRINK WATER?
Water is an essential component of the body and is also very important for specific body processes like the circulation of blood, digestion, and removal of waste; thus, being dehydrated is dangerous not only for humans but canines.

So what could be the reason?
Could it be that your dog is sick or unhappy?
Or could it be that you are overreacting?

HOW MUCH WATER DOES YOUR DOG NEED?
You need to know the quantity of water your dog should take in daily before you trouble yourself with why your dog is refusing to drink water. The amount of water your dogs need can be influenced by several factors like its size, and how much exercise it gets. Luckily, there is a rule you can adopt. Dogs usually need about one fluid ounce per pound of bodyweight.
It’s normal and healthy if your dog drinks slightly less than the recommended water intake, especially if your dog has been less active of recent. However, if your dog is still drinking less than the recommended amount after crunching the numbers, then it’s possible something is wrong with your pet.
If you are still not sure whether your dog is taking the recommended amount of water, then you need to check for other signs or symptoms of dehydration, such as lethargy, dry mouth, sunken eyes, and depression.

WHY DOGS STOP DRINKING WATER?
Often, an injury inside or near the dog’s mouth could be a reason your dog refuses to drink water. Dogs are big chewing fans, especially tough objects to satisfy their chew urge. So, it’s very possible for wood chunks, rock or plastic to end up grinding around the inside of your dog’s mouth, inflicting small injuries that can cause pain when they want to drink. Also, your pet may not want to drink because of damaged teeth.
Anxiety and nerves can also lead to loss of appetite and thirst in pets. These emotions are sometimes connected to a change in lifestyle or environments, including unfamiliar faces in the home or new pets. Your dog can also be anxious if a family member is absent. In most scenarios, dogs quickly adapt to these changes by themselves, developing desires to drink and eat after a few days. Furthermore, susceptible dogs may require additional assistance to cool off and get well.
Your dog may be less willing to drink water due to changes in the water. Your dog can make a big deal over a minor difference in smell or taste of water. For instance, your dog might not be willing to drink city water because it’s more comfortable or used to well water. And if this is what you are facing, you can help your dog familiarize with the change by mixing some bottled water into their dish.
The next step to take an irrespective look on why your dog stopped drinking water is to visit your local vet. They can tell what’s wrong with your pet after examining it and recommend how to resolve your dog’s drinking problem. It’s important you visit a vet if your pet has an injury in the mouth that’s refusing to heal on time. Even if you feel your dog will get back to normal after a short while, visiting a vet is still a good idea.
So focus on keeping your pet hydrated till you see a vet.

PERSUADING YOUR DOG TO DRINK WATER
Luckily for you, there are some techniques you can apply to keep your pet hydrated when it refuses to drink water.
First, you can add some fresh water to your pet’s food dish. Most dogs are more interested in eating so they can get water into their system through this method.
You could get a Perpetual Well an Automatic dog water bowl to ensure your dog has constant access to a fresh, filtered bowl of water.
Another way to keep your dog hydrated is by giving them some watery treats. Surprisingly, a lot of dogs love ice cubes. You can also give them fruits like seedless watermelon, blueberries, and apples; these fruits contain substantial amounts of water too. Veggies like carrots and cucumbers are also good alternatives. Note that not all vegetables and fruits are healthy for your pets. Just so you know, onions and grapes are really poisonous to dogs.
You can also persuade your dog to stay hydrated by preparing broth with a small amount of chicken or beef. Not all dogs have the power to say no to or refuse a tasty meal; only a few can – well-disciplined pets. Make sure any meal you prepare for your dog should not contain garlic, onion or any other dangerous ingredients.
The unfortunate thing about this technique is that it will not work if your dog does not have an appetite for food. Do not give up if your dog refuses to eat. Keep offering your dog food, clean water and make sure you see a vet as soon as possible.

MEETING WITH YOUR VETERINARIAN
Your vet can identify why your dog is refusing to drink water. They will also recommend tricks that can restore your dog’s drink habit. Ensure you stick to their advice and provide honest answers to questions asked so they can diagnose the cause accurately and provide an accurate treatment plan.
That’s all! Your best friend should be back in perfect condition within a short period. Furthermore, ensure you keep track of your dog’s drinking and eating habits and if you notice any irregularities, contact your vet as soon as possible.

Never Let Your Cat or Dog Go Thirsty Again with Perpetual Well, the World’s First Automatic, Self-Filling & Self-Draining Pet Water Bowl!

Reasons to get a Perpetual Well for your dog

Are you a dog owner? If yes, then you must sometimes feel a little lazy when its time to fill and drain the water bowl for your dog. However, you may want to do everything for you little furry buddy and you may go to any extent to take care of them as they are the part of your family. But there are times when the hustle and bustle of the day to day life may make you unintentionally neglect the need of your dog. Moreover, when you are out at work or parties, your dog may want some fresh water in order to end his thirst. You probably consider the automatic dog waterer or the automatic water bowl, however, nothing does it better than Perpetual Well does.

