Hi all!

So I have a concern.

This might seem stupid, but marshmallow has been just chewing on her bottle's nozzle thing but hasn't been drinking!

I checked the bottle, and it's working, and I even switched her and lotis' bottle and lotis is drinking just fine from it, but marshmallow still isn't drinking!

I marked where the water was in the morning, and when I checked before I went to bed, it was The same!

She has been very inactive, but I think that's from the lack of hydration

Can anyone help?

Should I just bring her to the vet?

Is she still eating alright? Does she have any other abnormal behaviors going?
I know water bowls tend to get messy with piggies, but have you tried seeing if she'll drink out of one? It might be worth the try in case she does.

Hi, sorry just saw this.

She seems to be eating fine, we got her some hydrating food (Don't ask me how lol) and she eating ok.


As far as a water bowl goes, we can try it, but she is petrified of water. I mean hey, it's worth a shot!
