The Drinkwell Avalon pet fountain by PetSafe has an elegant and unique design and with its 70 oz. capacity provides a good solution to encourage your pets to drink more water on a daily basis. The fountain continuously circulates the fresh water and imitates the sound and the sight of natural water sources. If you ever saw your cats playing with a dribbling faucet, then you already know that the moving water naturally attracts animals and this unit will surely increase the daily water intake of your pets and it can prevent serious illnesses caused by dehydration.
The fountain is made of durable ceramic which makes it extremely easy to clean and maintain. The main parts of the unit are dishwasher-safe and the hygienic ceramic material is recommended by veterinarians, because it prevents bacteria and moss forming between cleanings. It comes with a premium charcoal filter that constantly purifies the water, but you will need to replace the filter fairly often.
With its unique shape, your pets will have two drinking areas to drink from and the round shaped design allows your animals to drink from any angle. The dual stream, free-falling system adds extra oxygen to the water, while it makes a soothing and relaxing quiet splashing sound. To add to the freshness of the water the ceramic material can keep the clean water cool way more longer than a plastic pet fountain.
