Water and Your Pets - Chemicals in Water
Find out What Could Be in the Water You and Your Pets are Drinking...
The last time you got your pet some water, did you crack open a bottle of water or did you fill up their bowl straight from the tap?  Did you know that either one of these could be harming your beloved furry
companion?  The bottled water is most likely very acidic, which creates a breeding ground for disease & discomfort, and the tap water is most likely loaded with chlorine, lye and other potentially harmful
chemicals. Check out the list below.
 
Just like people, our animal companions need fresh, clean, healthy water in order to stay at the top of their game.  Did you know that pets are developing debilitating and even fatal diseases and issues at an alarming rate?  These include diabetes, arthritis and weight problems, just to name a few.

Many pets are feeling great by drinking ionized water.  If you have a pet that could use a boost in energy or has a condition that has their tail wagging a little bit less, get some FREE samples of ionized water and see if it helps them out.  Otherwise, man's best friend might have to reevaluate just who their best friend really is!
 
All public water systems contain some level of one or more unhealthful chemicals. Regulations only require periodic testing of about 86 toxic chemicals. There are now more than 75,000 chemicals used in our society with more than 1,000 new ones being developed each year.  So far, more than 2,100 toxic chemicals of the more than 75,000 patented chemical compounds in use today have been detected in America's water systems. Some of the most common toxins in tap water from the condensed EPA's safe water guidelines are listed below:
