      I did elevate Oban's bowl three weeks ago when his neck was so sore he could not put his head down far enough to eat off the floor. He's better now, it's back on the floor and once again my big pot drawer will open over it. I've read both sides of the argument. Much of it seems to come from giant breed dog people. Maybe there is something to it with freakishly tall dogs but then some wildlife are tall too and we don't hear about timber wolves and lions getting bloat. I know, the answer to that is, maybe we just don't hear. Anyway, on the floor, sometimes literally, for me and no apparent problems in my statistically inconsequential number of four dogs.

      Looks pretty good. The low system is in between regular floor feeding and the elevated kind I used with Sprocket.



      I’ve never used stainless steel bowls before. For some reason, I have always used porcelain — the cheap ones you get at Petco or Petsmart.

      Still deciding...

      The low feeding system looks good...it's really not elevated, but very nicely made and it should solve the problem of your pup pushing the bowls around.

      Achilles has some back issues. We have an unused 6" footstool and pressed it into use to elevate his bowl about 6" off the floor. His bowl already had little non-skid pads to prevent it sliding around. Sorry I don't have a photo handy. Does it help him eat with less discomfort? I think so.

      Perhaps perhaps you don't need to spend that kind of money on a feeder. Perhaps you can experiment by putting non-skid pads on Diggity's bowl and buying an inexpensive low footstool (can be good to have another footstool around).

      Our little Maine Coon Thea (Dorothea Weasel Wallenda Surname a.k.a. Sneaky Feets) was having problems eating...from a combination of hyperthyroidism (which we couldn't medicate for in any form) and losing all but three of her teeth to lesions. I had Bob cobble together this raised table to fit her dish and it worked just fine.

      Thanks. She was a tough little cookie and very dog-like...just a really great cat. Are you old enough to remember Valerie Bertinelli in her younger days, as one of the daughters on the 1970's TV sitcom One Day At A Time....petite, cute, etc.? Anyway....I always swore that if Thea were human, she'd be Valerie Bertinelli in the role of longshoreman.

      I love cats that have dog-like personalities. And yep, I grew up on that show!

      @Sundance, that's a great idea. The slant on it probably helped a lot.

      I still have a big crush on her!
