Hi all - This may seem like a ludicrous question, but to me it’s a matter of -literally- life and death.
My black lab Tara has been diagnosed with cancer. My regular vet has given up, and I am now trying a holistic approach. The remedies seem to work, but the main concern is that Tara doesn’t eat or drink enough. I’m trying to measure the amount that she actually drinks, but it is hard to gauge by the water level in her bowl, and measuring out the water doesn’t work well either because she will only drink from the same bowl.
I have resorted to counting the times she laps up water - as in “64 laps this morning” and “80 laps at night”.
This measure is useless unless I can determine how much water she picks up with each lap of her tongue.
Any insight or suggestions?
