The Lixit Water Bottle is an essential necessity for any pet bird. When provided with bowls, birds make messes in their water causing harmful bacteria to build up. Providing a water bottle is the healthy way to allow your bird access to fresh clean water at all times without worrying about the mess.
As many bird owners know, birds can make a huge mess with bowls of water. They bathe in them, dunk their food in the water and will even make poop-soup of out the water within a matter of minutes. As a matter of fact, within thirty minutes of defecating or dunking food in the water, bacterial can rise to harmful levels. Veterinarians recommend the use of a glass water bottle for the benefit of the bird’s health.
However many water bottles cannot stand up to the test of some larger birds. Plastic ones are easily picked off the cage or chewed to bits. Many bottles leak constantly making an even bigger mess at the cage floor. Some bottles clog at the tip, restricting your bird’s access to his necessary daily water supply.
