Alternative Water Bowls for Your Skinny Pig!

Skinny pigs may be small, but if you share your life with one then you know they can have larger than life personalities. Just like us, they have their likes and dislikes and that can also extend to preferences in the type of water bottle they like to drink from. 

Most skinny pig parents get the traditional drip water bottles however, sometimes these can present problems. They are known to be quite noisy as your pet drinks, and they can leak terribly, necessitating cage cleaning every day. Occasionally too, you may get a piggy who decides they don’t like these bottles and they might refuse to drink. This presents a big risk, as skinny pigs, being so small, can dehydrate really quickly. They need a constant supply of fresh, clean water to stay healthy. 

We did the hard work for you and researched the best water bottle alternatives to use. If you have a fussy piggy, we recommend trying a few of these placed around their cage and let them tell you which one they like best. 

Anti-Spill Ceramic Bowl - you can use an anti-spill ceramic bowl which is specially designed to prevent tipping over if your piggy bears weight on one side whilst drinking from it. We adore this cute design and as an added bonus these bowls are chew proof so your skinny pig won’t be ingesting harmful materials.

Stainless Steel Hanging Bowl - These stainless steel bowls are so easy to use and since they are attached to the side of the cage, you can put them at the correct height for your skinny pig and there is no chance they’ll be able to tip them over. 

Water Dispenser - This clever design is a water bottle and drinking bowl in one. It attaches easily to the side of the cage and dispenses water to your skinny pig through its gravity flow design.

Stay Bowl - These bowls which are made from food-grade BPA free plastic which is safe for your skinny pig are a great non-slip alternative to traditional bowls.

Let us know in our Facebook group which water bottle your skinny pig likes the best.

Keep giving your pets the best of natural life!
