Cats can drink alkaline water in small amounts, but it is not necessary for their health.
Scientific evidence regarding its benefits for cats is limited, so it’s recommended to consult with a veterinarian before giving them alkaline water.
The main drinking water for cats should have a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Avoid giving alkaline water immediately after meals as it may affect digestion. Cats with kidney issues should discuss dietary changes with a veterinarian.
Water options for cats include natural spring water, recommended for its purity and minerals, distilled water, not suitable due to lack of minerals and acidity, and purified water, a safe option with a pH level around 7.0.
Alkaline water does not have confirmed benefits for cats and should not be their primary drinking water. Seek professional advice and aim for a pH level around 7.0 for cat drinking water.
