Default Re: Adult syrian water consumption

Is she very old? Their water consumption increases a lot when they get older due to failing kidneys- they also pee more. I would let her drink as much as she wants- so if she will drink it from a teaspoon or syringe, just keep filling it up till she doesn’t want any more. If she is old and not very well/not drinking independently, it may be that she is reaching her time and end of life. If she is not old then I hope the vet solves the issue. Old is anything from 18 months onwards. At two they are the equivalent of an 80 year old human.
