RO filtration question

I just set up my first RO filter and had a coupleof questions.

1. Is it normal for my filter to produce equal amounts of RO water and waste water?

2. Is the waste water consumable for pets - dogs and cats?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I just got my first RO/DI unit yesterday and in the instructions the came with it said the ratio is 3:1.. and Believe me, with my unit it is true.. Took forever to get 10 gallons.
