Dog Rocks FAQs
When placed in water, Dog Rocks will help to purify the water by removing some nitrates, ammonia and harmful trace elements through it’s micro-porous medium thereby giving your dog a cleaner source of water and lowering the amount of nitrates found in their diet. This in turn lowers the amount that is expelled in their urine. Dogs do produce nitrates as a by-product from the protein in their diet, but the difference between too much nitrate that will kill grass and the amount of nitrate that will be good for it is very small.

If you feed your dog a raw diet you may find Dog Rocks less effective. This is due to a raw diet being high in protein which when digested forms nitrates.
