Hi there- I wonder if Sammi may have been given fluids along wit her prednisone shot while she was at the hospital. If she did receive fluids, she will not be thirsty for a while. Have you offered her any dog food, or only the foods you mentioned? Does she have an appetite for her regular food? You can add some water in with the food you have been giving her to make sure she stays hydrated. Usually as long as a pet is eating, we can get them to take in water with the food. Also- when pets are on steroids like prednisone- this usually makes them very thirsty. That's what makes me wonder if she did receive some fluids at the hospital. Please let me know if further questions arise- I will be online intermittently throughout the day!
How is Sami doing?
