Raised Dog Dishes Provide Benefits for Owner and Pet

Keep a clean eating area and promote the health of your dog.

Because there are many types of elevated dog food bowls, it is essential to do your research. First, decide if you want a single or double stand. Sometimes having a double stand works better for medium to large dogs. Once you decide on the size, you can pick the style. It is advisable that wrought iron stands and bowls not be used for small sized dogs, as these dogs have a tendency to jump around when eating and this could injure them.

One of the top benefits to a pet owner of using elevated dog food bowls is that it deters food and water from getting all over the pet’s eating area. Dogs have a tendency to scatter food around while eating. These bowls allow for less clean up, as well as avoiding the uninvited guests of insects and rodents that could be attracted to leftover food. Dogs also splash water all over when drinking. An elevated bowl that is closer to a dog’s height prevents much of the splashing of water all over the eating area, which could be dangerous for your pet.

Another benefit of the elevated dog food bowls for the owner is that it is stationary; preventing the bowls from sliding all over the floor as a dog eats, causing spills. There is then less of a mess to clean up.

A great benefit to the dog using elevated dog food bowls is the prevention of sore necks from having to bend down low to eat or drink water. This is especially helpful to older dogs that might have a hard time bending low due to the development of arthritis, especially if it is a medium to large sized dog.

Elevated dog food bowls are a wonderful invention for both the dog owner and the dog. It provides a nice safe environment for meal time. These bowls can easily be found and purchased on the Internet at reasonable prices and free shipping options. Always look for sites that sell pendant lighting, and buy from a trusted site.

As the previous poster mentioned, elevated food bowls increase the risk of bloat. According to the Glickman Study, a serious and accepted piece of research in the field, large dogs are at a 110% increased risk of bloat when eating from an elevated bowl. Bloat can and does kill dogs. You may want to add that warning. It may not help sales of elevated bowls, but people need to know. Here is one of many links to sources indicating the risks: http://www.vetinfo.com/elevated-dog-f...
