This bowl will work for long eared small dogs, such as the Dachshund or Cavalier King Spaniels.
Their ears will hang outside the 5″ diameter of both shapes. The eating surface of a pet’s dish should about the mid chest. This bowl keeps the dry food better contained and less exposed to the air. As a water bowl the ceramic keeps the water cooler longer, and better tasting, than from metal or plastic. The turned in rim helps keep food from being pushed out and water from spilling when carried.
These High Quality Stoneware dishes are extra tall for 2 main reasons. So pets are able to stand or sit upright with front legs straight to eat, no more crouching to floor level in what can be painful positions for some due to age or injury. The other reason is they raise the eating surface above or level with the stomach (inside the body) This prevents vomiting of meals caused by a muscle in their throat that will trigger the re-flux action in some pets, after eating from a level below their stomach. Any dish lower than this, offers very little benefit for your pet.
Designed so the sides do not obstruct the pets vision or irritate sensitive whiskers while eating. Will not absorb food odors and harbor bacteria as plastic does, helping to prevent chin acne and mouth ulcers.
The Japanese Classy Bowl has glaze beautiful hues that are almost transparent. A characteristic is the elegant texture generated by the Shades of glaze.
Firing in the kiln is left to the flow of the flames, and no two items are the same, generating an appeal that cannot be found in other works.
