Let The Big Dogs Drink! The Drinkwell Big-Dog Fountain uses the same innovative watering system as the Original Pet Fountain.
Featuring the patented free-falling stream of water that consumers have come to rely on for cats and small dogs for the past decade. A large charcoal filter removes bad tastes and odors leaving your pet with fresh tasting, filtered water.
Designed by a veterinarian specifically for large dogs, this pet fountain holds well over two gallons of water. Research shows that one of the best ways to improve your pet's health is to get them to drink more water. And the best way to do that is by using a free-falling stream of water continually aerating your pet's water with healthful oxygen.

My cats prefer to drink from the stream, rather than the bowl. We started with a small Petmate fountain we received as a gift. But I had to fill it twice daily and clean it twice a week. Then I bought a Drinkwell Platinum fountain. Much better, but I still had to refill and clean too often. With this one, the largest I could find, I refill every three to four days and clean it every eight to nine. Better, though not perfect yet. I keep it on a low setting, and do not find it noisy at all. ...Nor do we have a problem with splashing. My only con is that I must disassemble it and take it downstairs to clean it properly. Why doesn't some wizard out there invent a self-cleaning fountain?!

"Its very noisy - the hum of the motor especially. We have it in our kitchen and you can hear it in the next room sometimes. I don't mind the water fountain sound though.
Food and hair debris contaminate the water and I find myself rinsing it out every 2 days at least."
