Water safety is a concern for every member of the family... Even pets we spoke with a local veterinarian if people should be concerned for their pets as well some suggest boiling their water too here's what she had to say! [cg:newsuper\sandra lyndecker\critter care veterinarian] <<<"I would say yes, pets are a lot more resistant to some of the bacteria’s out there and if you think about it you have your strays and they drink out of a puddle of water whenever, if never hurts.">>>Pets can have some of the same symptoms as people who have a virus caused from water. If your pet has fever, vomiting and diarrhea, you should contact your veterinarian for treatment.
