CSB Toilet Bowl Dog and Cat Fountain * Wow! I love this. Check it out now! : Cat items
The use of toilet bowl cleaners makes toilet water harmful to dogs and cats alike. Many of these cleaners come in tablet form. If you employ these chemical-based tablets exactly as the instructions indicate, putting them in the toilet creates a weaker version of the cleaner, after it blends in thoroughly with the water. If your pet drinks this mixture, he could suffer stomach distress, although usually not intense -- think diarrhea, throwing up and nausea. If your cutie drank toilet water with cleaner in it, consult your vet.
Though you may shudder at the mere thought of drinking from the toilet, your dog and cat appear pretty nonchalant about the matter. They're as happy lapping H20 from toilets as you are from your water bottle. In fact, many pets actually appear to prefer drinking from the commode rather than their water dish! So, why do they like imbibing from the bathroom bowl so much, and how concerned should you be about their safety?

Here’s a water dish that is all too familiar to our four-legged friends. It looks just like the toilet that your dog is accustomed to drinking from, only this is a much healthier and more sanitary way for them to get a drink. Just attach a 2-Liter water bottle to the back of the Dog Toilet Bowl and let gravity pull fresh water into the 6-Ounce bowl as needed. Then, enjoy watching your dog (or cat) having fully automatic drink of clean, healthy “toilet” water! One reason your dog is attracted to the toilet is that the water is often flushed so it’s fresher than water sitting all day in a bowl. To a dog’s perspective a clean toilet bowl is like a fountain of youth. It’s like a giant water bowl that keeps the water cleaner and cooler (porcelain does a great job in this) than the water bowl kept in a warmer, high-trafficked area. Given the choice, dogs by instinct choose running water over water sitting for some time. After all, in nature running water is generally healthier than stagnant water which may contain harmful bacteria, molds and algae. On top of that, consider that porcelain doesn’t alter the taste of water as a water bowl made of metal or plastic does.Why do dogs drink out of the toilet? Because they can.
