What is a Pet Bowl

There is a saying, that the pets are our best friends. A lot of pet-lovers think that bowl is not so important for their pets. But that's not true. To feed your pet don’t take an ordinary plate, because sometimes there are some small cricks on the old plates, which can be harmful for your pet’s health. Feeding a pet - is one of the most important duties of an owner. You need to teach your pet to take food from its own comfortable bowl at an early age, it will prevent begging and theft of food. Therefore, you need to pay attention in choosing the bowl for your pet. Don't forget to take into consideration the peculiarities of your pet’s breed and select the appropriate model.

If you are interested in this review, probably, our pet fountains review will be also of great use! Those who have not purchased a comfy resting place for their pets should consider dog houses or cat trees.

What To Look For

Capacity is the one of the most important features when choosing the bowl for your pet. Be sure that the capacity of a bowl is enough to feed your pet. You should take into consideration the age and the weight of your pet. One additional point is the depth of a bowl. If it is not quite deep, you will have troubles with preserved and viscous food. Moreover, your pet will smear food on borders and will lick the dish for a long time. From a very flat plate, soup will pour out onto the floor, and granules of dry food will scatter all over the floor. Please look through our review and select the convenient bowl for your pet.

Another important feature of pet bowls is Design. You can choose the best and expensive bowl, but your pet simply won’t like it because it will be not comfortable and even the color can be the reason of rejecting this bowl. First of all, learn more about the breed of your pet. Look what will be perfect for your favorite! Single bowls will be good for big dogs. If the bowl has two sections, pets, usually have a habit of spilling the water on the food. Eventually, a dog or a cat refuses to drink the water. The material the bowl is made of, is an important criterion too. It affects durability and even stability of a bowl.

As it was mentioned before, the breed, the weight and the habits of your pet are the main things when choosing  an appropriate bowl. You should also take the Dimensions into the consideration. You need to watch your pet’s behavior, maybe, even read the particular qualities of the breed in the Internet and only then, make your decision!

You wouldn't be able to accurately measure capacity of the bowl, but manufacturer claims it’s somewhere about 2 cups of dry food. If you’ve noticed that your dog has developed bad eating habits, you should definitely consider buying this Slow Feed Dog Bowl.

Design

This unique and colorful bowl is made of 100% eco-friendly material: bamboo fiber and rice husk. The non-toxic and fully recyclable material will not affect dog's health and trash the environment. So, even if your dog accidently bites off a piece of a bowl, it will be fully digested. As we have already mentioned, this bowl is designed with a prominent bottom that slows down eating. As a result, a dog slowly chews food instead of quickly gulping it. One more beneficial feature is that the bowl is totally dishwasher safe. Forget about hand washing!

Therefore, Slow Feed Dog Bowl is perfect for both small and medium breeds that are prone to quick eating and gulping. What's more, this bowl can be used by several puppies (if you'd like them to develop good eating habits from their earliest days).
