Petmate Brushed Nickel Replendish Food & Water Placemat, Large
Dog/Bowls & Feeders/Placemats
It takes a high-tech placemat to keep a low-tech pet from making a mess at meals, and Petmate has just the thing! The Petmate Replendish Food & Water Placemat is made from non-skid, rubberized material and has interior ribs that make sure any spilled food and water stay on the mat instead of the floor. They're simple to clean, and sized just right to fit small or large Replendish Waterers or Feeders.
The ridges catch food crumbs, which is the point. But then you have to constantly bend, pick at and twist the mat to get the food out of the crevices/ridges when you're cleaning it. I prefer a flat surface with a raised edge. Then the food stays on the tray and rinses out easily.
need larger mat

The only thing that stopped me from a 5 star rating was the size of this mat! Much smaller then I envisioned. Although I paid attention to the measurements for this mat, due to the configuration, it seems much smaller then it is. Barely holds a large water bowl and a small food dish. Would really love a larger size mat. This mat has greatly improved the cleanliness of the feeding area and is easy to clean.
The mess is gone!

My slobbery pups would make a huge mess every single time drinking. I've tried other mats but they just played with them and it made an even bigger mess. These things are great, no more mess and they leave it alone.
Easy to clean, bowls stay put

My bulldog is a wandering eat; he moves his bowl all over the kitchen as he eats. With this mat he and his bowl stay put.
Great mat for water bowl

I bought this to put under a water bowl for my 2 girls....one of which likes to pull on the other mats and drag the water bowl all over the room spilling water everywhere. So far, so good, she hasn't bothered this mat at all.

I bought this to put under a regular water bowl for a very messy German Shepherd. I was a little nervous because everyone seemed to think it was too small? I totally disagree with that observation as it's the same size as any other mat. My guy has a mold allergy so I figured soaking his paws on a soaking wet foam mat might not be too healthy. The grooves hold a ton of water! Love it!

Traps all the water 'dripples so there is no mess around the bowl. Also doesn't move all over.

This mat is great. Keeps the carpet dry.
Super nice placemat!

I had a hard time visualizing the Large size before ordering. I originally ordered this to go under my cat's wet food dish, as they can be quite messy when they're eating and the room I feed them in is carpeted right now & it was getting stained up. The large is a great size for this need! My cats get one large flat dish with four cans of wet food, and the carpet stains are no more! They don't mind it at all. It's very easy to wash and doesn't get stained itself since it's plastic. It's durable and shows zero signs of wear even though one of my cats chewed on it when he was a kitten, AND I've seen several of my cats scratch at it!

Tonight, while washing the cat dishes and fountains, I decided to place their two fountains on it to see how they'd fit. I already place a towel under my fountains, but I want to add something plastic under them to protect our hardwood floors in case they leak, and I think this will work fine for both and plan to order two more for them! The two fountains pictured are the Drinkwell 360 & the Pioneer Pet Big Max Style. The Pioneer Pet fountain fits much better than the Drinkwell, with room to spare! Either way, I don't want huge plastic mats and the large size is PERFECT for the extra leak protection I'm looking for!… more
Great quality, look, and style, even better price

So the Large mat easily fits a dual bowl w stand. The material is of good quality rubber, and the design does its job in trapping food or water in grooves. Clean-up is a cinch. I've even rolled a vacuum over it and was able to pick up dry food crumbs. It's stays in place very well, and we have it on wood laminate flooring in kitchen. The price was very competitive compared to local pet stores and the size and quality was even better than expected. Two large bowls is max for the Large size mat, so if you have multiple dogs and multiple bowls, you may need one or two additional mats.
