“ Manufacturer: Savic / Type: Pet Feeder „
When I purchased one of my Savic hamster cages I was pleased to find that it included a feeding bowl as it was one less item that I had to look for. The bowl was exactly the same as the one in the picture above in a bright lime green colour.
I have never seen this bowl sold separately and as I stated mine came included with a Savic cage. Personally I think it is a shame that I have never seen this sold separately as I have found it to be a good, strong feeding bowl which suited my dwarf hamster.
The bowl is made from a study, firm plastic and is square on the outside with quite a deep round indent in the middle where you place the food. The bowl might seem on the small side but as my hamster was just a dwarf Roborovski is was big enough to hold a generous portion of food.
My hamster was very food orientated and as soon as he heard the food falling into his bowl he emerged from his bed. He seemed to find it really easy to access the bowl, although I did used to push it into the sawdust a little to make the climb up a little lower and to make sure it stayed in one place. My hamster did try on several occasions to tip the bowl upside down but fortunately he was a little on the small side to manage it. I think this would be a problem if this bowl was used for larger hamsters as think they would have the strength to tip it over.
My hamster has tried to have a go at chewing this food bowl at the bottom. As any hamster owner will know their teeth grow continually so they are always looking for items to gnaw on. But as this bowl is made from quite thick plastic he did make a few rough marks on the bottom edge but not enough to make the bowl look broken or unusable.
With the bowl being plastic and made out of one piece it was also very easy to clean with a soppy solution then left to air dry.
Overall I found this to be a very good food bowl for my little furry friend and it is still going strong. I would certianly recommend it for dwarf hamsters.
When it comes to feeding bowls for small furry pets you could be forgiven for thinking that a food bowl is a food bowl. Fortunately, not all feeding bowls are designed in the same manner, and at first glance it is evident this is a well thought out design. The Savic Nibble Small Animal Feeding Bowl is designed with practicality in mind. The small dimensions (12cm x 12cm x 4.5cm) is ideally suited to guinea pigs, and your furry friend will struggle to knock this bowl over too easily. Although the name of the product suggests it is a small size, the bowl is obviously small but I have the medium sized bowl in the range. This bowl is particularly well designed to suit hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils and mice. As far as I am aware they come in three colours - red, green and yellow. The deep bowl gives plenty of room for a decent quantity of food, and to further prevent spillage.
The fact that the base is quite broadly spread this bowl is almost impossible to tip over. You can rest assured that your pets' feeding bowl wont be accidently knocked over as they often do due to their small size. The bowl is of a plastic construction, and feels very decent quality, I cannot find fault with this bowl, as it serves its purpose very well indeed. At between £1-£2 these bowls offer an excellent solution to your pets' feeding needs, with a number of bright and fun colours I would strongly recommend you take a look at them when you kit out your furry friends' cage this Christmas!
