Morning all,
Our 'Large Breed' Puppy is now 14 weeks old. Someone yesterday advised that 'Elevated Dog Bowls' are better for his 'Posture & Digestion' both NOW and in the FUTURE (when fully grown) as opposed to bowls on the floor. Someone else then suggested floor bowls better as more in line with nature. I thought I best ask here as I am talking to experts on the PetCommunity.
Advice appreciated please.
Grateful as always ;-)

It used to be thought that raised bowls helped avoid bloat but the recent thoughts are that this is untrue to the point of actually being the reverse
