As a veterinarian I am concerned about the quality and safety of drinking water people provide for their animal companions. Older animals who drink more water because of kidney and other health issues, and cats who may be finicky drinkers and not maintain adequate hydration especially when fed an all-dry food, are of special concern. Water purification is needed to remove pollutants in most water supplies anywhere in the world (for details see my article “Pure Water for Cats and Dogs — and All” posted on my website www.drfoxvet.net).
The most effective water-purification methods, such as reverse-osmosis and distillation, and filter systems like Zero Water remove not only contaminants but also minerals from water, including essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium that are normally present in drinking water in electrolyte form – these mineral electrolytes are needed for optimal hydration. It is for these reasons that I put a few drops of EMDROPS in our filtered, purified drinking water for my family, including our animals.
