Cats and Pool Water
Cats may drink pool water on occasion but this should not be the norm. If you have a home with a pool make sure you keep your cat out of the pool area. Some cats may like to play in the pool water and even lap of some water to drink. Although an occasional drink will not hurt your cat, long term drinking from the pool can hurt your cat and it should be discouraged. It is definitely not recommended that your cat be allowed to drink from the pool as the chlorine and other chemicals in the pool water could make your cat sick. Typically, a well maintained pool will have a chlorine level that is relatively low and will not affect your cat should she drink from it occasionally. If your cat has ingested pool water call your vet clinic Webster, NY right away.
