Question about Water

A while back my dog got sick and I started to filter his water. I was shocked when I started to ask around and found out how many people do filter their dogs water. Keep in mind I live North of Seattle where we have very good water. I was laffed off another forum, because as one poster said "my dogs drink out of puddles and they are fine" and on and on. Well that isn't my concern, it is all the crap they put in water, chlorine and fluoride to begine with. Anyway do you filter your dogs water??

No, we do not filter their water. We have our own well and the only filtering done is to take the sediment out.

Same here. We have a private well and there are no additives such as chlorine and fluoride in our water.

But if we did have city water we probably would filter the water.

We have a water/ice dispenser on our fridge and he get the filtered water from there. He does however get tap water occasionally if I am in a rush and can't wait for the water from the fridge to fill the bowl up.....

No filter water. They get it straight from the tap nice and cold.

No filtered water here. I'm on a well, very nice, clean water. Dogs are welcome to drink from outdoor puddles - if they can handle bear poop and carion, they can handle puddle water.

We live in a rural area and have a well. We don't filter our water. However, I don't let my dogs drink from the ditches, as I worry about run off contaminations.

My dogs drink out of the horse troughs, they also swim in them and prefer to stand up and drink out of them over the buckets of clean water I have strategically located all over the yard for them, they even prefer to drink out of the bird baths! I stop them when I catch them, but the point being, dogs are dogs.
