bailey is a very skittish doggie. she is afraid of most things. lately, she has been afraid to drink water and i don’t know why. she'll start drinking, then she’ll jump back in a fright. we have been holding her little behind while she drinks just to help soothe her and it does seem to help a little. we haven’t changed her water bowl, so it’s not that she’s afraid of a new bowl. have any of y'all ever experienced anything like this with your fur baby?
until we meet again my friends-
Have you had her sweet little eyes checked? She may be having some kind of age related vision changes that are causing the problem. Try changing her water bowl to a matte finish that will also not reflect the water back. Keep us posted on how she is doing and what you find out. I !ove Bailey as if she were my own.ReplyDelete
At least you're there to help herReplyDelete
Perhaps she sees her shadow in the water and that scares her or a reflection from somewhere.ReplyDelete
Awww, poor pup. I used to be afraid of more things, but not water.ReplyDelete
bayoubijou said exactly what I was going to. My daughter's dog didn't like the metal shiny bowl at his house for some reason, but would wolf down his food at my house where his bowl was matte cream and red ceramic...ReplyDelete
