Drinking Fountains - Rising to the Top

Having a bowl on the floor filled with stagnant water sometimes just doesn't cut it with dogs and cats. As the saying goes: "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink"

This is where Hagen Dogit and Catit Drinking Fountains can play critical roles.

Circulation and Elevation

When it comes to drinking fountains for dogs and cats, it's all about circulation and elevation.

If you have a dog or a cat, you know that they're naturally attracted to circulating water. Canines are notorious for drinking from toilets; felines enjoy lapping up tap water from faucets. Given the option, they're more likely to drink moving water than still water.

Besides circulation, another important aspect is the mechanics of drinking. This is where elevation comes in. A raised drinking source provides a comfortable drinking level for all pets and is additionally beneficial to pets with arthritis or neck or back problems.

Elevated fountains also make swallowing easier for pets with conditions that make swallowing difficult. Dogs, in particular, tend to gulp down water, during the process of lowering and raising their heads as they lap up and swallow water. Gulping creates excessive air intake, which can lead to bloating, indigestion or vomiting.

Hygiene and Cleanliness

Elevated water fountains also tend to keep surrounding areas cleaner. They discourage pets, especially cats, from playing in the water. With dogs, there's less dripping, as they don't have to raise their heads substantially to swallow.

Circulation and Elevation in Action

Hagen Dogit and Catit Drinking Fountains incorporate these two important factors in their designs. Water from the large reservoirs is pumped up and rises to the drinking surface, providing pets with a constant flow of fresh, aerated drinking water.

With vertical heights of 6 and 6.5 inches for cats and dogs respectively, the fountains provide a comfortable raised platform that greatly reduces some of the health and practical issues mentioned above.

Fresh Oxygenated Water

As water rises from the reservoir to the drinking surface, it passes through a purifying filter consisting of foam and activated carbon. The foam removes debris such as food and hair and helps reduce bad tastes and odors. The activated carbon absorbs chemical impurities, like chlorine.

A Well Hydrated Pet is a Healthy Pet.

Providing easy access to fresh running water makes all the difference in the world. It encourages pets to drink more water, providing many health benefits.

In cats, insufficient water consumption may lead to bladder infections and crystal formation. Drinking water helps reduce the incidence and severity of feline lower urinary tract disease and other problems. Generally, water helps regulate body temperature, as well as helps pets digest dry food and absorb vitamins.
