Is bottled water or tap water better for your dog?
It depends on the quality of your tap water. In some areas the tap water tastes so bad people prefer to give their dogs filtered water. If you wouldn't drink the water yourself, consider filtering your pet's water as well.
When traveling, sudden changes in water can cause diarrhea in pets. Using bottled water standardizes what they are drinking so you can avoid this complication.
Here is more advice:
- Bottled water is accually cleaner, but with the price of it, tap water is fine. As long as it's clean.
- actually tap water is more healthy and actually cleaner so give your dog tap water because bottled can hurt your dogs digestive system.
- Bottled water is better; tap water contains chemicals and rust in it that can be harmful to any animal.
- If you have clean or filtered tap water, use tap water. If you go somewhere with your dog, you may want to bring some water from home or use bottled water that is similar to your water. either is probably fine as long as it's clean.
- Considering that most dogs eagerly drink from ponds, puddles, and toilets with the seat left up (and usually with absolutely no ill effects) why worry?
- why would you care if it was that big of deal then i would go with the bottled water because its fresh cleaned tap water so really it doesnt matter</nowiki>
- If the tap water isn't brown and it's clean, use that!
A good rule of thumb is that if is safe for you it is safe for them.
If you can't tell if your water is clean or tastes good enough, just like I said, It is better in different areas. for example, places where it is moist and rains alot, usually your water tastes better. If your in a dry place, such as the desert, your water might not be as good because they had to dig deep to get it.
Bottled water does not provide the reliable purity that is popularly thought. There have been thousands of tests of the purity of tap water from different sources and thousands of tests of the purity of different versions of bottled water. The results show the the best tap water sources are better than many bottled water sources and many bottled water sources are no better than good quality tap water. Bottled water is not required to…
In the United States, tap water is held to stricter purity standards than bottled water. Also, it takes a lot of energy and water to transport bottled water, and the bottles are often thrown away instead of recycled. For that reason, in most circumstances, tap water is better than bottled water. You can buy an inexpensive reusable bottle to carry water with you.
Depends on what company you're comparing tap water to. But most bottled water companies use filtered water (the same as tap water). In most cases bottled water is not purer than tap water. Note that tap water is not the same everywhere, not are all brands of bottled water the same. But legal requirements for water purity are the same for tap water as for bottled water. In some cases, bottled water actually is tap…
It all depends on where you live. if you live in a country/rural area the tap water is most likely from a well or storage facility in the area. The water is not as well treated as city water so bottled water is better because it is cleaner and better for your health. In the city its all the same thing.
Yes, bottled water is usually healthier than tap water. Bottled water runs through all kinds of filters and purification processes before getting into the bottle, while tap water only runs through one, solitary filter before going into your glass. Actually, contrary to your beliefs, tap water is more beneficial than bottled water. Bottled water is basically filtered tap water, and you can get the same effect by boiling tap water. You spend over 1000 times…
Tap water is better since it is chlorinated before supplying to the pipe line, where as the bottled water is simply purified,packed in bottle and reaches the consumer may be after l5/20 days,when the purity ratio subsides. It is also true that tap water is also not 100% germ free for which boiling is the best option.
Possibly because most tap water has natural minerals that have not been removed, regardless of chlorination and whatever else has been done to purify for culinary usage. Some bottled water has been filtered, even distilled to remove the minerals. Others are nothing but tap water bottled with a fancy price for a big profit.
Assuming that bottled water is purer than tap water, has less ions etc, and that both volumes are the same, then sugar cubes would dissolve faster in bottled water. Thermodynamically there is less entropy in tap water than there is in purer water, so hydrogen bonding with sugar (which is polar) would be more favoured in bottled water.
For one, the idiot who answered this question before me doesn't know what he is saying. Bottled water is proven to be worst for you because the chemicals in the plastic causes what is known as alzheimer's disease and is prone to give you diarrhea. Also tap is BETTER because it doesn't have no extra chemicals given to you or put in it. It is nothing but good old fashioned water natural and everything.
This is largely a matter of personal preference. Those with the means to buy bottled water on a regular basis prefer the convenience of a bottle that is ready to grab at any time. There is also the common perception (largely misconception) that tap water is dirty or contaminated. Finally, some insist that bottled water tastes better.
Some bottled waters are pretty much the same as tap water. The main advantage of bottled water is that it doesn't have chlorine as does tap water. But now there's evidence that the plastic that contains most bottled water emits toxic chemicals.... This chemical is a chemical that is known to cause a rare type of Alzheimer's disease so be careful. I recommend you drink tap water, it may have chlorine but it might be…
