    not a major issue (i think) but thought i would ask anyway.

    stan hasnt been drinking and i was wondering if it is because he is getting enough from his food, only his food is being changed so i want to make sure it isnt a problem. i have put down bottled water incase its the taste of our water (its not very nice) but hes still not drinking very much

    You feeding raw?
    If so probably getting enough ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You can always measure how much you put in his bowl over 24hrs and work out how much of it he has drunk, may be more than you think. Mine drink rain water while out in the garden as they prefer it ๐Ÿ™‚

    So long as his poos are normal and not rock hard he will be fine ;D
    If they are dehydrated when you pinch the skin it is slow at going back ๐Ÿ˜‰

    If he’s peeing OK then he must be getting enough water ;D
