Neater Feeder: "Spoil the Pet, Spare the Floor"
The Neater Feeder is designed with protective walls to contain splashes and spills. It holds spilled food in and flows spilled water down to a lower reservoir that can safely hold more than an entire bowlful, keeping water off the floor ‘til you dispose of it.
Pros: I cannot say enough good things about this product!
- Sturdy, attractive design with stainless steel bowls.
- Dishwasher safe. Made in the USA from recyclable polypropylene plastic.
- Elevated feeding is good for digestion and joints, and helps keep things sanitary.
- No need to clean the floors after each meal or drink.
- Passersby or playing pets can’t accidently knock or kick it over.
- Can be used reliably on carpeted or hardwood floors.
Cons: While it can be recycled, it is not made from recycled materials.
