Pet Necessities - PawPawUp

Pet Necessities

There are many necessities for pets, from litter boxes, to feeding bowls, to toys, to carriers, to sleeping areas and many more. Sometimes you might think you are buying a good product for your pet, but it turns out to be of poor quality or simply not adequate for the size or need of your animal. That’s why we have compiled a small list on some products and factors you should consider when buying these three products:

Litter Tray

Litter trays can be a bit difficult to choose from, there are a variety of different ones, but it mostly comes down to your pet’s preference. The litter itself should be consulted properly with a vet as well as a little trial and error to see which litter your cat prefers to use. Liner can be used to protect the tray as some cats like to dig in the litter before doing their business. Make sure the litter tray is ample size and depending on what your cat likes it can be automatic, covered or open. It is really up to the cat’s preferences and hence why it involves a bit of trialling, you could talk with the pet shop owner before you set to buy a litter tray to see what they recommend.

With an assortment of litter trays to choose from, there is always a perfect bowl for you and your pet at Pawpawup.

Pet Bowls

For your pet’s longevity and safety, it is best to invest in a RSPCA approved pet bowl. Using cheap plastic or a pet bowl made from a poor material can be easily broken and become a health hazard to pets if they accidentally swallow the material.

Pet bowls can be made from Ceramic, Plastic, or Stainless Steel.

Ceramic pet bowls should be bought only if your animal has some difficulty keeping their bowl still. Being heavier than plastic or stainless steel, ceramic pet bowls offer a great solution to offer more stability for animals when them. However, ensure that the ceramic bowl you have is unglazed. Unglazed ceramic is highly porous (highly absorbant of water) and are prone to host bacteria if you do not regularly scrub the bowl.

Plastic pet bowls are cost effective and high-quality plastic is very durable. However due to being plastic, it is more prone to wear, scratches and tear and plastic bowls are more susceptible to being a breeding ground for bacteria.

Stainless Steel pet bowls is the most common and favourite of pet owners. Due to its material, it is easy to clean and disinfect as well as being sturdy yet durable and safe for all pets.

Pet Carrier

Safety, comfortability, durability, and affordability are the most important factors you should consider when buying a pet carrier.

Carriers should enable the pet to stand, sit and turn around. Ideally 1.5 times the size of the animal is ideal. Choose one that is not only ideal for a pet’s need but also for their size later as they grow. Space allows for a pet to be comfortable, and the material needs to not offer a sense of safety and durability for you and for the pet.
