Dogs Need To Drink Water

I Like Drinking Cool Fresh Water From A Drinkwell Big Dog Fountain

Do you notice that your pet is not drinking enough water as they should? Are you concerned that your dog is may be dehydrated? Would you be interested in providing them with fresh water that’s aerated with healthful oxygen, free-falling, and removes bad tastes and odors from the water? If you are, then the Drinkwell Original Pet Fountain may be just what the doctor ordered for your solution.

Your pet must drink at least one ounce of water for every pound of weight per day. By drinking enough water will make your pet healthy. The Drinkwell system will provide an unending stream of cool fresh drinking water for your pet and removes the bad odors too. The water in a normal bowl just sits and gets to room temperature which does not induce your pet to drink more.

An easy way to determine if your pet is dehydrated is to do the following test. Gently grab a loose fold of skin, either on the back of the neck or in between the shoulder blades and release. If the skin snaps back into place, your pet should be fine. If the skin slowly returns into place, your pet could be dehydrated and should be checked by your veterinarian.

By Alison LeBretton, December 18, 2014 – I Bought The Original For A Cat

This is my second fountain. I bought the original for a cat with a health problem and the dog loved it. I had the other for about two years (maybe longer) before the motor started growling and eventually just died. There had been times when it had stopped working, but a bit of fiddling and patience prevailed. The price of the replacing the entire unit was less painless then just trying to get a new motor.

By Mark, December 9, 2014 – Good Product

Good product provides clean water for the dogs. The one complaint though is that it’s a bit louder than expected. Two sources of noise are the motor for the fountain and the waterfall. There’s not much that can be done about the motor but perhaps if a version 2 remodel of this product came out, the waterfall can be a bit shorter to reduce the noise. Luckily I set this up next to my refrigerator which makes some background noise itself and partially masks this product’s noise. Still a neat product.

By Online Shopper, December 2, 2014 – Cats And Dogs Living Together

I bought this because my cat would only drink from the faucet. My cat and both of my dogs drink from it and I think it’s great. It makes just a low humming sound unless the water level gets low, then it is kind of loud. I like that though because then I know I need to fill it so I never forget to provide water for my animals. One of my dogs is very picky about what water she will drink and she loves the filtered water in the Drinkwell. I definitely recommend.

By George, October 25, 2014 – Poncho and I Love It

I’ve had my Drinkwell Pet Fountain for a month now, and my little dog loves it. I decided to buy this because he loved drinking out of the water faucet outside, but would rarely drink out of his water bowl, and I was concerned that he didn’t drink enough water. It has been a win win for him. He drinks more water now. I have learned a few things about the water fountain that might be helpful to others. As all water bowls, they get slimy. I empty the water every other day and let it dry out overnight, wipe it out in the morning, refill and am good to go. I am doing a full cleaning of it and the pump about once a week with soap and water. This has resolved my slime issue. It is easy to take apart and put back together. The instructions say it is dishwasher safe, however I think it is a bad idea, and I can get it just as clean by hand washing it in hot water and antibacterial soap. I have asked Amazon customers questions about how they clean and keep it clean, and gotten several good answers…thanks, and this is how I come up with my own way to clean and maintain it. Some use the filter, some don’t. I choose to use the filters because you never know what is coming out of your tap. I hope this helps and would recommend this fountain to anyone who has small pets in their home.

By Bobbie, October 23, 2014 – Love It

My cats and dogs love this water fountain. The water constantly circulates and is always clean and fresh. Wish I had bought it long ago.
