I never really think to wash my dog’s food and water bowls, I probably do it once every six months or so, only when it occurs to me. Does it really matter how long his bowls go in between washes, both the dog and the bowls seem totally fine? Just curious!
Yes, it matters! It’s actually very important to wash your dog’s food and water bowls every day if possible. This will prevent harmful bacteria from growing and spreading within the bowls. Some bowl materials are safer than others in terms of decreasing the chances for possible for bacteria growth. I found a great, informative article from the Toronto Dog Walking website that discusses all of the above. Check it out here: https://torontodogwalking.com/often-clean-dogs-food-water-bowl/
