• I have hard water. Is this ok to give to my kitten or should I give him filtered water? I have a Brit’s water pitcher. I have been giving him the hard water but I started to think about it

    Hi Jennifer,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this. Most kitten and cats will do just fine on the local water. However,  this can depend on the amount and type pf the minerals present in the water. Your vet knows your local area and they can give you the best advice on this.

Need more information or advice?
