Raised dog bowls are recommended by veterinarians for geriatric dogs, dogs with certain medical issues, and large breeds whose heads are miles away from their bowls. This is because elevated dog bowls place less strain on the dog’s neck, hips, shoulders, and joints.
My large dog has always had an elevated bowl, since he was too tall to eat directly off the floor. But as my smaller dog ages, it became clear to me that it was getting harder for her to bend down and eat her food. So I went shopping for an elevated dog bowl, that wasn’t part of a set (the water is in a different area) that also fit in to my home decor.
I found a butt-ton of awesome, great-looking dog bowls. Check these out…
Do your pups use raised feeders? Which kind do you recommend?
