I purchased this water bowl late last year, when Ruby was so sick and I was trying to figure out how to get her to drink easily. She exhibited some very odd drinking behaviors as her kidney disease got worse, and I tried anything and everything I could think of, including this bowl. Sadly, it didn’t work for her. However, Allegra really likes this bowl, and I like what it’s doing for her.
Allegra tends to drink really fast, and occasionally, she’ll urp some of the water she drinks right back up. No big deal when she does it in the kitchen. Not so much fun when it happens on carpet or on my bed! Ever since we’ve had this elevated bowl, that hasn’t been a problem anymore.
I also really like being able to easily see how much water she drinks every day. I have always kept track of water intake and litter box output, but without measuring. After Ruby’s illness, I’m even more vigilant, and this bowl makes it so easy. I just make sure I always fill it to the same mark.
The ceramic bowl comes in two sizes – we have the extra tall version – and is microwave and dishwasher-safe. It is available from Chewy.com.
They even offer a limited edition Christmas version!
