Plastic Bowls

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The petsitting thread got me thinking about this- and I didn't want to hijack that thread

Why are plastic bowls bad?
post #2 of 7
Bacteria builds up on them and they are a a big culprit of feline acne.

plastic is porous and absorbs food and germs which leads to the bacteria growth, I've heard the stainless is the best option

yeps the above posters are correct. We only use stainless steel bowls.

wow, I didnt know that ! and I have used plastic for years - well for all my cats, with no problems, but I am manic about washing them and I only use anti-bac washing-up liquid, wonder if that makes any difference ?

any other views ?

I'm sure washing them after every use with an anti-bacterial soap has been part of your good luck. I use stainless bowls but the dish is never used more than once before cleaning in the dishwasher. I have 8 bowls for food plus a water fountain so having a clean bowl for each feeding is never a problem.
