Plastic Pet Bowls

Plastic Pet Food/ Water Bowls

Doggy 1 by hcmlopes

Recent scientific interest in plastic and human health has prompted some pet care bloggers to suggest it’s safest to ditch plastic food bowls in favour of ceramic or stainless steel bowls.

There are two reasons:

a) Basic Hygiene

Food and water bowls should always cleaned daily (we think best simply once your pet has finished it food from bowl). Plastic bowls are porous, meaning they absorb materials at microscopic level. At may make harder rid of bacteria by cleaning. Just in same way food hygiene rules apply for people, the pets to avoid gastro-intestinal, skin and other problems caused by food contaminated with unhealthy bacteria.

b) Controversy over Bisephanol A

Bisephanol A is chemical make types hard, transparent plastic called polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is manufacture many plastic food storage and consumption items – reusable water bottles and baby bottles, plastic tableware, plastic food storage containers, etc. It is found in epoxy compounds used line tin cans. (1). Questions arose in recent years as chemical could migrate into foods and this posed risk to human health. International opinion is currently sharply divided on issue.

Canadian authorities are focusing efforts to protect newborn babies and infants less at 18 months. Are drafting legislation to “ban the importation, sale and advertising of polycarbonate baby bottles” (2). Bisephanol A was found to “harm fish and aquatic organisms over time” at low levels (3). In canned foods/drinks also regulated.

The Americans are still evaluating evidence. The FDA issued a message for consumers 31/08/2009 stating close liason with the Canadian authorities but for now that “exposure levels to food contact materials, including for infants and children, are below those that may cause health effects”. Their position does indicate however they will continue to review evidence as it becomes available (4).

The Europeans not appear are taking any action to further regulate or ban Bisephanol A or polycarbon plastic (5).

If concerned, pet owners can buy ceramic or stainless steel feeding/ water bowls. Some pet supplies retailers are realising consumers want Bisephanol A free pet products and using phrase “BPA free” in marketing.

Sorry to our furry friends: unfortunately, if there’s a health concern, it does mean getting into the nasty carrier box and going to see the nasty man or lady with the funny smelling gloves!
