Dog Bowls or Raised feeders have several benefits for dogs, but it is important to determine if this type of bowl is right for you and your pet.
It is normal in the wild for wolves to “bolt” their food. They gulp food quickly, often without chewing, because they never know when another predator will come along and steal their kill. However, the dog breeds of today are a far cry from wolves. And eating too quickly is a major cause of bloat. Elevated feeders actually allow dogs to eat even faster than they would if they had to bend over their bowls to eat. If your dog tends to bolt her food, using one of the several bowls on the market with built in nubs and crevices is a better solution. Other owners of “chow hounds” choose to spread the kibble across the floor, forcing the dog to seek out each piece.
Elevated Dog Bowls and Modern feeders have several other benefits for dogs suffering from certain medical conditions. Older, arthritic dogs experience less pain when eating from a feeder that allows them to stand in a comfortable upright position. Dogs suffering from Megaesophagus or other conditions that make swallowing difficult are also great candidates for elevated feeders. The raised bowls position your dog’s head above their stomach, allowing food to pass naturally through the esophagus using gravity as an aid.
Raised Dog Bowls can even provide a great benefit to owners of dogs with food aggression issues. A bowl on the floor allows a food aggressive dog to place their forelimbs on either side of the bowl and stand over it. A stance that can increase aggression through possessive behavior. Raised feeders force the dog to stand with their body at a pushed back angle, reducing possessive food aggression.
If your dog is a giant breed- Great Dane, Bull Mastiff, Burmese Mountain Dog, St. Bernard, or a barrel chested breed like a German Shepherd, Greyhound or Boxer, it may be in her best interest to eat from a traditional bowl placed on the floor. You should always consult your veterinarian about what steps you can take to avoid bloat if you own any of the above breeds. Remember that any breed of dog can develop bloat if they bolt a large amount of food.
If your dog is food aggressive, suffers from arthritis or a condition that impairs swallowing, an elevated food bowl may provide some relief. The standard recommended height for an elevated feeder should stand at your dog’s lower chest. They should not have to bend their neck downward or upward to eat.
