As water is vital to practically every living organism, it's no surprise that regular consumption of clean water is necessary to the overall health of your pet ferret, rabbit, guinea pig or other small animal pet companion. Using a small animal water bottle within your pet's cage, hutch or habitat ensures an abundant supply of drinking water to your pet, while its use will also provide him with a mess-free way to drink water. Most pet bottles are equipped with ball point drinking tubes, which allows for gerbils, guinea pigs, mice and other small animals to drink easily and freely, opposed to lapping up water from a water bowl. There are even pet bottles that are popular among many small animal pet companions and their pet parents for having a special leak-free seal design. Known as Lixit water bottles, these bottles have been constructed for both indoor use in cages as well as outdoor use in hutches. Whether you have a pet rabbit that prefers to drink out of a chew-proof small animal water bottle, or a finicky ferret that prefers durable Lixit water bottles that are specifically flat on one side, use the appropriate type of bottle to provide your little ones with a simple means to drink water each and every time they feel the need.
