Lickimat OH Bowl Information


Who designed the OH Bowl for Cats?

The OH Bowl® was first designed for dogs by an Australian company, Innovative Pet Products.

After receiving requests from cat owners to make an OH Bowl® for cats, they re-designed every aspect of the product to cater for cat preferences. They started with changing the shape of the bowl – very low at the front and higher at the back, to take away whisker stress and stop the cat’s whiskers from touching the sides of the feeding bowl. 

They also enlarged the scraping pad to provide greater stroking of the tongue resulting in increased stimulation and saliva production for the cat. 

As an added bonus, the much thinner, shorter angled bristles on the pad may help in removing some of the hair accumulating on the cat’s tongue although the results vary greatly by each cat.

What is the OH Bowl for Cats?

The world’s first Oral Health Bowl for cats. Targeting hairballs, bad breath and oral health.

Cats spend 50% of their waking hours grooming. Whilst making it one of the cleanest animals around, it causes a real health problem.

Hairballs are an unpleasant issue for all cat owners to deal with. Currently the only way to deal with hairballs is to use hairball treatments after they develop, but there is nothing to help prevent hairballs developing. 

The OH Bowl for cats addresses this serious issue.

The OH Bowl™ for cats is a cat feed bowl which tackles two main health problems that cats face due to being fastidious self groomers - hairballs and dental disease.

With its fine rubber teeth designed to encourage licking after every meal by trapping food particles, any fur on the tongue should be lifted and trapped onto the bowl’s teeth before the cat can ingest it. With daily use this could help reduce or prevent hairballs developing. A welcome option for any cat owner.

Did you know 80% of bacteria in the cat’s mouth is not on the teeth? So cleaning the cat’s tongue can help reduce disease causing bacteria leading to healthier teeth and gums, and fresher breath.

How does the OH Bowl for Cats work?

Specially designed teeth with fine flat rubber tips to collect any loose hair off the cat’s tongue. The fine flat tips also scrape the tongue to clean. the OH Bowl ™ may provide the following benefits for your pet:

  • Removal of loose hair from cat’s tongue.
  • Cleans and removes odour-causing bacteria which fights bad breath.
  • Removes disease causing bacteria leading to healthier teeth and gums.

To encourage extra licking and getting more food to stick to the tongue cleaning zone, try adding a few drops of water or tasty liquid to the bowl before putting in food.
