Best Dog Bowls for Large Breeds
Food Bowls for Large Dogs:
Elevated Dog Bowls
The height of an elevated dog bowl allows large dogs to eat comfortably without straining their spine, which aids in digestion. Neck strain is also minimized when your pet can eat from a dog bowl that stands at his chest height. Dogs with arthritis appreciate the ease of using an elevated bowl, too. Standard bowls force the dog to bend at the joints to eat, which may cause discomfort.
Dog Bowls Without a Smooth Basin
Eating too quickly is a common trait among large dogs. Dog food bowls with raised bumps or partitions in the basin force the dog to eat slowly. The dog must use his tongue to retrieve pieces of kibble rather than gulping mouthfuls. Slower eating reduces stomach aches, gas, and bloating.
Ceramic Food Bowls
Heavy ceramic bowls are preferred by owners of highly energetic dogs. The added weight of ceramic water and food bowls makes them more difficult for large dogs to tip. While they may be less durable than other materials, ceramic dog bowls are available in many stylish patterns, colors, and designs.
If your dog tends to overeat or you want him to lose weight, an automatic feeder is a perfect way to help him trim down. These bowls administer a premeasured portion of dry dog food at specified times during the day. This system helps dog owners regulate the quantity and frequency of their dog’s food intake. Owners can set automatic feeders to distribute small portions throughout the day to minimize gulping, which can upset your dog’s digestive tract.
