Our lives today tend to get a little hectic from time-to-time. Because of that, we may find ourselves getting stressed over the feeding and watering of our dog or other animal. Putting a elevated dog bowl to good use can be a way to solve this problem. Your pet is sure to be pleased, too.
Any good automatic food dispenser comes with a small cold storage box where one or two cans of special food can be held. The best units will even open and dole out food from those cans! Almost all feeders use modern electronics to handle the feeding and watering tasks, too. They can put out up to ten pounds of food at a time. This is an amount more than sufficient for most any pet.
Assembly of these units is quick and easy. They all come with easily-understood guides and instruction manuals. Some even have video CDs and online help available for when you’re just starting out with automatic feeding for your pet. They can help to determine food amounts appropriate for your pet, which is a big help these days.
Almost all dog bowls of this type on the market are built to handle one or two animals. You designate feeding and watering at various times throughout the day. Up to 8 periods can usually be tasked. Or you can limit it to just one, if you have a pet on a diet.
Elevated or raised feeders can also be bought. These are perfect for tall dogs or for animals that may have arthritis or other conditions that prevent them from stooping over a low-set bowl or dish. This makes it ideal in the case where a larger dog with arthritis needs more food, but set higher-up.
Almost all generally-available feeding units are built with the 15 to 40 pound animal in mind. You can also find specialty feeders if you have one larger than that, and you want to try automating feeding and watering. None of them are very hard to make use of, and they all portion food sizes with no difficulty.
Standard food holding capacity of a elevated double dog bowl is about 1.5 gallons self-contained in a hopper or feeder of some sort. With a volume like that, you can expect to be able to put about 1.8 gallons of dry food within it, which it then allots in a safe and sensible manner. The good units also take care of watering, too, which is a plus.
Veterinarians recommend that quality dog accessories with include stainless steel or ceramic dog bowls for your pets. Plastic bowls can become scratched or gouged, and harmful bacteria can take up residence in those gouges. If your feeder doesn’t come with steel or ceramic bowls, make sure to swap them out. And always ensure you use only dry foods in the elevated double dog bowl, as most aren’t set up to deal with wet or semi-moist feed.
