    Default Drinking water conundrum

    What kind of water do you all give your bullys? I've always given mine regular tap water but lately, Tate's skin around his eyes have been more red than usual and his wrinkly folds on his face are also redder. I've been reading that tap water contains elements that may be contributing to skin problems in bulldogs particularly and it's been recommended to have them drink bottled or filtered or purified water.

    Anyone have experience(s) with this? I'm willing to make the switch if this will help with Tate's tear stains.

    I use a Zero Water pitcher for me & Arwen - the water here is almost undrinkable, and that's not an exaggeration.

    Just remember that 98.34% of all people will make up statistics 86.27% of the time that lean towards their own opinion by at least 51%. Of course I'm not 100% sure about that...

    tap water...


    When Jack was ill last week, thinking it was an upset stomach a family member told me to drop a cut lemon inside his water Jug.

    I wonder if lemon juice (citric) is bad for dogs ?

    We give them filtered water, we have a whole house filter. Don't like the chlorine.

    I use PUR filter on my sink faucet. I even got the one with the flavor - you press a button and a squirt of flavor gets added to the water. I love it. All my pets except the fish drink this water. It's not too expensive either - you can get a 2-pack of replacement filters at Target for $25. And, each filter lasts quite a while (over 3 months) even when it's my main source of drinking water for me and the pets. I don't like drinking cold water from the fridge door.

    It's worth the investment, I think.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    +1 on zero water filtered water for Lucy. That or bottled water. I never gave her tap water so I don't have any real life experience on this for comaprrison--but friends of mine swear that when they switched to filtered water (from tap) they saw amazing improvements on tear stains. Can't hurt to try. Plus if you invest in a zero system (or something like it) it s really pretty cheap. (cheaper than bottled water)

    Hello,

    To update this thread and get some new info..........

    What type of water to you give your Bulldog?

    Tap
    Filtered
    Purified
    R.O.

    Curently I am using just tap water from the outside faucet. With 8 bulldogs I need to have (2) 3-gal buckets outside so they have plenty to drink from.
    I want to get something to filter out minerals, hard water. Where I live is from well water that is VERY hard and very full of minerals and uky (yes...real word) taste.

    Good Day~
