In order to optimally take care of our pet, we ensure that he gets everything he needs, such as food, water, toys, belts, collars, and so on. Most people choose the feeder on the color or print, while it is very important that the feeder is suitable for your dog. Choosing the right food bowl for your dog will not only make eating easier for your dog but also safer and healthier.
Nowadays you can buy food bowls that are suitable for a dog of a specific age, a specific size, a certain health or a specific energy level. In addition, you can choose from a feeder made of stainless steel, plastic or ceramic, an elevated container or an automatic feeding system.
If you are looking for a feeder that can last a long time and can withstand pulling, scratching and biting, a stainless steel container is a perfect choice for your dog. Often stainless steel bins also have an anti-slip bottom, so your dog can enjoy his food without the container going through the room. These food bowls are suitable for dogs of all ages and sizes.
A plastic food bowl is a solution if you do not want to spend too much money. Plastic bins are often available in different colors and prints, making them a lot more fun to look at. Plastic feeders are, however, a lot less durable and therefore break down faster. This makes it more likely that you will have to replace a plastic feeding bowl more often. Plastic feeders are also a good option to use as a feeder on the go. After all, they are very light and relatively cheap.
If you are looking for the food bowl that is the easiest to get clean, then you have to go for a bowl of ceramics. These are ideal for people who are often on the go with their dog, because they are extremely fast and easy to clean and they are often suitable for the dishwasher. You will have to check a container of ceramics regularly for cracks. Ceramics break relatively faster, after which the bin can be dangerous for your dog.
RAISED FEED AND DRINKING TROUGH
One of the newest trends in the world of dog food are raised feed and drinking bowls. An elevated feeding bowl is suitable for animals of all ages. The raised feeding and drinking trough gives your dog the opportunity to eat and drink at back height. The raised bins can be made of ceramic, plastic and stainless steel. An elevated feeding and drinking trough can be adjusted to the size of your dog and thanks to its height it has three advantages for your dog: this body position during eating and drinking prevents joint pain, it prevents back pain and it prevents stomach problems.
AUTOMATIC FEEDING TROUGH
An automatic feeding trough is a good solution if you have a very busy life and do not have time to refill the food several times a day. If your dog loves to eat, it is not useful in such a case to prepare a large container of food. With automatic feeders you can set how often your dog can get a specific portion of food.
All in all, therefore, you have countless types of feeders. Choose the right food bowl for your dog according to your needs.
