Absolutely, ensuring our pets have access to clean, chlorine-free water is essential for their health and well-being. Chlorine, defined as a pesticide by the U.S. EPA, is used to eliminate organisms but can have adverse effects on pets when consumed in water.
Dr. Joseph Price’s work shed light on the potential harm of chlorine. His studies, particularly using chickens as test subjects, demonstrated a clear impact: those provided water with chlorine showed signs of heart and circulatory issues upon autopsy, while those without chlorine exhibited robust health without disease.
This research prompted changes in poultry hydration practices, emphasizing the use of de-chlorinated water. Applying this logic, it’s reasonable to consider offering our pets de-chlorinated water from quality filters to safeguard their health.
