Default What kind of water?

The answer to this question may have already been given, but if so, I missed it. We live is a small rural area and the water here is terrible. I tastes awful, leaves rings in pots, etc. I won't drink it and we use Culligan water. I worry about my precious fluffs' teeth. Do they need flouride like we do? What kind of water do you give your furbabies? Thank you for all your help!!!

Our water is very hard in our area, but we have a water purifier , and I give bottled water or from the purifier.

Our water is actually pretty good, but Lucky always gets purified water - I have a zero water filter that I use exclusively for his drinking water.

I started with distilled water, but I heard that wasn't great, so now I am using purified water.

We have really good water and so that is what all our pets get.

I only give Zoe Spring water that I buy....even for my family. We never use tap water. I think Spring water is best even for furbabies.

Yes! That is what I use too--just bought it recently and LOVE the taste. It's better than bottled water for people and therefor must be for our pets too.

Sophie gets purified water from the fridge. We live in an area that actually has really good water, but I don't drink tap water, I got use to the Dallas area where the water just tasted like dirt mixed with metal. Some people think it's weird that I give Sophie purified water because she's "just a dog" but she's my baby. If I don't drink tap why would I make my puppy?

Well, I was giving Leila bottled water and then read on here somewhere it was ok for occasional use. So I switched because some said distilled or filtered. Then I bought distilled water. Now I'm seeing no to that too. So I guess I will save that to use in the iron and go buy her filtered water in the morning. I'm so confused.
