If you are drinking well water and are not sick, it's probably the food. If food isn't reported bad, there can be numerous bags out there that are bad, just nobody has reported or put two and two together.
As to water, we test our well bi-weekly, it's free through the municipality - now we have a finicky well, across the street at the community center they have a commercial kitchen and only require monthly testing - overkill on our part, but directly North of us is a series of inland lakes and the Trent-Severn water system, where it's man-made control of the canals, I read the regional website daily, so know when a boil advisory is in place - but so many people do not. Plus, how many are sick before they advise LOL.

My guess is it is the food. I use well water, and so far no problems in ten/eleven years with the well. I have treated it with bleach at least once. But, personally, I think you will get as many bacteria and problems with bottled water/spring water as you will with well water. In ten/eleven years I spent $400 on my well to replace the pump. I would spend more than 40$/week if I started feeding my dogs spring water.
I have had some problems with food, and switching the food has cleared them up.
Wells are filtered by the water going into the ground and then seeping into your well. Unless you have a ton of cattle or something polluting your well water, I think it is every bit as safe as anything you can buy at the store.

|Carriesue||I don't know what it is but I've never had good luck feeding Fromm, Ollie has never done well on it... Gets soft mushy stool, his coat got really dull and flaky even on the fish formula, lost weight and was itching up a storm. One of my other dogs started having really bad eye drainage as well so sadly as much as I want to like the food I don't think I'll be feeding any longer. He's on Dr. Tim's Momentum right now and I've already seen a huge improvement in his coat. Have you tried any pre and probiotics?|

i think we're going to get a system for our water line so
all of the water in house is treated. i don't know what
type of system it's going to be. i have to do some research.
