What do you eat from?

Obviously a bowl, but what kind? It matters more than you humans think. There are numerous choices. Plastic, ceramic, stainless, etc. Here is the breakdown, Plastic bowls- scratch and harbor bacteria. The bacteria lives in the scratches in the plastic and can cause infections, chin acne and stomach issues. To stay on the safe, hygienic side, choose stainless steel, ceramic, porcelain, or stoneware, but make sure the glaze is for human consumption and lead free.
Also, don't buy an over sized huge bowl, this temps you to fill it with more food, and results in us dogs getting fatter.
I ordered personalized ones for my pack from Cindy, at she is a great lady, and she uses a non-toxic, lead free, tested for human consumption glaze on all her creations.
