Water, the silent killer.

That goes for pets and people. By the time tap water reaches your sink, it's filled with chemicals like Strontium 90, and heavy metals like lead and cadmium, the products not only of groundwater pollution, but of the pervasive pollution by acid rain. By steam-distilling tap water for your own use, you may be shocked when you go to clean the distiller: brown sludge. Now imagine that residue collecting over time in your pet's body. The results may include arthritis, spondylosis, and cancer.

If you do nothing else as a result of reading this blog or picking up one of the reference books, put your pet on a healthy diet and buy a water-purifying system for your home. Bottled water can be healthy, although not great for the environment. The system is a great investment for your home, your pet and your health as well.

I purchased a reverse osmosis drinking water system called a Zeta Rod ( through my plumbing company. I love it. The Water Purifying System-Zeta Rod blog has more details. ;)
