This pet feeder features a sleek bone-shaped design and offers a spill ridge to keep food and water off the ground. The elevated styling of this plastic feeder raises the bowls off the ground to allow for a more comfortable eating position. Elevated feeders are commonly recommended by veterinarians for dogs that have joint problems or gastric issues, or those just having trouble getting down to their food. Easy-to-clean plastic feeder also features dishwasher-safe, stainless steel pet bowls, which are considered more hygienic than plastic bowls.

Measuring your Pet for an Elevated Feeder
To get the right height for a raised dog feeder, measure your dog from the floor to his low chest level while he is standing with his front feet directly under him. The top of the dog feeder should be at your pet's low chest level so your dog only needs to tilt his head and does not need to reach up or bend down.
Stainless steel vs. plastic bowls:
Simply place stainless steel bowls in the dishwasher. Use a scrub brush to scrub away dried-on messes before washing. The feeder base can be washed by hand with mild soap and water and a soft cloth.
- Stays cleaner - bacteria does not get a chance to get embedded in dish
- Studies have found that pets that drink and eat out of stainless steel bowls are less likely to acquire some bacterial diseases
- Water and food stay cooler longer
- Non-porous, less odor
- Some cats are prone to acne from plastic bowls, some dogs are sensitive to plastic - not an issue with stainless steel bowls
Provide fresh water daily, and wash feeders on a regular basis to provide a clean and hygienic feeding area.
