Are ceramic dishes ok for pets?

Answer:

Ceramic is absolutely fine. Plastic is the one to worry about. Since plastic can be porous, it can harbor bacteria and cause kitty acne.
Are ceramic dishes ok for pets? - Yes, as long as the the glazes used do not contain lead. Many vets tell you not to use plastic dishes because some of the chemicals can leach out and cause problems like acne. Ceramic without lead in the glaze, stainless steel or glass are all usable with cats - or any animal for that matter. Go with the heaviest bowls you have to avoid, as much as possible, them being turned over if you have a cat who paws at bowls before or after eating. We have several cats and to keep from having to wash a lot of bowls, we use paper plates for canned food. We buy the cheapest we can find and toss them when the food is gone or it is apparent that no one is going to lick off whatever little might remain.
I use ceramic always. I find that stainless steel tends to be too light and I always have a problem with my cats getting too into their food and tipping it over.I can't do the non tippable stainless steel with the rubber around because the rubber breaks off after so many washes. PLASTIC IS ALWAYS A NO NO! Many cats have an allergy to plastic. It can be a small allergy where they can get red on the chin that itches and irritates the cat. I had one kitten I was fostering that actually lost all the hair on his face and paws and broke out in a rash. I was told by the vet to use ceramic always for the safest results. Your dishes are pretty much the same as you'd find in a pet store although you can find very inexpensive ceramic bowls for your pets.many pet stores have bargain areas. Actual pet bowls tend to be much deeper than ours which keeps you from constantly refilling the water dish. Don't forget to wash them frequently though. Hope this helps.
