Water Bowl Elevation

Sunday, April 23, 2017
posted by Jim Murphy

danedrinkIt’s been accepted practice for many years to elevate the food bowls of large breed dogs such as Great Danes or St. Bernard’s because they’re susceptible to a potentially life threatening condition called “bloat.” It’s brought on by too much air in the stomach. The body cannot expel this excess air. The reason for this condition is unknown. Recent research has revealed that a raised food bowl does little to prevent bloat and may even increase your dogs chances of developing it. Elevated food bowls may still be useful for some pets. Eating out of a raised bowl can reduce the stress on the necks and backs of Greyhounds and other big legged dogs. It’s also a lot easier on dogs that have arthritis.
