Despite being so vital to a pet’s health, bowls and feeding systems might be one of the most overlooked sectors in the pet care industry. Water and food bowls are continuing to evolve into stylish and sophisticated accessories.

For retailers, it’s an area that could boost revenue when handled correctly. 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.

These vital accessories are often underappreciated by consumers, and it’s up to retailers to express how important it is to find the proper food/water bowl or feeding system for a companion animal. Topics to discuss with customers include the number of pets in the household as well as their sizes and eating/drinking habits. When managed and displayed correctly, bowls and feeders can offer a major boost to retailer revenue.


Silly Kitty Oval Cat Bowl

Silly Kitty oval stoneware cat bowls have a 2-cup capacity, which is great for water or food. This is a dishwasher safe, and microwave safe bowl specifically designed for cats. With a deep basin, the wide oval shape allows cats to eat or drink without irritating their whiskers. The shape also helps keep their faces clean and dry.

Attractive and durable, these feeders are made with powder-coated metal components, mesh bottom for drainage and built-in hanger. Birding consumers love to decorate their backyards with attractive bird feeders.   






Roamwild Pestoff Bird Feeder

When a large bird, squirrel or rat lands on the perch of the feeder, the heavy weight of the pest makes the perch hatch move downward, blocking off access to the food. Once the frustrated pest moves off the perch, the perch hatch automatically returns to its open position, awaiting the next lightweight songbird to feed or to stop the next pest — letting only the small birds feed.   







Insulated Chicken Water Cooler 

This insulated water cooler is a great offering for the growing number of pet lovers who are adding pet chickens to their family of pets. The Insulated Chicken Water Cooler also features retractable legs for added convenience.
