Food Dish Safety
Food Dish Safety For Our Pets
Did you know plastic food and water dishes pose a risk to our pets? Plastic bowls are more prone to bacteria build-up. Bowls that have been scratched or chewed are particularly bad because bacteria thrive in the hard-to-clean cracks and crevices. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical found in plastic and it has been discovered that long-term exposure to BPA can affect the brain and behaviour. Some pets are even allergic to plastic materials; just being near the material can cause problems such as skin allergies.
Stainless steel and ceramic bowls are usually dishwasher safe and have a non-porous surface so bacteria can not accumulate. Pet Planet has many options of safe pet food dishes for you to choose from.
