Hey Everyone!

I am visiting my parents house for Thanksgiving and I brought my dog, Jax.

My parent's dog (skylar) has a chipped tooth that formed an abscess.. She as a dental appointment at the vet to get it taken care of early next week.

Is is safe for Jax to drink water out of the same bowl as Skylar? I want to make sure he will not get sick from any bacteria that is causing Skylars abscess.

I know that Jax will not develop an abscess from sharing water with skylar. I am more concerned with him getting a systemic infection from exposure of the bacteria to his GI tract.

(** Side-Note- thankfully skylar is in no apparent sign of distress and is acting like her normal fun playful self.) I just want to make sure that Jax will not get sick from sharing water and toys with her.

Thank you all so much!

She's already been to a vet and is currently on antibiotics. She also has per pre-op and operation dates scheduled.

Not what I meant.

Call the Vet to ask about the 2 dogs sharing a water bowl and getting a systemic infection.
