Ceramic Dog Bowls

When it comes time to choose your dog’s water and food bowls, be sure to take into consideration the safety of the bowls. Many pet owners choose plastic food and water bowls over ceramic ones because plastic is much cheaper; however, there are some things you should know about plastic food and water bowls. Plastic is just as bad for dogs as it is for humans because there are toxins in the plastic that leach into the food and water that is served to your pets. Most people have stopped using plastic dishes because of this issue, so don’t give your pooch something you wouldn’t use. While ceramic bowls may cost a bit more, you will have the peace of mind you want and need when it comes to caring for your animals.
Ceramic dog bowls are not as breakable as you would think. They are actually quite durable and thick—to resist shattering, so even if your dog does knock the bowl over, it’s not likely to break. Ceramic bowls are very clean and hygienic. They are easy to wash and suck up the chemicals and toxins that plastic bowls do. The rancid food smell that can linger on plastic bowls will not exist with ceramic bowls. Ceramic bowls can also be put in the dishwasher, making life even easier for you. The heat of the dishwasher will kill any bacteria or germs, which is great, especially for outside dogs. Food bowls outside tend to attract insects and rodents, even when empty because they contain microscopic bits of food, which is extremely dangerous and can even cause your dog to become ill.

The heaviness of a ceramic bowl means that the dog can eat without having the dish sliding across the floor. A dog really can’t use his paws to hold his bowl while eating, so he will thank you for making his mealtime enjoyable and stress-free. Choose a ceramic dog bowl from Zen Pet Supplies with a rim to help prevent food from spilling out onto the floor. Many dogs like to use their food bowls as chew toys. When the bowls are plastic, this can be dangerous. Ceramic dog bowls cannot be chewed, making them a safer option for dogs that like to gnaw on things.
