buddy's back problems

3798 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bigpoodleperson
Now that my poodle buddy is older, his back is hunched and its hard for him to go up the stairs. One of the things our vet mentioned was that it helps poodles (and all dogs) if they dont have to reach for their food (ie. if the bowls sit on the floor.) So we got buddy this really cute expandable/collapsible bowl that sits in a feeder, so its kind of like a dog table. We got ours at petsmart but I think you can get them most places that sell dog products, or online. I've been recommending it to all my friends b/c I wish we had gotten Buddy one sooner so maybe his back would not hurt so bad. You can see what I'm talking about at www.popwareforpets.com

Let me know what you guys think!

That is a very cute bowl set! I too have read different reports that higher food dishes are possibly a contributing factor to bloat (but we cant be certian on anything besides genes). I personally wouldnt use one for my standard, but toys dont really have a concern about bloat.
