Water: one of the major causes of digestive problems in dogs

You might be interested to know that water can be one of the major causes of digestive problems for pets. When a dog or cat drink, bacteria in their mouth will drip and down and can contaminate their drinking water. Within hours these bacteria can grow to the ¬†point where they pose a risk to the animal’s digestive tract. Make sure you clean the bowl and change your pet’s water twice a day. Also use the largest bowl you can find.
Food is often blamed for a dog’s ‘sensitive’ stomach, and rightly so. However, if you are feeding a quality food (without by-products or fillers) it is less likely the food – could it be the water?
