City water not to blame for sick dogs


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – What some dog owners thought was to blame for their pets getting sick, wasn’t the culprit after all.

Posts circulating on social media claimed dogs in Evansville were getting sick from the tap water they were giving their dogs.

The Evansville Water Department says those claims are false and that no one has contacted them about their dogs being sick from drinking city water.

Some posts suggested the city’s recent switch in the way it treats the water is to blame, but city officials say it has not changed it’s chemical treatment in months.
