• I just got a puppy, and even though the breeder suggested that regular tap water was fine for her, I would prefer to give he bottled water. Is this okay?

    Many people prefer to give their pet’s bottled water instead of tap water these days. In many parts of the country, not only does the bottled water taste better, but it can actually be healthier for them.

    A good general rule is, if you are not comfortable drinking the tap water yourself, it might be a good idea to give your pet the same bottled water that you are drinking. If you notice that your pet seems to like it more, that is also a good indication that you made a wise choice.
