This has been brought to my attention recently, and I wanted to share with you the informaion that I have found regarding our Pet's drinking water bowls. There are a lot of things in the average household that could make your Pet sick. Of course, as a loving owner you do your best to keep your pet safe from them. But believe it or not, a common part of their daily routine could be a source of illness. It's something that they need every day but can easily do more harm than good.
I'm talking about water, of course. Standing water quickly harbor dust, bad smells and bacteria that makes it unattractive to pets. Because of that, most pets simply don't drink enough water. When they are thirsty some Pets can get very creative, including turning on faucets and even drinking out of toilets (yuck!). You can prevent these behaviors by providing your Pet with a constant source of clean, fresh water. This is crucial because the vast majority of Pets simply don't drink enough water to stay healthy. Dehydration can lead to health problems and when they come up, they can get severe quite quickly.
Your Pet is more likely to drink adequate water when it tastes and smells good, and running water is naturally enticing to cats. The best way to give your cat fresh, clean running water every day is to use a pet fountain. You might think that fresh water 24/7 is expensive and difficult to maintain, but it's actually the opposite!t has been said that our pets water bowls can make them sick. Even though we clean them regularly, but the porous bowls or ceramic bowls apparently contain pores that can obsorb bacteria, which in turn can make our pets sick. It has been suggested we use stainless steel bowls for there water bowls.
