Elevated Pet Feeders

If you have a large dog, you may want to consider using an elevated food and water bowl. Some of the practical reasons are cleanliness and convenience for the dog owner. How many times have you tripped on the dog's water bowl at your house, sending a pool of water all over the floor? An elevated feeder lifts the food and water bowls up where they are less likely to be spilled by you or your pet.

It's much easier to access rather than bending over to lift up the bowls to refill. Owners who experience difficulty bending and lifting find these raised feeders much easier to maintain.

Elevated feeders are much more comfortable for older dogs with arthritis, back or joint pain. The dog can easily stand normally to eat and drink, putting less strain on sore joints and muscles.

While researching for this article, it became apparent that there are conflicting ideas on elevated dog feeders and whether they should be used to prevent a serious condition called bloat. A study from Perdue University by Dr. Glickman V.M.D., Dr.PH* found that elevated feeders increased the likelihood of dogs developing this condition.

If you have a deep-chested breed of dog that may be prone to bloat, you should consult with your veterinarian before choosing to use an elevated feeder.

I also came across several articles indicating that the condition called megaesophagus can be controlled by using an elevated feeder, however this also turns out to not be the case. Elevated feeders do not provide the vertical feeding position required to aid dogs with megaesophagus. Again, if your dog has been diagnosed with this condition, please consult your vet about the proper feeding techniques that will help your dog.

Elevated feeders are available in a variety of styles and shapes. Some can be adjusted to accommodate growing puppies, while others are fixed at one height. Most have removable bowls allowing for easy care and cleaning.

If you find that your dog could benefit from using an elevated feeder, you can select one that not only helps his or her meals go down a little easier, but also makes a plain dog bowl into an attractive feeding station in your home.
