A Healthier Pet
As with humans, pets will also benefit from the improved hydration, antioxidants and higher pH values of ionised alkaline water. You may also find that older animals will be more energised when they start drinking alkaline water.
Animals have an innate ability to differentiate what they need. Most pet owners are unaware the damage they are doing to their pets when they serve them tap water or in many cases even bottled water. In the case of tap water, chlorine, chloride, fluoride, heavy metals and many damaging chemicals are present thus causing damage.
Our dogs and cats are important to us and are prone to some of the very same ailments and diseases as us humans. Therefore, finding a safe, natural and affordable solution is at everyone’s best interest. Our animals also have a very fast metabolism and thus react much better and at a faster rate to Alkaline Ionized Water. It has been observed that dogs and cats alike prefer a bowl of this water over a bowl of tap water when placed side by side.
Based upon research and testimonials, ionised water has been shown to drastically improve the health of our pets as well as livestock. As a real case example, there was a study conducted on a Japanese poultry farm some years ago, in which there were 20,000 chicks in Building ‘A’ and 20,000 chicks in Building ‘B’. Both groups of chicks were given the same amount and type of feed, however, group ‘B was given ionized alkaline water. It was found after several weeks that the birds in group ‘A with normal ground water had a lower survival rate of 94.5% while the chickens in group ‘B that were given ionized alkaline water had a higher survival rate of 99.3%. It was also found that the chickens that were given the ionized alkaline water weighed 1720 grams vs. 1590 grams of the groundwater chicks. Throughout the study, there were no other alternations between the two groups of birds with the exception of the ionized water. It is evident from this study that ionized alkaline water had a dramatic effect on the overall health of the chickens. Whether you have chickens, other livestock or even a cat or dog, supplying them with ionised water will make them healthier.
A member of the family whose hydration may be overlooked at times is your beloved pet. Some tell-tale signs that your pet is not getting enough water include eyes that may be sunken into the head, lethargy, less energy than usual, dry gums in the mouth and excessive elasticity of the skin. If you think your cat or dog is dehydrated, you should take him to a veterinarian immediately, as this is a serious condition.
Offer plenty of ionised water throughout the day in your pet’s favorite bowl. Make sure the bowl is always clean and sanitised (you should wash all feeding bowls two or three times a week).
Flea & Tick Treatments
Your vet has probably recommended flea and tick treatments so your pet can live a long, healthy life without the nuisance and dangers of these parasites. But have you ever wondered if the chemicals in flea and tick spot-on treatments are safe for you and your pet?
According to the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) in April 2009, spot-on pesticide products for flea and tick control have reportedly caused the following adverse side effects:
- Skin Irritation
- Skin Burns
The EPA has since worked on developing some safety measures for these products and strongly suggest consumer caution and education about their use. It has reported over 1,600 pet deaths related to spot-on treatments in the last five years, yet the Government agency is still not enforcing harsh regulations with the manufacturers.
The truth and enlightening education is in the ingredients. There are pyrethroid-based chemicals, organophosphate insecticides (Ops), and carbamates found in most flea and tick treatments, and these ingredients can be very hazardous to pets and children, according to the National Resources Defense Council.
These toxic chemicals, like most chemicals and pesticides in the home, are not only dangerous for you, your family and your pets, but also the environment. And while there are natural remedies for flea and tick control available on the market today, they can be very costly.
Don’t despair! You don’t have to spend an outrageous amount of money on all-natural treatments, and you don’t have to succumb to using dangerous products on your pet. You can take your pet’s health into your own hands and make a healthy, natural, and effective flea and tick treatment in the comfort of your own home with Enagic’s Beauty Water. Have peace of mind that every ingredient is good for this beloved member of your family.

Keeping your pet regularly groomed can help prevent odours. To keep your animal clean naturally:
- Make sure you brush your pet’s fur and teeth every day, or as needed. Use baking soda and Neutral Water as a healthy, all-natural toothpaste.
- Sometimes your dog or cat needs help keeping his ears clean from dirt and yeast. Talk with your veterinarian first to see if your pet is doing a good enough job on his own. If not, you can help him out with ionised water. Moisten clean cotton balls with ionised water, and gently wipe the inner flap of your pet’s ears.

Ionised Water Pet Testimonials
“My cat Bruce became very badly constipated a couple of summers ago when he failed to come home for about two days during an intense heat wave. It cost hundreds of dollars to have the problem treated by the veterinarian who said he probably became very dehydrated and that that would’ve contributed to, if not caused the constipation. To keep it from happening again it was important to make sure Bruce drank enough water. As it is with cats and anything that’s not their own idea, this was difficult to do. I discovered that when I offered him freshly ionized water in a ceramic bowl he often drank much more than previously. I also tried an experiment where I offered tap water and ionized water and they all three go for the ionized water first. Due to his bout of constipation causing some damage to his colon, Bruce is now more prone to become constipated so it’s very important to keep him well hydrated. Since giving him access to lots of ionized water he drinks lots and is doing very well. In fact at times when he sees me with a fresh glass of (ionized of course) water he will let me know that I should refresh his bowl by trying to drink out of my glass! Thanks for the opportunity to share this information with other animal lovers.” – Allison Hill, Alberta
“My dog, Chester, is 13 years old and has his own powerful testimonies about his life improving since beginning to drink ionised water. Chester used to have a blue film over his eyes, and after being on this water, that film is gone! Gratefully, he has also lost 4 pounds. His energy is remarkably improved. He jumps and runs up and down the steps like he used to 5 years ago! Chester drinks and drinks this water. It used to be that he would drink two small dishes of regular water per day. Now he drinks about 5 or 6 dishes of alkaline water per day, and he drinks from the dish until the water is gone. It is as if he is craving the water. In fact, that is the first thing he does in the morning now. Instead of his old practice of first going to the door to go outside, now he goes to his water dish first and drinks and drinks.” “My dog is doing better, too. She is moving better, in less pain.” – Patricia P. Tennessee.
