Small animals, especially cats can be more sensitive to chemicals and other contaminants that may be in tap water than humans, or even dogs can. Fluoride is still added to top water in many cities as a tool to combat tooth decay in humans, but is harmful to cats (and dogs) as this can be found in certain foods that your pet may be eating (any food that has chicken meal, lamb meal etc. that often contain ground bone which is the source of this excess fluoride) and this can cause fluoride poisoning which damages bones and teeth. Cats require a small amount of fluoride in their diets, just as humans require copper, but it is easily overdone when it is found in everything the cat consumes. Help reduce the risk of fluoride poisoning by giving your cat filtered drinking water.
