Take your pets food off the floor by using a raised feeder for better health. Veterinarians recommend elevated feeders for large dogs with joint, neck, back and arthritis problems.
Although, all dog and owners can benefit from using raised dog feeders. Elevated pet feeders may help reduce intestinal gas. When dogs eat bent over, they tend to gulp their food and swallow more air. The elevated feeder will allow gravity to help food travel to the stomach. Raised feeders help keep water off your floor and the eating area cleaner. By elevating the feeder, it should encourage older dogs to get the nutrition they need. They tend to eat less when it is painful for them to bend over. Since most older dogs tend to eat less, the use of raised feeders should encourage better eating habits.
