Looking for a reasonable priced spaniel bowl to keep their ears from drowning and came across this site. These look interesting. Going to e-mail the person to see the cost etc. and measurements etc.

I know about spanielbowls.com with $5,000 in vet bills the past month I'm trying my hardest to get something a little more reasonable.

I got the spaniel bowls from Chow-Bella, and they keep my doglets ears clean, dry and foodfree when they are eating their dinner :paw: will post a pic if I can

amanda I did a post within the last week about those bowls wondering if they worked. Glad you wrote that. They do ship to the US too. I've e-mailed the person but she/he hasn't replied.

Yes, it can take a few days to get a reply, I was waiting a while to get mine, but it was worth it, they are great bowls, and she makes bowls specifically for cavaliers, that have a slightly wider opening than the usual spaniel bowls.

Here's a stainless steel version (not pretty, but very durable!) I haven't tried them, but they claim to be for spaniels.

They're cheap too and in the US.

That's the bowl we use, and I've been reading these bowl threads hoping to get some ideas for a replacement. Lady's ears do get wet with this bowl, so if you're shopping around, I'd opt for one with a smaller opening. I really wish the spanielbowls were just a little bit cheaper - they look perfect. Maybe I'll just have to take up pottery......

Right now I'm using just a cheapie plastic tupperware type bowl and its working--its 4" in diameter so I think thats about the width of the opening that is needed. I found some on e-bay that were ceramic but unfortunately I believe in the UK and seller says its too expensive to sell in the US. She quoted me 60 pounds to send to US but that was for 4 of them. Wonder why so much? Input from you UK people.

It's terribly expensive to send stuff to UK. I recently sold a cavalier book for charity, and it cost $38.04 to ship to UK, including $3.35 for insurance and $1.69 for the padded mailer. It only weighed 2 lb 7.5 oz.

FYI - These bowls are WAY TOO BIG! I ordered them and had to send them back.

Good to know these bowls are too big. I'm still saving up for the Spaniel bowls which are *drop dead* gorgeous! Until then, I have a raised feeder that Casey uses, but the water bowl is in there too and all of them get water in their ears and it's really annoying!

Now, I also have this for the cats and have recently moved it to the kitchen and the bowl is small and close to the ground, so the dogs ears do NOT get wet, but they're not used to using it all the time yet and prefer the raised one.

The plastic in this one and any other plastic bowl makes me avoid them. I've read quite a bit about the problems with plastics and the chemicals they leech out into the water/food. The spaniel bowl is fired with a human grade, dishwasher safe glaze, and, of course, stainless bowls are fine (though I have wasted a lot of money up until buying my spaniel bowl trying to buy stainless bowls that worked...none did)

Dog Fancy Magazine discussed the toxins/plastics issue here:
