Should my pet be drinking filtered water?

Nearly every pet parent fills their pet’s water bowl straight from the faucet without even thinking twice about it. But it may be time to consider the dangers of using tap water to hydrate our furry loved ones. Read on to learn more. 

What is so wrong with tap water?

It’s important to remember that our natural, human senses may not be able to detect most of the contaminants in tap water. The Water Quality Associated even says that it may take years to realize a problem exists ( The WQA lists these common waterborne contaminants:

These contaminants may increase risk for cancer, reproductive problems and impair major organ function in our pets. Filtered water remove these contaminates and reduces the health risks associated with drinking tap water. 

Could there be parasites in my faucet water?

Yes, parasites have been found in tap water around the world including the United States. One of these parasites is Giardia and lives in the mucous lining of the intestines. Parasites are unwanted guests for all pets but especially for younger puppies and kittens.
