This helps your pet stay hydrated, encouraging them to drink more since they are naturally attracted to moving water. This fountain has a shorter base, which gives small pets easier access to the fountain.

To keep water fresh dual-filtration technology is used to remove pet hair, debris, bad tastes and odours. A charcoal filter, foam filter and fountain pump work together to keep water filtered and clean. The constant water circulation also helps to prevent the growth of bacteria.
