Water Analysis Test Vote for this post

My Mummy got the results back from the big lab that tests water for lead.  She has been on a frantic hunt for why I had lead in my liver tests.  Well according to the lab our water passes the lead test.  The lab said our "water meets the Environmental Protection Agency's Primary Drinking Water Standards maximum contaminant level goals for human consumption."  Well my question is what about us doggies??? Is there a doggie consumption safe level????????  My Mummy has tested my toys, bowls, and now our water.  So far no lead!  My Mummy said she will still give me bottled spring water to be safe.  So the hunt goes on!!!  Love Caesar and Angel Murphy

Louise, it sounds very frustrating...When you find out what's causing it, it'll probably be something that you never even thought of as having lead in it. I know you'll keep searching till you find it and I'll be curious to see what it is! It does make you wonder if safe lead levels are the same for animals as they are for humans though...

Yes Deb it is frustrating!  I do wonder if safe lead levels for humans are higher then for animals.   I will have to do some investigating.  Louise

We are on a common well and I do not drink the water only use it for cooking. I have a filter system that hooks up to the faucet and has two filters.

The company is aqusana and I highly recommend it.

Love Riley and Allen

I know how worried you are Louise that you still do not know from what it is after a lot of test.
I use a Britta filter in my water pitcher it cleans the water. You do have to replace the water filter but we like it very much. Louise you had your kitchen redone is it possible that some things still had old paint on it? Am trying to guess if it could be from that old kitchen or from other painted wood in your home? You must be so frustrated that till now you have not found out what it is! I know you buy good food for Caesar . Hope you find out soon because you must be so frustrated.
Praying for you both dear friend.
Love,Levi,Winter and Yoka

Yoka it should not be from the old kitchen or painted wood because the kitchen and house was from 1991.  I am going to test the plaster board on the walls.  It is my understanding a lot of dry wall was imported from China in the 90's.  I plan on testing that stuff too.  It is really a puzzle!!!!  Love Louise, Caesar and Angel Murphy

I did a little research and found that the amount of lead that would affect a dog/cat are about the same as in a child under the age of six. It takes a higher level of lead to affect an adult. Whether it's the body size or the smaller size of their livers wasn't mentioned but you have to wonder. The study also said that the lead could be coming from something as simple as a ceramic feeding dish to environmental factors such as contaminated soil in the area. I'll keep digging Louise.

Thank you Deb for that information.  I did test his ceramic water bowl and it was negative.  I am in the process of getting a kit to test the soil in our back yard.  We will see what that shows!!!!!   Louise

Did some checking on problem Chinese drywall.  It was put in American homes built between 2001 and 2009. My house was built in 1991.  The problem was with sulfur.  I am going to test it for lead anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Louise, Caesar and Angel Murphy

We use Pyrex glass bowls for Katy's water, and she eats out of one of our cereal bowls. It must be frustrating not to know the source...

Good idea on the bowls!  It definitely is frustrating not knowing where this lead came from!  Louise

Louise...it was just another thought...have you any lead weights in the bottom of your curtains...or do you have blinds?...over here to make long curtains hang right sometimes a circle of lead like a coin was used in the corners of the material before sewing into...Hugs Annie  xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Auh Miss NimbySue your Mummy has many good ideas.  My Mummy keeps her paints locked up so I can't get to them and also her sketching pencils.  Here in the U.S.A. our curtains have the same lead weights in the bottom but she has blinds and no drapes or curtains.  My Mummy isn't giving up!  I am feeling just fine and keeping busy chasing squirrels.  Love your friend Caesar and Angel Murphy

You might want to switch from spring water to purified water.  The minerals are still present in spring water, and it could be from contamination under ground somewhere.  Purified or distilled is safer.  I used to live in a house where the water supply was from a spring.  For some reason, I had diarrhea a lot.  Turns out that runoff from a cattle pasture contaminated the spring with bacteria.
