All dog bowls are not the same, despite what you might think. There are different kinds of bowls, and some are better than others when it comes to features.
Cost, style, durability, and ease of cleaning are some factors to consider when shopping for a dog bowl. Dr Carl offers different types of bowls depending on what you need.
How to Choose the Right Dog Bowl
One of the things to consider when buying are material and the size. The types of dog bowls available include stainless steel, plastic, ceramic, and others. For easy cleaning and durability, stainless steel bowls are the best choice. While plastic bowls are the least expensive option, they are more prone to bacteria growth.
When it comes to size, choose the right size bowl for your dog. Don't choose one that is too large or too small. Dog bowls should be large enough to hold a meal's worth of food and have side walls that aren't too high so your dog can easily eat from them.
Breed Specific Dog Bowls
Another thing to consider when buying dog bowls is your dog’s breed. One of the bowls Dr Carl offers, like the Buster Incredibowl, is made specifically for long-eared breed dogs so your pup can eat their food without their long ears getting in the way.
In addition, we offer Masterpet Party Bowl Spaniel specifically for Spaniel breeds.
Slow Feeder Dog Bowls
Dogs who love food too much may eat too quickly, which can cause digestive problems, including vomiting, gas, and overeating. To prevent this, consider buying slow feeder dog bowls. Dogs who seem to be hungry all the time may find them helpful since they are forced to slow down, which will send signals to their brains that they are full. It also provides enrichment for pets as well as mental stimulation for them to work for their food.
Another alternative to slow feeder bowls are lick mats. These mats are perfect for stress-inducing periods like vet visits, injections, bath time, nail clipping and injury recovery, as well as thunderstorms and fireworks. It keeps pets entertained and reduces destructive behaviour as it helps your pet feel calmer and soothed by promoting licking to release endorphins. Pet-friendly treats can be served on lick mats like peanut butter, cream cheese, canned dog food, and whipped cream.
