Bacteria in Your Dogs Water

Wednesday, August 10, 2022
posted by Jim Murphy

Dogs like to have their own dog food bowls, but do you really need more  than one water bowl for more than one dog?  What about the germs in each dog’s mouth?  Just like humans, dogs have a lot of bacteria in their saliva. Lets not call them all germs because many bacteria serve a useful purpose. Bad bacteria usually gets zapped by acid in the dogs stomach when it swallows. Some diseases that dogs pass along are respiratory. Some are transmitted by fecal contaminants. Dogs with healthy immune systems can safely share one water bowl. Just make sure that you keep plenty of water around. Adult dogs are 60% water and it should stay that way.

Remember, pets are family!
