The Catfish Wooden Diner has a beautiful hand-crafted quality and is made of solid wood. They come in your choice of three colors: Honey Pine, White Wash and Aqua. These fishy stainless steel bowls are 1-3/4" tall with a 1/2 pint and a 1/4 pint bowl.
Unlike ordinary cat bowls that require your pet to bend over, tighten muscles and stress joints, our Cat Diners allow your pet to stand upright in a more relaxed, healthier position. The feeders are especially advantageous to older cats with arthritic joints and spine. Includes dishwasher safe stainless steel bowls and an easy to clean surface--just wipe with a damp cloth! SUGGESTED FOR INDOOR USE ONLY.
Veterinarians recommend elevated feeders for cats because they offer a number of advantages: hygiene and cleanliness, comfort for cats with arthritis or neck or back problems, and benefits for cats with megaesophagus or other conditions that make swallowing difficult.
Elevated feeders are more comfortable for older pets. 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.
