dog: was spayed yesterday and she wont drink any water

Resolved Question:

My dog was spayed yesterday and she won't drink any water. She will eat, she will devour a can of food within a couple of minutes, but she won't drink. Is this normal?

Hi Marie,


If she is eating canned food it is 70% water so she may not need to drink additional water.You can add some water to her food if you want to increase her fluids.


As long as she is eating she is fine so please dont worry.


Please let me know how she is later.


I hope she will be fine.


Have a wonderful holiday season,
