Hello, my dog's name is Otis. He is only a year old. Recently, he has been very sick. He threw up once and had yellow diarrhea for a few days. I have fed him rice since I read that it helps. I checked his gums and the whites of his eyes, but they are normal. He has not had water or anything to drink for several days, so I have resorted to regurgitating water into his mouth. I can't afford to give him an IV, how do I get him to drink water? He seems very energetic and playful; however, he has only been eating rice for the past few days (i am making chicken for him to get some protein for him), I fear he may become dehydrated if I can't find a way to make him drink water without force.
