Developed by a Veterinarian, The Drinkwell Big-Dog Pet Fountain is perfect for large dogs. With a 5-inch deep bowl to help prevent spills and a 1-gallon reservoir to increase capacity, your dog will stay hydrated, and you’ll refill his water less often. The patented, free-falling stream aerates his water with healthful oxygen, and an activated carbon filter removes bad tastes and odors, encouraging your dog to drink more. Drinking more water helps improve your dog’s health, especially for larger, more active dogs. On average, your dog should drink one ounce of water per pound of weight daily. With the Big-Dog Pet Fountain, you can easily help your big dog stay hydrated and healthy.
To check if your pet is dehydrated, gently grab a loose fold of skin, either on the back of the neck or in between the shoulder blades and release. If the skin snaps back into place, your pet should be okay. If the skin slowly returns into place, your pet could be dehydrated and may need to be checked by a veterinarian. On average, your pet should drink one ounce of water per pound of weight daily.
The activated carbon replacement filters are made of coconut shells. The coconut shells are put through a process called carbonization, which removes all other elements other than carbon. The carbon is then ‘activated’ by adding back oxygen, creating a material suitable for adsorption. Activated carbon absorbs basic water contaminants, as well as chlorine from tap water. This helps improve the taste and remove odors from basic drinking water.
Veterinarians recommend fountains because the moving water encourages pets to drink more for proper hydration. The free-falling stream also adds oxygen for freshness, making the water more appealing to drink. Proper hydration promotes healthy kidney function, cushions and lubricates joints, speeds recovery time for sick or injured pets and helps your pet’s body with temperature regulation.

*DAILY WATER INTAKE: A healthy daily water intake range for cats and dogs is 0.3 - 1.07 oz per lb of the pet's actual weight (20-70 mL per kg). For the purpose of this chart, the maximum intake of 1 oz per lb was used to calculate the estimated days filled. Your pet may drink more than the recommended amount due to high activity level and/or other external factors, such as the heat. If your pet is consuming significantly more than the indicated amounts above, this may be a sign of polydipsia or other ailment, please seek the counsel of a veterinarian as soon as possible.
**ESTIMATED DAYS FILLED: Calculations were made on a single pet basis and do not account for multiple pets' use of the fountain. All calculations were made using the maximum level of water intake for each specified weight. The above calculations do not take into account water evaporation or other external factors, such as spilling.

I bought this Pet Fountain for the first time in 2004 or 2005. The motor finally went out in 2010 or 2011 after being allowed to run dry far far too many times. Read morePublished 10 days ago by GardenofEdens
