My dog is afraid of his water bowl?
I have a 4 year old St. Bernard, Kodiak, who has been on pain medication for the last two weeks. About a week ago, he stopped going anywhere near his water bowl. With his limp, we assumed that maybe it was the location of the bowl, and it was too hard to get to. If we bring the bowl to him, he moves away from it. We can get him to drink from a spray bottle, from a large oral syringe, or from a different bowl.
Has anyone ever seen this sort of behavior in a dog before?
