PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain Review and Giveaway

Did you know that your cat needs about one ounce of water a day for every pound he or she weighs?  That means if your cat weighs 9 pounds, he or she will need to drink approximately 9 ounces of water each day to stay hydrated.

Keeping pets hydrated is important to PetSafe.  In July, the company celebrated Pet Hydration Awareness Month to help inform pet parents about the importance of providing their furry friends with access to a clean, fresh water source.

About PetSafe Drinkwell Fountains

As the only fountains on the market created by a veterinarian, PetSafe's Drinkwell fountains were invented by Dr. Mary Burns in 1994.  Dr. Burns invented the fountain after she noticed that her cat, Buckwheat, would only drink from a running faucet, and she would wait all day for Dr. Burns to come home and turn it on for her.  

Not only do PetSafe's Drinkwell fountains provide a source of clean running water for pets, they also help in energy conversion, proper metabolism, and temperature regulation.  The fountains also help prevent urinary tract infections and disease and promote healthy kidney function in pets.  

Earlier this year, people had a chance to vote on the next Drinkwell Pagoda fountain color during the DYI Network's Blog Cabin 2014 People's Choice voting period.  More than 390,000 votes were cast to determine whether the new fountain color would be Taupe or Himalayan Blue.  Himalayan Blue beat out Taupe by receiving 76% of the votes.

PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain Features

PetSafe's Drinkwell Pagoda fountain is best for cats and small dogs.  It comes in traditional white, red, and Himalayan blue.  

Key features of the Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain include:

  • A ceramic design that's more hygienic and easy to clean.
  • An upper and lower dish from which your pet can drink. 
  • Patented dual free-falling streams aerate the water for freshness, which encourages your cat or dog to drink more. 
  • A low-voltage 12V system with a submersible pump for quiet and safe operation.
  • The fountain continuously recirculates 70 ounces of fresh filtered water.
Our Experience

When Jewel (now over the Rainbow Bridge) came to live with me, I immediately knew I needed a fountain for her kidney health (she had chronic renal failure).  So I bought one, and I was pleasantly surprised that Carmine also used the fountain quite often.  With his Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease, it's important that he stay hydrated.  With a fountain in the house, he's been drinking more than he ever did with a plain water bowl.

I love the stylish design of PetSafe's Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain; it looks fantastic in my living room.  I also love how natural the fountain sounds.  Compared to the fountain I got for Jewel, the Pagoda fountain's motor is much quieter, which I really appreciate.  Carmine loves to drink out of the top dish.  

Putting the fountain together was pretty simple.  I love that the Pagoda fountain has a foam filter that goes around the pump to keep pet hair from clogging the pump.  The fountain I got for Jewel doesn't have a foam filter, and the pump definitely gets clogged by cat hair, which makes the fountain less effective.
