What are elevated bowls?
An elevated pet feeder is a water or food bowl that is raised several inches off the ground. This allows dogs and cats to eat and drink without bending over to floor level, which may be uncomfortable for some pets. Elevated feeders come in all shapes, sizes and fit many home decor styles. They are suitable for dogs and cats of all sizes. Some are sold as single raised pet bowls that sit inside a pedestal or stand, but there are also double elevated feeders that sit on a platform.
What are the benefits for my dog?
Elevated dog bowls can make eating and drinking more comfortable for your dog, since they will not need to bend over as much to reach the bowl. It may also help slow down eating for dogs who are speed eaters. Using a raised dog feeder also puts less strain on the dog's neck. This can be especially helpful for large dogs, injured dogs or older dogs with arthritis, joint pain, or mobility issues. Please consult with your veterinarian regarding specific issues.
Another benefit is an elevated bowl can be more difficult for your dog to tip over or push across the room. Pet Junkie's elevated dog bowls are all designed with no-slide, no-tip in mind. Both the Summit and Santa Fe bowls are crafted out of a solid cast resin material, have a wide base and include bottom pads to help avoid slipping and scratching. The heavy material and sturdy base make pushing, moving or tipping difficult for your dog.
What are the benefits for my cat?
Cats may also benefit from eating or drinking from an elevated bowl. Much like dogs, elevated cat feeders can make eating and drinking more comfortable for your cat, since they will not need to bend over as far to reach their meal. This can be especially helpful for injured or senior cats who have trouble bending over or prefer to eat or drink at a raised level. Please consult with your veterinarian regarding specific issues.
For cats who like to play with their dishes, an elevated bowl may be a good option because they are difficult to tip or slide across the floor. The pedestal-style bowls made by Pet Junkie are designed with a wide base and crafted with solid sturdy materials, which make pushing, moving or tipping difficult for your cat.
