Pet Supplies: Choosing Bowls for Your Pet

Food and water bowls are a necessity in order to keep your pet adequately hydrated and fed. Having water available for your pet to drink is important to his or her health. But which is the correct food and water bowl size for your pet? That depends on how large your pet is. Bowls come in different sizes for different breeds. Small breeds require small bowls and large breeds require large bowls because they require larger amounts of food and water.

Read below for more information on how to select the right food and water bowl for your pet:

Use separate bowls for food & water

The water bowl should be large enough for your pet to have a one day's supply of water. Water should be changed twice a day to ensure it is fresh. A pet that is not properly hydrated may develop urinary tract problems. As a rule, a dog typically drinks approximately one ounce of water per pound per day. The best types of pet bowls are those made of stainless steel with a rubber bottom to prevent slipping, and tapered sides to prevent tipping. Stainless steel bowls are also durable, easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and can't be broken.

Water additives

Using a water additive can help your pet maintain fresh breath in between brushing while helping to kill bacteria that may cause plaque and tartar.
