10 Best Pet Fountains for 2022 That You Need To Try

If you are a pet parent, you must know the struggle of getting your precious furbaby to remain sufficiently hydrated. There are times when the water bowls are covered in saliva, hair, and dust particles, not to mention the slimy sediment sheets- becoming a cesspit of germs and bacteria. A smart automatic water fountain takes the worry of your pet’s hydration off your hands.

What is a pet fountain?

A pet fountain is a water dispenser designed specifically for pets. It provides fresh water throughout the day. These smart devices are beneficial for all kinds of pets as they encourage pets to drink more water and thus improve overall health.

What should you look for in a pet fountain?

Pet fountains come in various different designs and sizes. Here is a list of things to take into consideration when finding the right fountain for your pet:

  1. The fountain should be made of safe materials that do not harm your pets. Fountains that use BPA-free plastic are a safe option to consider.
  2. Choose a fountain that is easy to clean. To avoid bacteria buildup and odor, go for a fountain that is easily detachable so you can keep it clean.
  3. The fountain should have adequate filtration. A good filtration system will remove impurities from the water and help keep your pet healthy.
  4. Pet fountains come in different sizes ranging from a 2L capacity - for smaller cats/dogs and bigger ones with 5L or more capacity for larger cats/dogs. Be sure to choose a size that is appropriate for your pet's needs.