Perpetual well:
Perpetual Well is an automatic dog waterer that was developed by Dave Dinger. He came up with the invention because his dog Shadow was experiencing extreme thirst as a result of medication and he was unable to provide constant access to fresh water for his dog.

That is why he searched for the automatic water bowls but felt discouraged from the ones that were on the market as they were cheaply made. Then Dave decided that he must take the matters in his own hands and considered designing custom and his own automatic dog waterer. Dave struggled for several years while developing a number of prototypes and after numerous trial and error efforts, Perpetual Well was born.

Here are the reasons for which you must consider getting a Perpetual Well for your dog.

1. Convenience:
The benefits of the Perpetual Well are extended to the owner as well as the dog. This is because it promises lifetime convenience by only getting it quickly and easily installed one time for the entire life. You are provided with extreme ease and convenience by having the Perpetual Well because one chore of the dog that you had to do otherwise is reduced.

2. Freshwater:
Getting a Perpetual Well for your dog will end your worries about whether your dog has a clean and fresh bowl of water or not. The dog will also enjoy and love the new and reliable source of fresh and clean drinking water. The dog will also be able to hydrate himself whenever he wants. The Perpetual Well provides fresh, clean and filtered water 24/7 for your dog. This way, there will be no germs that enter in your dog’s system through the water. Fresh and clean water is extremely important for the health of the dogs.

3. A constant stream of water:
The perpetual well will provide a steady and constant stream of water for your dog. Dogs love running water and they actively seek it out. The design of this automatic dog waterer ensures that your dog will never run out of the water. If you have outdoor dogs or a house dog, the Perpetual Well will save you time while making your life easier. Your dog will never be thirsty again and the running water also adds to the purity of water.

4. Reduction of bacteria formation:
If the dog water bowl is full of stagnant water, then you must know that the dog is ingesting bacteria every time he comes to drink the water. Serratia Marcescens is one of the bacteria that is developed in the form of pinkish pathogen due to spores in the air. If you do not wash the bowl every day then this bacterium will definitely sicken your dog. The benefit that perpetual well provides is that it keeps the water running which prevents building up of bacteria. However, you still have to clean the bowls but it is easier to clean as well as dishwasher safe that will save your time, energy and reduces the stress.

5. Prevent dog hijinks:
Dogs are lovable but they can sometimes be goofy and nasty. Do you have a dog that stands in the water dish? Does he like to root and dig in the water bowl? If so then you must consider Perpetual Well because it prevents leaks as well as overflows and can be mounted up so that it remains away from the curious pets.

6. Easy installation:
Another reason for which you should consider Perpetual well as the only automatic dog waterer you need because it is extremely easy to install. Moreover, there are videos available that define the clear and easy directions of the installation. In addition to that, the water filters are also easier to replace once they get dirty. In a glance, the perpetual well is what you need to ease your life and provide your dog with fresh and clear water.

7. Secure and replaceable:
The perpetual well is incredibly safe to use because it is made with BPA free and human safe materials. Moreover, it will last with you forever because all of its parts are replaceable which can easily be changed once they get damaged.

8. Self- filling and draining:
The self-fill, as well as self-draining feature of the Perpetual well, is exceptional and nothing is like it. Once you install it and it starts to work, there is nothing that you have to worry about. You just have to sit back and relax because it will do all the filling and draining of the water itself. The perpetual well fills the filtered water and once it gets dirty it drains it out. This reduces a lot of work that you had to do earlier. You will be satisfied that your dog is consuming fresh water that is free from bacteria.
Perpetual well will not only ease your life but also increase the health and immunity of your dog. If your dog faces extreme thirst and you are not able to provide him with fresh water due to late working hours or any other activities then you must have a Perpetual Well installed in your house. It will keep you and your dog happy.

Officially launched on KickStater

Perpetual Well, the World’s first pet watering system that is self-filling and self-draining, officially launched its crowdfunding campaign today on Kickstarter.

Perpetual Well is permanently installed and provides unlimited fresh filtered drinking water for your pet. Perpetual Well was designed to solve the problem of providing a constant source of clean drinking water.

“The Perpetual Well was created out of necessity. My black lab Shadow was on medication that made him drink constantly”, said Dave Dinger, inventor of the Perpetual Well. “I would often find his bowl empty, and I knew I had to do something about it. After doing much research, I realized nothing existed that would fit the bill. So I went work and years later we finally have Perpetual Well.”

“Perpetual Well is patent pending. The design, materials, and labor that goes into manufacturing the Perpetual Well are substantial,” said Brad Jordan, CFO of Perpetual Well. “The Perpetual Well is being made in the USA and the time savings of this watering system makes the cost worth every cent!”.

Perpetual Well is available for pre-ordering starting September 26 through October 26. During the Kickstarter campaign, the Perpetual Well can be pre-ordered starting at $149 which is a 40% savings over the retail price.
