The best water fountains for keeping your pets hydrated

Pets need readily available water they can get to easily, especially when you’re away. Water fountains are a fun way to get your cat or dog to drink their daily water intake and prevent dehydration. Water is essential to pet health aspects like digestion, moisturized skin and fur, and proper immune system function. Fortunately, we’ve narrowed down the list to these leading brands to help you decide.

Water fountains are more appealing than regular bowls, but they’re also more sanitary in some ways. They’re built with filters that trap dirt, metals, and hair particles. When a fountain has multiple small parts, however, it’s important to clean them thoroughly to prevent bacteria and mold.

Keep in mind that most fountains are wire-powered, so consider possible areas at home where you might display this drinking reservoir. Most fountains have a capacity of 2 to 3 liters, which means you may need to replace the water every few days. Take a look at which products might be best for you.

Vekken Pet Fountain

Best Overall

The Veken 2.5-liter capacity fountain is considered the best overall choice, thanks to a provided silicone mat to catch water, three included filters to trap common pollutants, and a quiet, BPA-free water pump. Choose from three modes including waterfall, bubble, and gentle stream depending on your pet’s disposition.

Wonder Creature Cat Water Fountain

Best Value

In terms of value, Wonder Creature’s water fountain is the best choice if you’re looking for a steel top model with replaceable filters. If your feline is a messy drinker, the provided silicone mat protects your floors from getting wet. At night, your cat can immediately locate their fountain thanks to an LED indicator to guide the way.

Catit LED Flower Water Fountain

Best Design

The Catit fountain is a floral-topped reservoir with well-designed, sculpted petal bowls that allow your cat to drink when the pump is off. Its large, 3-liter reservoir extends vertically, saving you floor space. When water levels are low, the LED nightlight gently reminds you to refill the tank.

Your pets feel their best when they’re properly hydrated, especially if they’re physically active or often explore the outdoors. Water fountains for cats and dogs offer them an opportunity to stay hydrated all day and night. Helpful LED night lights, customizable water settings, and powerful filters are only a few features your pet will enjoy when you try one of the water fountains on our list.

Don’t let a lack of time keep you from having a clean home

Admittedly, it's difficult to clean and avoid compromise when you have a beloved pooch or cat wandering around. Having a furry member of the family is fantastic but it does add to your cleaning routine. They're naturally messy, whether it's that time of year where they're shedding fur or they've just rushed through a muddy area outdoors they really shouldn't have, a clean home can be a challenge. The same is true if you have kids, as they also have a penchant for messes. If you skip cleaning one day, you'll have more to clean another day. Moreover, you can only kick that can down the road so much before you're living in filth and squalor.

Fortunately, there's an answer, and a convenient one at that. With the Roborock S7 Max Ultra patrolling your home, there's truly no reason why you need to compromise. It's designed to help you keep your home clean, your pets happy, and your time still your own. It's an incredibly convenient robot vacuum that will save you time and effort not only by keeping the house clean automatically, but also because it leverages several smart features -- like self-cleaning or self-emptying for the dustbin. We're seriously impressed and we're excited to tell you all about it.

No compromise: Saving you time and effort
These days, there's no shortage of robot vacuums. Sure, a cheap and small robot vacuum will help a little when it comes to cleaning up dander and allergens, but you're almost certainly going to spend more time than you'd like cleaning up brushes on the device or simply having to order it around. That's before you even consider how well it cleans. If that cheap vacuum does a poor or ineffective job, well, guess what? You'll still be doing a pass or two around your home with a broom or mop.
