Ok, so am I a bad mommy or just inexperienced? I had to find a new groomer for Baxter and I really like her. Baxter was very relaxed and she did a (good) job but she had asked me not to feed or give fluids to Baxter the day of the grooming. His appointment was at 2:00 p.m.This lady said she went to two years of pre-med and worked for a vet for many years but decided she did not like the medical part, so she started a grooming business and she has a great business. I was only able to get Baxter in because of the passing of one of her dog clients.So I'm thinking she is pretty knowlegable but I hate with holding fluid and food from Baxter all day. The problem was I allowed Baxter water 2 hours prior to the appointment and took him to potty but during the grooming session she said he had to potty ALOT!!Sorry about the rambling, my question is she told me not to give him over 1/4 cup of water per day every day. I leave a bowl out for Baxter all day! We are potty training and he is about 85-90% trained, and occasional accident especially when nervous. Should I only give him a 1/4 cup water per day???
