Elevated dog bowls are not only good-looking, but they are also practical. Some dogs are prone to specific health issues that can get triggered by eating from the floor, and these breeds could really benefit from using elevated feeding stations.

Benefits of elevated bowls

These specialized feeding stations offer many benefits for us and our dogs. They can be useful for dogs, and they will make your life and cleaning a lot easier. Here are some of the best benefits they provide;

  • Easier to clean and maintain
  • Less painful for senior dogs
  • Bowls remain cleaner longer
  • Easier to fill
  • Some elevated bowls have storage space underneath
  • Very stylish

Breeds benefitting from these bowls

One of the most significant benefits elevated bowls offer our dogs is bloat prevention. It is not yet entirely clear how, but most vets recommend bloat-prone dogs eat from an elevated bowl. They should also take smaller meals and not exercise for at least two hours after eating. These are some breeds that are prone to these problems and could benefit from elevated bowls;

These are not all the breeds prone to bloat; basically, any dog over 90 pounds should get an elevated bowl to regulate their eating habits. If you are not sure what bloat is, check out this article - Bloat in dogs.
