Very caring chi mum! But i don't really know how necessary it is. If you're worried about stuff in tap water you could always filter it. Ruby has filtered water most of the time because we always have it on hand for ourselves.

i'm not sure of the difference... chiwi gets filtered water at home and i bring spring water with us when we are out. i encountered a close minded person once when i was giving chiwi her water and she was like "bottled water? it's a dog" and she rolled her eyes. so i went with it, i said oh you have to be kidding, nothing but evian for my baby. and i said it with a snooty type attitude....

We all drink Brita filtered water here, pets as well as we humans. I also keep single-sized bottles of water on hand to take along when I'm out running errands. :)

Hehe...Seiah drinks Aquafina or Sparkletts. Seiah always has a bottle of water around, one in Ash's car...one next to his pen...and one at work. It's sad really, if we run out of water we drink tap, but not Seiah...oh no Seiah always has bottled water around :roll: ...LOL.

Ive heard that drinking lots of mineral water can cause kidney stones in people when the minerals build up. Duno if it affects animals the same way :?

A lot of tap water is perfectly safe for human consumption. Our water company gives us a list of what our water contains and what percentage. We have arsenic and many other things in our tap water that the EPA says is safe in small amouts. My concern is the size of our Chis. What is safe for a 150 pound human may not be safe in such small pets. I'm no chemist, so this is just my opinion. :)
