During summer months, animals, like people, are generally thirstier due to warmer weather. It is important that your pet drink as much water as they feel necessary. Keeping your pet’s water bowl full with clean, cool water can provide refreshment as well as vital nutrients. According to most veterinarians, a pet’s water dish should be:
- cleaned twice per day
- refilled with cool water (and a few ice cubes)
- large enough to quench your pet’s thirst throughout the day
- accessible even if your pet is outside or traveling
Don’t ever try to separate your pet from his water dish and always check the bowl to be sure it has plenty of clean water. If you notice any film in the bowl, wash it immediately. Your pet’s bowl should be as clean as your drinkware.
The Pet Plate Water Bowl is an oversized water bowl that can hold up to 18 ounces of liquid. It is larger than most water bowls on the market, but low enough to keep your pet’s sight lines visible while drinking.
