    Yes, there are some waterborne illnesses that can make humans and animals sick. Leptospirosis is one of them. It’s a bacterial disease that is most commonly caused by drinking water contaminated by urine.

    Yes, animals, just like humans can get sick from water-born illnesses.  They maintain digestive systems and have organs which parasites can attack and bacteria can implant.  

    If you think that you may be in an area, or have water for consumption, that is contaminated consider giving your pet bottled water (just make sure that you are using refillable jugs).  It is important to remember our animals and environmental factors that may affect them too!
