In nature, moving water is fresher than stagnant water. The movement constantly breaks the surface tension of the water and draws oxygen from the air. This process is called aeration and it makes water more appealing to drink. Pets are drawn by instinct to moving water for this reason.
The entire Drinkwell Pet Fountain line filters and aerates continuously moving water, keeping it fresher than a standing bowl water would. It satisfies a pet's urge for running water and provides peace-of-mind to pet owners who know their pets have a good supply of fresh, clean water. The pet fountain's continual recirculation of the water helps reduce saliva found in the bowl and inhibits bacteria growth as well.
Drinkwell Pet Fountains are veterinarian designed and recommended by vet urinary specialists, and are especially beneficial for pets with kidney or urinary tract disease. Having a convenient supply of fresh, filtered water for your pet is the best way to help prevent dehydration. Senior pets, puppies, kittens, and pregnant or nursing pets are at higher risk for dehydration. Please refer to the "Fountain Capacity Comparison Chart" for more information on your pets' daily water requirement. The Drinkwell Pet Fountains encourage water intake and proper hydration in pets, which is a vital part in keeping your four-legged friend healthy for years to come. Try it Today!
