Product Description

This is an artisan product which is made in the USA.

Care & Instructions:

Clean the removable stainless steel bowls after each use, or daily.

Remove the rubber bowl rings weekly, clean and dry bowl holder edges. If water and food collect around the bowls' edges, there is a risk of rusting or bubbling in the exposed areas over time.

Weekly, wipe the feeder with a damp cloth and dry.

Treat your feeder as if you were eating from it yourself.

Unlike ordinary food & water bowls that require your pet to bend over, tighten muscles and stress joints, a Raised Diner allows your pet to stand upright in a more relaxed, healthier position. The feeder is especially advantageous to older dogs with arthritic joints and spine. Includes dishwasher safe stainless steel bowls and an easy to clean surface- just wipe with a damp cloth and dry!

Veterinarians recommend elevated feeders for dogs and cats because they offer a number of advantages: hygiene and cleanliness, comfort for dogs and cats with arthritis or neck or back problems, and benefits for cats and dogs with megaesophagus or other conditions that make swallowing difficult.

Elevated feeders and dishes keep feeding areas cleaner. Elevated dishes help keep the food and water in the bowls and not on the floor. Dogs tend to lift their heads after taking a drink to facilitate swallowing. With an elevated feeder, they don't have to raise their heads as far and the water usually drips right back into their water dish.

Elevated feeders may help reduce intestinal gas in dogs. Eating bent over forces dogs to gulp their food. In the process, the dogs swallow more air. This air can end up as foul smelling gas a while later. The higher the dish, the less gulping. In rare instances, swallowing an increased amount of air my result in a condition called bloat (gastric dilation and volvulus - GDV). This occurs most commonly in large breed dogs, and is life-threatening. Some veterinarians recommend elevated feeders for dogs susceptible to bloat.

Elevated feeders are more comfortable for older pets. Dogs with arthritis and cats with arthritis also benefit from elevated feeders. Bending over to eat isn't comfortable for pets with stiff muscles or sore joints, particularly for pets with neck or back problems such as intervertebral (IV) disc disease.

Older pets often eat less anyway, which means they may not get the nutrition they need. If eating is painful or uncomfortable, they are likely to eat even less. Raising food and water to their level encourages eating and drinking.

Finally, elevated feeders have an extra bonus. We've also had pet owners tell us that they appreciate not having to bend over as far to pick up or fill up water and food dishes. For the frail, physically handicapped, or persons with arthritis or back problems, elevated feeders can make a big difference.