“My 5 year old Golden Retriever named “Bow” has been a beach lover all his life. We were at the Dog Beach playing fetch with his favorite ball when he snapped his left ACL. We hobbled back to the car, straight to his Vet. We were told he would need surgery to replace the ruptured ligament. A TPLO surgery was performed. He recovered, but a limp soon followed. We got the 2 paws up to return to full activity. Back to Dog Beach we went. Within 5 minutes, “Snap” the other knee went. He had the surgery on his injured leg & again recovered. However, this time I was able to give him 8.5pH water. He has no limp on either leg, jumps up, runs and plays hard. He has returned to Dog Beach with tail wagging, lip smacking, bright eyed excitement. Not a limp, not a whimper. I believe we owe his fast recovery to ionised water. And by the way, he had some strong acidic urine following the surgery, which burned the backyard grass. Now my grass is green and Bow is doing fantastic! Thanks Enagic for Bow’s health. He won’t drink anything but ionised water!!!
“Our dog Charlie, a Pit-bull / Pointer mix, is 10 years old. Over the past few years he has developed a mild case of hip dysplasia, which would make him limp when he walked and have to steady himself in order to sit. He has also had severe inflammation on the inside of his ears that we could never get under control. We also noticed that the “pep” in his step was starting to fade as he got older. We started giving him the 9.5 pH water to drink and used the 2.5 pH water for his ears. He started showing amazing signs of improvement after only a few days. Now, his hip is no longer a problem. He is bounding around like a puppy again and sitting takes him no effort at all. His ears look great! He is in better shape now then he has ever been!! And the only change we made was the water we gave to Charlie. Thanks Enagic, the ionised water gave us our puppy back! “– Judy S.
“Our Cocker Spaniels are thriving!!!! They have both been on 8.5pH water for several months and their health has noticeably improved. Coco’s Mom Patty makes a broth from the ionised water and Coco loves it. One day Coco’s Mom Patty ran out of the ionised water and she purchased some Arrowhead and Coco turned up her nose and wouldn’t drink it. Coco has been Patty’s cocker spaniel for 12 years and every three weeks has had her anal glands drained…this past time she went 6 weeks and brought Coco in for her draining and the glands were empty. This water has detoxified Coco’s system and is helping her fight a debilitating leg problem. Penny, on the other hand, is not as sophisticated as Coco in her tastes. However, I have had Penny on ionised water for several months and I make her Coco’s Canine Cuisine with only the 8.5pH and cook her chicken in the 8.5 water and it has been so tasty for her, that she used eat like a bird and now eats like a dog!!! Her anal glands were impacted two months ago and I was scheduled to get them drained every three weeks and we went in and the Vet said her anal glands were empty as well…we are AMAZED at the benefits of this ionised water for our cocker’s!!! “– Gerald K.
“Cleo and Rosie (12 and 11 year old terriers) have been drinking ionised water since November 2007. Ever since drinking the water, they have run around with more energy and more interest than ever before and most people assume that they are very young dogs. During the summer they used to get “hot spots” along their back, but since drinking the water, that is very rare and if it does happen, we spray 2.5ph water directly on the spot, let it air dry and repeat as often as possible during the day. The spots are usually gone in fewer than 24 hours with that regime. Lately, the groomer has been washing them in 11.5ph water with very little natural shampoo (you don’t need much soap with 11.5ph) and rinses them in the 5.5ph Beauty water. Their coats come out with a superior shine and feel- like the most luxurious hair you can imagine- and they no longer itch the way they had been after they come back from the groomer. For heath and beauty, there is nothing like the many uses of ionised water! We could not be happier about it!!!” -Neil & Aurora, Los Angeles, CA. Types of water used: 2.5, 5.5, 9.0, 11.5
“I have a 12 year old cat that had been diagnosed with kidney disease. After 4 days in the hospital and hooked up to IV’s I brought her home. Immediately I started giving her 9.5 ionised water to drink. On a return visit, 3 weeks later, the Vet found that Sassy’s kidney function levels were much higher that he had ever hoped for. He was amazed. Then I told the Vet about giving my kitty the healing ionised water and he said to keep it up. You always hear the proof is in the pudding, and now I can honestly say the proof is in the puddy cat. Me and Miss Kitty are very thankful for ionised water and how it has improved our lives”. –Cheryl, Los Angeles, CA. pH of water used: 8.5, 9.0, 9.5.
“Over the past few months our cat Boo had become agitated about becoming an “indoor-only cat” since our move into a condo. We started giving Boo ionised waterr to drink and now he seems more peaceful and relaxed. He doesn’t taunt the dog anymore, either! Another amazing bonus, Boo’s urine smell in the cat box is much milder — not as noticeable — so ionised water seems to have really cleaned his kidneys!”
“Roxi is 17 years old going on 4 (actually acting like a kitten most of the time). She has been drinking 9.5 for 2 years. At the time, when she was 15, she acted like an “old” cat – sleeping all the time, and pretty listless. She was also very introverted and skittish. Within 3 months of drinking the water we noticed that we would come home and her toys would be scattered all over the house. I keep having to pick them up and put them back in her cat house. Her fur has become shiny and silky smooth again (it had become dull and dry prior to the water). And, maybe most importantly, her urine does not have an odour. I would sometimes forget about her cat box because we could not notice any odour even right after she was done using it. She is back to her old 9:00 “crazies” around the house – jetting down the hall and back. She has become more social and she even keeps our 70 lb. dog in check. -Lisa
