Adjustable Dog Bowls Allow Me to Put Bowls at Just the Right Height

When I recently began to spend just a little time looking for some different kinds of bowls that my dogs could eat out of, I was mostly concerned with finding elevated bowls that would get the food and water to a height that was more comfortable for them. I had heard from my vet that different types of bowls that weren’t high enough can be bad for dogs.

It is wonderful to be able to get some different types of dog bowls that are ones that are the right height for my pet. There are many that come at standard heights, but just in case my dogs are a bit different than what is standard, I have decided on some adjustable dog bowls. These bowls will be ones that I can always put at just the right height for my dog.

There are some wonderful kinds of dog bowls that I can use with my dogs on a regular basis. I really enjoy being able to pick out just the right kinds of bowls that I can use all the time. My dogs will be a lot happier to be able to eat out of bowls that are finally at just the right height.

wrought iron dog bowlsWhen I recently spent a bit of time looking for some different kinds of dog bowls that I might be able to use for my dogs, I focused on looking at all the different types of raised dog bowls that were available. These bowls are good for dogs since these bowls are raised to their shoulder level. There are many different ones available, so I have spent a good amount of time looking at these items.

Out of all of the different types of bowls that we have, I am really interested in finding some wrought iron dog bowls that would look nice in my home. I know that these different kinds of bowls are ones that are very attractive and would be great for my dogs to eat out of. Picking bowls like these ones will be something that is a lot more fun for me.

Once my dogs have some nice bowls to eat and drink out of, I will feel a lot better about having these bowls in the kitchen of my home. Bowls that actually look nice and are not so easy to trip over will really be perfect to use around my dogs. I know my dogs will love having some new bowls.

A Petmate Water Fountain is Perfect for Getting My Pup the Water He Needs

petmate water fountain 8-12-16During this time of the year, it is especially important to keep a dog hydrated on a regular basis. The heat outside makes it so that this time of the year is a common time for dogs to get heat stroke or become too dehydrated for their health. It is extremely important that I do what I can so that I am able to keep my dog happy and healthy.

Mostly this means encouraging my dog to drink a good amount of water rather than just laying around without drinking any. To do this, I have purchased a Petmate water fountain that supplies my dog with wonderful and clean water that he can drink all of the time. I have to keep an eye on the fountain to make sure that fresh water is added on a regular basis.

My dog loves to watch the water splashing in the fountain and is always encouraged to drink from it when she sees this. I am just glad that I have something like this fountain to help me ensure that my dog is able to keep drinking plenty of water all of the time. My dog stays hydrated and a whole lot happier.

A Petmate Fresh Flow Fountain Gives My Dog Fresh Water Always

petmate fresh flowWhen I first adopted my dog, I found that she had the unique problem of not enjoying drinking water that had been sitting out for any amount of time. When I put the water down for her each day, she would drink it right away, but after it had sat for a while, she would only stare at it. I didn’t want her to have to go thirsty because she wouldn’t drink water that wasn’t fresh.

I have been working on finding a lot of different types of fountains that I might be able to use so that she can enjoy fresh water on a regular basis. I have decided to get her one of these pet fountains so that she is able to constantly enjoy water that is fresh. This will be great to use when I am away at work so that she doesn’t have to worry about having fresh water.

I plan to purchase a Petmate fresh flow fountain that I will be able to use to keep my dog constantly supplied with the water that she needs. I am hoping that this will make it so that she is able to drink water throughout the day. These fountains aren’t cheap, but it is worth it just to be able to keep my pet healthy.

An Automatic Dog Waterer Makes it Easy for Me to Keep My Dog Hydrated

panting dogWith the weather getting so warm now that it is just about summertime, I have started to worry a lot about my dog being outside during the day. I worry mostly about her getting too hot even though she has shade just because she likes to run around a whole lot. I don’t want her to end up getting dehydrated just because she runs out of water to drink.

I have come home a few days now to find the water bowl that she has on the porch is completely empty. This is concerning to me because I know that she is not able to get the water that she needs when there isn’t any water left. I have been trying to find some different solutions to make it so that I can easily keep my dog refreshed and hydrated.

I recently managed to find an automatic dog waterer that will make it so that it isn’t possible for her to run out of water. The waterer will ensure that the bowl stays full even as she drinks from it so she will never have to run out of water again. I cannot wait to get this great bowl set up for her in my backyard where she can drink from it.

Feeders & Waterers

img_petstores_PTM24880WaterIt is always best to ensure that your dog always has access to clean fresh water.  The Petmate Fresh Flow water fountain will provide your dog with a constant flow of filtered fresh water.  This continuous flow of circulating filtered water is oxygenated to keep it nice and cool which entices your pet to drink more water which is essential for good health.  You will save time also because all you will need to do is change the filter every couple of weeks to keep it clean.

Some dogs tend to gobble their food down too fast which can cause many problems some of which could be fatal.  If a dogs eats too much too fast without chewing the food enough a serious condition called gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV). The gulping of food results in excessive air, fluid and food filling the stomach, followed by swelling (dilatation) of the stomach cavity. As the stomach expands, it can twist around on its axis (volvulus),  which makes it impossible for anything to pass through the stomach to the intestines. If this happens, your dog can go into shock and die quickly.  One method of avoiding this problem is to use a special type of feeder that only releases a small amount of food at a time so when you are rushing to get to work or school you won’t have to worry about your dog eating too much at a time as the food would be released every 2 hours or however you set it and would dispense a small premeasured amount of food.  This condition is more common in large breed dogs.
