I have a pit bull mix called Gizmo who drinks his own urine all day long. I think he drinks it to avoid the smell.
I know some people who use this to their advantage. Gizmo drinks it to make sure he doesn’t get sick from the smell. But, if you let him get too far ahead of you, he’ll just drink it all down.
For some reason, Gizmo has a lot of trouble sleeping at night. It’s not like he is a puppy. He’s way older than that. The reason for this may be due to a substance called melatonin. Melatonin is actually a hormone that helps the body regulate circadian rhythms. It has anti-inflammatory, vasodilatory, and sedative properties. Dogs have melatonin receptors on their brain, which makes them more susceptible to melatonin.
Melatonin is also found in our bodies, so for some reason Gizmo doesn’t want to get enough. He must have been drinking enough to make him really sleepy. We need the sleep. In the end, we have to figure out how to stop him from getting it.
The solution is to make Gizmo sleep. That means getting the dog to drink his own urine. That’s what Gizmo needs to do. It’s hard to believe, but there is a certain smell to urine that makes it hard for some people to digest. Since dogs make their own urine, we can turn it into a drug to get Gizmo to sleep and enjoy his new-found freedom.
How exactly do we do that? I have no idea, but you can try. I think it does the trick. I just don’t know for sure. The first step is to remove the existing urine collection system by breaking apart the bladder, removing the bladder from the dog, and then putting the bladder back together. Then we can put the urine into a cup with some water and a spoon.
This is a common problem for dog owners, but I think it can be fixed with a little bit of patience. I have done this several times as I have worked with my dogs to eliminate the problem. The key is to get into a position where you can see the urine coming from the animal (and make sure your dog knows where the urine is coming from) and then patiently wait for your dog to take the urine.
I am not a dog owner, so I can’t give a direct answer to this, but the dog owners in my town were doing this all the time for years. I have seen them put the urine in a bowl and then pour it over the dog’s back, and after about five minutes the dog starts to urinate. The dog owner is then told to give the dog more water and hope the dog doesn’t pee on her.
I did not know this before, but dogs are usually very cautious about peeing on people, so this may not be too common. That’s fine though because the dog owner will likely ignore the warning and just keep on pouring the urine over the dog.
I know you may not know this, but many dogs do not like the taste of urine. The reason for this is that the body is made to drink it, but when you have to drink it like this your body decides you dont want it. To make things worse, the urine is usually made from the same kind of water that the dog eats, which has a very similar taste to urine.
