Designed to not only rehydrate your smaller pet but actually entice him to drink more water throughout the day, the PetSafe Drinkwell Butterfly Water Fountain delivers practical convenience in a fun, whimsical design.

Because industry-leading PetSafe works to a mantra of creating “best moments” between pets and their owners, it should come as no surprise that when they decided to build a better water bowl, they worked with the insights provided by their customers.

What were owners looking for? Pet parents of felines and smaller animals asked for a compact product that wouldn’t take up a lot of floor space. They wanted a durable unit that operated quietly and of course, something their little guy would actually want to use versus shy away from. And what better draw is there for a thirsty pet than the sound of fresh, running water.

So, the good folk at PetSafe took all this information to the proverbial drawing board and came up with a brand new design: their Drinkwell Butterfly Water Fountain. Not only does this drinking bowl feature multiple free-falling water streams that spout from a fun, butterfly topper to create instant audio and visual stimulation for your pet, but it also includes a raised drinking platform that prevents the water from draining away. This last feature is an important aspect of the design because it helps to ensure a continued supply of fresh water is available to your little buddy, even if the unit has been powered off.

For those with felines that suffer from whisker fatigue, you’ll know how important it is to have a wider food/water bowl and to avoid those that come with the usual, steeper edges. That’s where the Drinkwell Butterfly Pet Fountain becomes an ideal choice. The shallow shape of the unit’s drinking platform allows your feline to rehydrate without the irritation that can accompany other water fountain designs.

Built to last, this pet water fountain is manufactured using a totally safe, super-durable, BPA-free plastic. It features a substantial 50-ounce water capacity which means you don’t have to worry about your pet running dry if you’re out of the house all day. What I really like about this water dish is that it’s not only easy-to-clean but it comes with a replaceable carbon filter that removes bad tastes and odors from your pet’s water – important for those of us with finicky felines. And the unit’s pump is protected by a replaceable foam filter that catches all those little food particles that our pets tend to deposit in their water bowls. So, no clogging or contamination with this unit.
