STAINLESS STEEL BOWLS FOR YOUR CANINE FRIEND
Having the right bowls with which to feed and hydrate your pets on a constant basis is not only important in maintaining and sustaining their health, but also helps guide their stability within the home. Picking the right feeders for your dog is something that you shouldn’t take lightly. We’ll tell you why.
THE NEED FOR A FEEDER
Dogs require nourishment in the form of food and water. In addition to this, they require a certain quantity of this food and water per day and at specific times. A feeder helps you to keep track of the feeding times and quantities for your dog; making sure you don’t overfeed or overhydrate your dog all the time.
These feeders generally come in a wide selection of size, style, material, and color choices. Ultimately, choosing the right feeders will depend largely on safety concerns and considerations, as we’ll soon see.
WHAT MAKES THE RIGHT FEEDER?
When making a selection for the right feeder, the most important thing to take into consideration is MATERIAL SELECTION.
The type of material which the feeder is made of is a critical component to consider when selecting the right feeder for your dog. Of all the materials available, the most common ones are Plastic, Ceramic, and Stainless steel. Of these three, the most generally acceptable standard rests in the paws of the Stainless-steel feeders. Why?
For one thing, plastic and ceramic feeders can develop scratches and cracks within them over time. These cracks and crevices can cause bacteria to build up and make your dog very sick (even poisoning them sometimes). Furthermore, plastic bowls are almost always manufactured with chemicals, chemicals which have been proven to be toxic to the wellbeing of your dog over time. Stainless-steel bowls on the other hand are crack-proof, toxin free and are hygienically safer for your dogs.
Additionally, stainless-steel bowls are a lot more sturdy than other types of bowls. Dogs are really energetic animals and can often times eat/drink in hyper states. Having a bowl that can support their levels of activity and exertion is a must when selecting the right feeder for your dogs.
Stainless-steel feeders are thus, generally considered safest in terms of overall hygiene and safety for your canine friends, ALTHOUGH, THERE ARE SOME PRECAUTIONS TO TAKE NOTE OF…
1. DON’T LEAVE YOUR DOG’S STAINLESS-STEEL BOWLS OUTSIDE FOR TOO LONG
Leaving your dog’s stainless-steel bowl outside when the weather is really hot could cause the food or water to become overly hot, which may not be appealing to your dog, forcing them to eat/drink less and leaving them hungry or hydrated. Same applies for colder months. Their foods could get soaked with moisture and their drinking water may freeze over leaving them in the same hungry/hydrated states. That being said, it’s important to take always keep their stainless-steel bowls indoors.
Dogs tend to get very excited, and many a time, they may try to pick up their bowls when eating. This could cause a lot of uncomfortable clang-y sounds which might be disconcerting to you and your household. To solve this, attach weights or rubber anti-slip pads around the bottom to secure it in place. Also, these weights or lipless stainless-steel bowls could stop your dogs from constantly moving their bowls around or hiding them.
3. TRY ELEVATING THE STAINLESS-STEEL FEEDERS
Dogs, especially larger breeds, aren’t suited to bending their necks all the way to eat or drink water. Raising your dog’s stainless-steel feeders could help with easing the ways they eat and drink, ultimately keeping them healthier and happier.
Ultimately, the best selection is one that is both safe and hygienic for your canine friend.
