I've been noticing that my rat won't drink out of her bottle. I was wondering, could she drink out of a dish? Or would she just tip it? Any help is much appreciated.
The bottle works, as I see my other girls drink from it. I'm sure she COULD drink from a bottle, she just REFUSES to.Why do you think your rat can't drink from the bottle? Is the bottle not working properly? Do you see your other rats drinking from the bottle?
Thank you, Amanda, yes, she is fine, I guess I was just being paranoid. I didn't need to refill the bottle for 3 1/2 weeks, so I guess that's what worries me. But yes, she is drinking.I have a water bottle for my babies which they do fine with but I found a hooded bird food bowl that clips onto the cage and they love drinking out of that way more than the bottle. The hood prevents them from getting the water dirty and is easy to take on and off for cleaning/filling! Rats get dehydrated easily but if your girl is fine she is most likely drinking.. just maybe when you’re not looking?
