And why should I not use an elevated bowl? My 11 yr old dog has been using one for a really long time. I think it would be tough for him to bend down, but I will switch. Could someone explain why I should switch?
It's not natural to eat kibble or elevated.. Lower food/water forces slower eating and less gas intake. Kibble can produce gas, particularly kibble with certain ingredients. As far as table scraps... Probably the same reason raw diet is safer, but don't know why for sure.
