What’s In Your Pet’s Water Bowl?

Is Tap Water Making Your Furbaby Sick? The tap water in your pet’s water bowl can affect the health of your dog or cat, especially if they’re susceptible to urinary infections. That’s right. There is a correlation between hard water and urinary health issues in pets, states the webzine Dogs Naturally, based on the study by Trupanion, a veterinary medical insurance company.

I’ve got the WORST water EVER!

PFAS- What does it mean to you?

 There have been a lot of concerns raised in recent months surrounding the topic of PFAS. Especially considering there were raised levels found right here in some of our own backyards. So, what is it and should we all be concerned?  PFAS stands for Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. Unless you happen to be a scientist that probably means as much to you, as it does to me.
