    Default FYI - Just some info sharing regarding Water

    So some of you on my facebook may remember awhile back that just when we moved to another house in early March Nigel began having diarrhea issues and accidents (luckily not on the carpet). Well I wanted to share in case others have similar issues - it's always hard to pinpoint causes of our bully issues.
    When he started having these issues and I knew we hadn't changed food but I was aware that our water changed - we had hard water in the previous house and the water here has a softener. Well I decided to get him some water from the filtered Glacier machine at Randall's and he got better and hasn't had any further issues. I use our milk gallons to refill and if I can't buy the water then I'll take one to work and get water from the breakroom filtered water machine. I'm so glad he got better and of course don't mind the extra steps cause I love him so. It's just weird cause Karly was not affected and she's usually the sensitive one.

    Sending love to all my bully families!


    Cheerio mates!

    Hi, that's great that you figured out the source of the diarrhea, and thanks for sharing this information. It is so true that sometimes it's really hard to pinpoint just what is causing reactions, illness, or symptoms in our bullies. Many wouldn't have thought of water as a source of diarrhea, good job mommy. My daughter had a water softener in her old house, that was put in place by the builder, as they also had hard water. They were notified and advised not to drink the water from the soft water tap, because the chemicals used to soften the water are a known carcinogen, and also there is a lot of sodium in soft water. Another tip I find helpful when determining what our bullies are allergic or sensitive to is to add one new food, treat, or supplement at a time, and by itself, so if there is some kind of a reaction, you will know right away what caused it.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    That's good that you have worked out what was giving him diarrhoea and can now be remedied

    Going from hard water to soft water…i think i would've been baffled as to what was going on. Good job Sally in figuring out what the problem was!

    Wow what a great job figuring that out. I would never had even thought about the hard water issue. I refuse to give Buster tap water as I know that there's so much added stuff in it. He only gets bottled water always has and always will.
