If you notice your pet is not drinking the tap water from his bowl but drinks from another questionable source such as the toilet bowl or muddy water puddle, you might question your tap water and switch to bottled water. The smell of the chlorine in the tap water can be very strong which makes your pet sensitive to it and will turn them away.
If you are considering purchasing a filter, it would be helpful to do your research. Common charcoal filters do not remove fluoride. A better option may be looking for bottled water that is not chlorinated or fluoridated; however, keep in mind that bottled water doesn't necessarily translate into safe. In an estimated 25 percent or more cases, bottled water is simply tap water in a bottle according to the #Natural Resources Defense Council.
And if your considering a vacation with your pet, bring along bottled water. Water varies from place to place and you want your pet happy, healthy, and safe! There are different types of travel bowls you can purchase that expand and collapse for easier transport as well.
