The One Thing Pet Owners Should Know

By July 16, 2018No Comments

Whether you’re a diehard dog lover or cuddly cat lover, here’s one thing EVERY pet owner needs to know:

FILTRATION IS IMPORTANT

Not only is filtration important for your health, it’s also imperative to keep your pet’s healthy too!

Water filtration:

Public water systems can contain certain levels of bacteria and even parasites. Animals, like humans, need water to survive. Your drink filtered water, right? So why are you still giving your pet’s water from the tap? Most animal experts will agree that pets should be given the same quality water as humans. If your tap water is high in iron, magnesium, or nitrates, these can cause health issues for your family and your pets!

There are also things in tap water that can cause cancer- just like in humans. Giving your pet filtered water will remove those potentially sickness-causing organisms or metals from being ingested by your four-legged friends.

Cats and dogs need fresh water and plenty of it. Pro tip: The longer the water sits out, the more oxygen it loses, so be sure to freshen it up throughout the day.

Excess Fur and Hair = Changing Air Filters More Frequently

This part is mainly for pet owners, but happy and healthy pet owners make for happy and healthy pets, right?! Allergens don’t come from hair or fur or feathers, they come from the proteins that are secreted through animals’ saliva, urine and skin glands that once dried shed off your pets and become airborne. These airborne particles can get on surfaces like furniture, bedding, carpets walls, and drapes, etc.

Allergies or not, catching these particles in their tracks is of the utmost importance.  Pet dander is among the tiniest of these small particles, which means they will linger in the air longer before settling.

One of the most commonly used ways many people choose to remove unwanted particles, including allergens, from the air is mechanical systems that capture them on filters. High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters have fine sieves and can catch many small allergens which make them ideal for pet owners with allergies. Keep in mind: HEPA filters can be costly, because they need to be replaced periodically, depending on how often you use them. Another option is choosing a filter with a MERV rating of 8 or 11.
