Elevated feeders offer a variety of benefits over their floor level counterparts. They encourage proper posture, reduce neck strain, improve digestion, and help keep your dog's dining area clean. The Animal Treasures Elevated Bowl is no exception. Made from highly durable plastic and stainless steel, it is designed for everyday use. It features a removable stainless steel inner bowl, and an integrated splash guard that helps keep food and water inside where it belongs. The Elevated Bowl is bacteria-resistant and super easy to clean. It's even dishwasher safe! Last but not least, an anti-skid rubber base keeps the bowl securely in place during feedings, and two cutouts allow it to be carried easily for refilling.
