Pathogens in Reclaimed Water: How to Keep Your Pets Safe

A recent study hosted by the National Library of Medicine (link) reveal that homes with pets contain not only a greater quantity of bacteria, but also a wider range of species. Additionally, scientific reports indicate that pathogens in reclaimed water can cause harm to your pets (link). Reclaimed water is not safe for ingestion. Reclaimed water contains bad bacteria called pathogens and water based bacteria are called enteric pathogens. These germs (bacteria) survive through water, saliva, feces, and moist skin surfaces, and can remain alive on dry surfaces for up to a week. Unfortunately, your pets are susceptible to these pathogens when they walk through contaminated parks, or other public contaminated walkways and they can attach to your pets’ fur and cause further harm when licked off their legs and bottoms.
