The latest pet care news, adoptable pets, and cruelty alerts.
We recently had our water tested, and while we learned that we have a small amount of arsenic in it (0.01 ppm), we’ve been told that it is still safe for us to drink. I’m concerned about my dogs, though.
The maximum recommended arsenic level in drinking water for animals is 1 ppm (parts per million), according to the reference Mineral Levels in Animal Health by R. Puls. As the established level of arsenic in your drinking water is 100 times less than this, we would not anticipate problems from your pets drinking from your water supply.
