I think it means water with a ph level of 8.

Found this online:

Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9.

Type of water: pH level
Bottled waters labeled as alkaline: 8 to 9
Tap water: Varies; typically about 7.5
Distilled reverse osmosis water: 5 to 7
Thank you. I know we have rust in our water and have a filtration system. So I should get it tested for ph and I want it to be more like 8 or 9?

I would read up on it & go from there.
Until seeing this thread I'd never even thought about the pH of the water we drink. LOL

Ari is looking like the Lorax. Any suggestions or ideas. She has a orange tinge to her face. Is it food? Is is water? Is it teething?

I had exactly the same problem with my beautiful little Mischa and we finally found out and confirmed that was her teething until we had to removed 8 teeth because she had double row of baby and permanent teeth. Once they were gone her face started clearing up but also I still wash her face everyday with a drop of whitening shampoo in a wet towel...this was my experience so I hope this help you with your little one..

What is ph 8?
Sorry I didn't reply sooner. You can purchase an inexpensive ph testing stick online which you put in the water and it will read the Ph with an electronic meter (like a big thermometer). If you can keep the hair around your pups eyes trimmed short, clean and dry, it will help in the meantime. I know how crummy the tear staining looks but have patience till it passes naturally. Otherwise you can take your pup to an opthomologist (I did! lol) and they can check for blocked tear ducts ( which my pup didn't have). She got over it and so did I!
