HOW IT WORKS
The Bergan Petite Combo includes a food and water dispenser, each one consisting of a base and a container.
The base features a slot to fix and secure the container and a tilted surface towards an indentation that acts as a bowl. This smart design with a slope on the inside base provides a better reliability to refill the food and water bowl when needed.
The Bergan feeder offers a wide opening on the top to refill without spilling and the water dispenser features a single spout to avoid water from overloading.
