I bought this item for my cat, she has had the worst case of crystals the vet has ever seen. She has suffered with urinary issues off and on. She rarely drinks, we have been back and forth to the vet for antibiotics and special formulated foods. She still remained dehydrated with very concentrated urine. I put bowls of water all over the house, trying to encourage her to drink more, no success. I heard of this water fountain like bowl for your pets, since cats like moving water, thought I would investagate. I found this particular drinkwell, liked the reviews, so bought one. I have never seen my little girl(cat)drink so much, she immediately gravitated to the bowl, she is finally drinking. Best thing I have done for her, all vets should be aware of this for cats that suffer urinary issues. 100% satified.
