Question
why do plants need water?

Answer
Your question has nothing to do with dogs.

However.... every living thing in our world requires water in order to survive. Without it, we dehydrate, we shrivel up and die... particularly plants which are composed of 90% water. Plants use water to help absorb the minerals they need from the soil. Water also creates energy for them, and it helps to strengthen their stems and leaves.

Expertise

I have been showing miniature schnauzers in conformation, obedience, and earthdog for forty years, and am a professional dog groomer. I am not a veterinarian and cannot answer questions of a veterinary nature. However, I can give my opinion or share some experiences on some health issues. Everyone should remember that this is a volunteer service, and few of us are up late into the night. Medical emergencies require a veterinary visit, or at least a telephone call... not an internet question which might not be viewed and answered until hours later. If your dog is sick or injured, it should be seen by a licensed professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Experience

I have taught obedience classes and have taught people how to groom for many years.
