Disposable Dishes

The good, the bad and the ugly of disposable food dishes. Staff Writer

If you're totally swamped for awhile, if you're planning on leaving your pet with a sitter or if you're traveling with your pet, you may want to consider disposable food dishes.   Let's face it, it isn't always possible to clean food bowls after each meal.   If your amateur sitter is your neighbor's teenager, the bowls may dog bowl red with kibblenever see the inside of the dishwasher.  If you're traveling, you may not have easy access to soap and water.  Disposable dishes can be the answer to keeping things clean and sanitary. 


Inexpensive, dessert-sized, single-layer paper plates may be just what you want for a small dog or cat's moist food.  A large dog will need a salad-sized plate.  If you're a member of a warehouse club that caters to small restaurants, you may be able to find those rectangular paper bowls used for french fries or hotdogs.  These are great for kibble and other food that tend to roll off flat plates.  In a pinch, aluminum foil formed into a small bowl can also work. 

Canned and other moist foods can leave a residue in the bowl.  Especially in the warmth of summer, bacteria can grow quickly leaving smells throughout the house and attracting flies if left out in the backyard.  Many dogs will lick their bowls clean  leaving a very thick saliva residue that can be difficult to clean off.  Cats are likely to eat a bit and then leave bits and pieces lying around.  Contrary to popular expectation, many cats we know are the messiest eaters we have ever seen!  They pick at their food, taking unappetizing pieces out of their bowls and dropping them wherever. 

The bad part of disposable dishes is that they can feel wasteful and the ugly part is thinking about overflowing landfills.  However, they can be a useful temporary solution and if you shop around a bit, they can be had for less than 10 cents each. 

You should always try paper dishes before you leave.   Some dogs may eat the plates in which case they have to be disposed of before he ingests them.  A little paper will probably not be a problem but why take any chances? edible dog dishes lettuce

Edible plates?  Another time-saving solution is to use edible plates.  Our more imaginative friends have used large lettuce or cabbage leaves, large slices of melon with the rind intact and even tortilla shells.  This all depends on how cooperative your dog is and just how delectable the plate is.  

Experiment and enjoy!
