Do you just prefer to refer your canine friend the dearest among all or you really mean it? For past few years, have you ever tried to learn how harmful the plastic bowls can be?

However, there are bowls made of stoneware, silicone, ceramic or for that matter steel. But, unfortunately each of these materials has drawbacks. Stoneware as well as ceramic contain lead, while silicone made utensils are also not very trustworthy. However, it is only the stainless steel which is free of any of this chemical reaction. But, are we smart enough to detect which one is stainless? Hence, the idea of feeding your dog in bamboo dog bowl can be just appropriate.
