Feeding times can be a bonding ritual for companion animals and their pet parents. However, despite being so vital to a pet’s health, bowls and feeding systems are an overlooked pet sector.

For retailers, it’s an area where they can educate their customers on the importance of matching the right feeding system with an individual pet. It’s a good idea to ask customers some questions regarding how many pets are in the house, their sizes and their eating and drinking habits. It could result in sales of a high-tech system, elevated bowls or dual dishes.

When managed and displayed correctly, bowls and feeders can offer a major boost to retailer revenue. These accessories are often underappreciated by consumers, and it’s up to retailers to express how important it is to find the proper bowl or feeding system for a companion animal. Be sure to explain the value of a sturdy bowl that will keep food and water in, preventing bacteria or leftovers from getting onto the floor, which can be a health hazard for pets and human family members.

Recommending an elevated pet feeder to a new customer who has a large breed dog or senior pup might benefit the companion animal by reducing stress on its neck and head. It also might result in a return customer who appreciates a retailer that has a sincere interest in their beloved fur baby’s well-being.
