Drinkwell Mini Pet Fountain is suitable for any small to medium dog of cat. The fountain spouts out water all day to ensure your pets have fresh, filtered water all day and every day.
This little fountain uses the same innovative watering system as the Original Pet Fountain. The included charcoal filter helps to remove bad tastes and odours from the water, leaving your pet with fresh tasting, filtered water.
Your puppy, kitten or your small little pooch, will have a constant flow of fresh, tasting water, everyday and all day.
Drinkwell recommends cleaning the fountain once a month or more often if you see too much hair, dirt or debris in the bowl. The fountains are top-rack dishwasher safe except for the pump.
The charcoal filter should be changed every 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the number of pets using the fountain. If you have more pets or notice more debris, a slimy feel, or decreased water flow in your fountain, you should clean it more often. Pre-filters can usually be changed less frequently.
Here are a few tips to help encourage your pet to use the fountain.
Set up the fountain without plugging it in. This way your pet can get used to drinking from the fountain without the noise and splash of running water.
Plug in the fountain for short periods of time, until your pets begin to feel comfortable. Try setting it to a lower flow setting.
Once your pet is somewhat used to the fountain, remove other water sources.
If your pet is still not interested, make it more appealing with some flavouring. Remove the filter from the fountain, then add tuna juice or a bouillon to the water until your pet is used to the new product. After that, clean the fountain, replace the filter, and refill the fountain with regular water.
No, the filter cannot be rinsed in anything but water. Washing your filter will allow the soap to seep into the pores and this cannot be removed making the filter unusable and unsafe for your pet.
