As JR and BabyPom get older, it becomes harder and harder on their knees. JR also has sublimating patellas, so you can really tell when she's in pain and limping. Over the last couple of years, I've noticed it's been harder and harder for her to sit. So, when it comes to their feeding and water bowls, floor level just isn't that great anymore. However, there are many options out there that make it easier. How do you choose? What do you look for? Personally, I look for something that not only accessible, affordable, but also easy for the pet and human counterparts. That's why I was interested when PetWeighter got in touch with us.

PetWeighter is a cute play on words given it's logo and the pup "waiter". However, it's more than that, it is a base and a bowl that together makes it a taller platform that isn't easily shifted. The bowl locks onto the base but also quite easily pulls off for filling and cleaning. You fill the base with water, sand and water, or ice to give it a weight of up to 13kg which functionally keeps the bowl in place. I absolutely hate it when they eat and their bowls end up halfway across the room. With the added weight at the base, the bowl not only stays in place but is unlikely to be knocked over.
Easy bowls for owners and pets
The elevated feeding position means JR and BabyPom no longer have to bend down to eat, which is easier on their joints. Interestingly enough, the elevated position is also touted to help with digestion.

Cleaning-wise, I have to say that I love that there's no cracks or crevices. I have another bowl that we use often, but things just get stuck in the bottom frequently and I find myself dumping out the water to clean. To make things even easier, the Pet Weighter is dishwasher safe. I love just being able to toss it in the dishwasher!

Size-wise, I think most pet owners will appreciate the 2L bowl capacity, which means less frequent fillings. As small as BabyPom is (5.5lbs), he is a non-stop hydration machine! He drinks and drinks and drinks and I find myself refilling their water bowl multiple times a day. That being said, a 2L bowl is a good size bowl for most dogs. If you're worried about your smaller dogs having difficulties with the bowl, I wouldn't worry about it. BabyPom who's a measly 5.5 lbs is all to drink from it just fine.
