Delicious Water in my PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain

When the well is dry, we learn the worth of water. 
--Benjamin Franklin

I know we focus a lot on hydration during the hot, humid days of Summer but water is a nutrient that your body, and your pet's body, needs every day of the year.  Water helps your pet:
  • maintain the balance of bodily fluids needed for digestion, circulation, creation of saliva and regulation of body temperature;
  • energize muscles;
  • maintain skin health; and
  • cleanse toxins through the body's own filtration systems. 

That is why it is so important for your pet to have access to clean, fresh water every day.  My friends at PetSafe agree which is why they have created an entire line of pet fountains that encourage your pets to drink more water.

Oz the Terrier with the PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Pet Fountain

I recently received the Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain from PetSafe in the new Himalayan Blue color (which was voted on by viewers during DIY Network's Blog Cabin 2014 show).  The Pagoda Fountain continuously recirculates 70 ounces of fresh, filtered water.  It has an upper and lower dish to drink from - however I am a bit too big to drink from the lower dish.  I believe a smaller dog and/or a cat would have a better time getting a drink from the lower dish.

The water in the Drinkwell Fountain is filtered through a charcoal filter.  The charcoal filter features a duo-density pad that catches hair and debris while the charcoal removes the bad tastes and odors from the water.  There is also a Foam Pre-Filter that traps large debris before it can reach the pump.  The filters do need to be changed every 2-4 weeks but they come in a 4-pack that only costs $10.

Oz the Terrier's first drink of water from PetSafe Drinkwell Fountain

Daddy-dog was able to put together the Pagoda Fountain in just a few minutes.  The instructions for installing the low-voltage 12V submersible pump were easy to understand.  Once it was all together, Ma brought it in the kitchen and plugged it in...and at first, I refused to go near it.

Now, after a full terrier inspection, I will drink from the top dish.  I will sometimes drink from the streams of water on either side of the fountain but Ma says I make such a mess that way.

If you think you would love to drink fresh water from a Fountain, then you should definitely check out PetSafe's full line of Fountains to find the right size, style and color!  PetSafe has other fountains like this one that are made of ceramic but they also have stainless steel and plastic fountains too. 

Do you think your dog or cat will enjoy drinking water 
from a PetSafe Drinkwell Fountain?

    2. Her blog is http://catflapcavalier.blogspot.com/

  4. Mom and Dad have been looking into one of those for quite some time for my kitty siblings, Thor and Allie. I'm not sure that they would drink from it as gracefully as you do, though! :) Neat!

  5. we tried something similar and if scared the heck out of the dweeb - he would even walk past it - let alone try and drink from it. I tried it but ended up splashing the wall with water

  6. OMD it is BLUE.... WE love BLUE... WE love to have mom or dad hold us up to FOUNTAINS to get a drink... and we even like to drink from the HOSE... This thingy is grrreat... Mayoress Madi has a Fountain and she LOVES hers...
    I guess Drinking CAN be FUN...

  8. I don't know if that would work at ours house, but we finks mean ole cat dietzy would like it...I fink gussie would try to swim in it.....

  9. My mom loved this fountain as she saw it the first time at Madi's blog. We saw it later in a pet store and gues what happened?... I ran away like a lightning... butt please keep that secret :o)

  10. The fountain would be handy for the peeps but I prefer growling at mom when my water bowl is either near empty or empty.

    Aroo to you,

  11. We love our fountain that we won, but Luke is the only one that drinks out of it consistently. We can't put it where our regular water dish is, because there's no outlet there....but if we did I bet they would all drink out of it. It's so nice not having to put fresh water in a dish every day though!
