Idea for large, arthritic dogs



A friend of mine served her large dog's food and water on a wooden chair.

"What? Does your dog need a place setting at his own table?"

"He has arthritis. It's easier for him if his food is at the level of his chin, so he doesn't have to bend low to eat."

How kind! What a great idea!:):)

They actually make raised food stands for big dogs.
Bear has arthritis in his front elbow so he lays down to eat:)

Really speaking no large dog should eat from the floor. Long eared dogs suffer all the mess in their ears.
Mastiff types suffer from breathing difficulties while their throat is constricted.
A bit of common sense really.:)
