When it comes to dinnertime for your pet, it can sometimes turn into a sideshow to watch. Your dog comes into the room and if he comes, running this can usually lead to the food and water bowl being sent flying. This is why an elevated dog bowl is the best choice for your pet. This article is meant to be a guide to the advantages of elevated dog feeders.
Elevated dog feeders come in many styles and are made from many materials. These materials can range from wood and plastic to iron. They also come in single, double and triple feeding units. Most feeders have rubber in their feet this is designed to help prevent slipping while the dog eats.
As dogs tend to age, they have a tendency to develop arthritis, especially in larger dogs. With a normal bowl, the dog has to bend down and in doing so causes more pain in the pet. An elevated Dog feeder raises the bowel off the ground, which helps the dog with the joint issue.
When a dog eats they tend to gulp in addition to this can also lead to a dog scattering his food everywhere. If left for long enough this food can draw insects and bugs. Dogs also have a natural habit of when they drink water that is not swallowed running down and hitting the floor. Older dogs tend to suffer from pain related to arthritis; an elevated feeder will help to relieve the pain.
This water over time can damage your floor. In addition, this can lead to a buildup of bacteria, over time this bacteria can harm your family, and in particular, you are pet. An elevated feeding dish allows the do to swallow the water in a more natural manner, which helps to reduce excess spillage. This reduction in spillage helps to save the finish on your floor.
The last benefit of an elevated feeding bowel is not for the dog but instead for the owner. As uncomfortable, as the motion is on the pet bending over, for the owner can be quite stressful itself. With the raised dish, this prevents you from having to bend over more than you have to which saves wear and tear on your body. This is great news for more mature pet owners, allowing them to have access to benefits of a pet companion easily.
Beyond the mess issue and the joint pain that dogs tend to suffer from, there are the other medical issues that dogs have that need to be taken into account. One such issue causes food to backup in the esophagus, which leads to the dog suffering from painful vomiting. Another issue, which is present primarily in large dogs, can lead to a dog developing a case of bloat. Bloat in a dog if left untreated can become life threatening. This can be avoided through purchasing Elevated dog feeders.
