So... this is completely random, I know. But I’m gonna shoot my shot. My bearded dragon will NOT drink water no matter what. She just really don’t like anything that doesn’t have taste. So, I thought, do you guys think a bearded dragon can drink Propel, or flavored water? It has no sugar.

Hello,

What are the ingredients of Propel, I haven't looked at a label lately? I am pretty sure it
should be ok, in small amounts. Pedialyte is used for them, so Propel should be alright.
What type of sweetener is in it?

It should be ok, but I don't think it will have the intended result you are looking for.

I'm not sure dragons have the same taste preferences as humans. So while sweet flavored drinks might entice humans to drink water, it might not have the same effect on dragons. What methods have you tried to use to get your dragon to drink already? Some dragons will very rarely drink, especially if they get ample moisture from their salads and prey. It's always beneficial to get them to drink a little extra if they need it, but unless your dragon is dehydrated, I'd probably er away from flavoring the water as a method.
Just my thoughts though. :)

Charlie rarely drinks water but he shows no signs of dehydration. I usually make sure to rinse his greens or give him a wetter type of vegetable -- his current obsession is red bell peppers -- and he seems to do fine.

Omg I totally forgot that drink existed.
I remember when I was little my dad showed me a trick where you just squirt the bottle (it was the twisty-cap) into your mouth from like a foot away. I miss those drinks.
