    So that they don't have to bend down to eat. It's easier on larger and old dogs, such as my mini schnauzer who has arthriris.

    So that dogs especially large breed or elderly dogs do not gulp so much air which causes a life threatening stomach twisting called bloat. It is also easier on old dogs.

    Some dogs like great Dane has digestion problems and need their bowls elevated to prevent the gastric torsion which can be a life threatening disease.

    For my, or I should say my dog's, dog dish, it is because he is getting very old and it seems to help with his comfort in eating. And anything that I can do to make his life more tolerable is good for me. He is a rescued dog and I figure he has already put in enough time being inconvienced and I am just trying to make his life as good and pleasent as possible.
