Today My water bottle (32 oz) leaked half of it!! I was so mad!!!! I replaced the towel underneath and filled up a bowl and put the bowl in the cage. What water bottle (32 oz please) would you reccomend. This one was a Super Pet water bottle. 32 oz size and it was plastic. I hate it! I need a new water bottle before the babies come! Please help!

Is the rubber washer inside of it in the right place? Do you fill the bottle all the way to the top, squeeze a little water out and turn it over before releasing the bottle? If you just hold it over the sink does it leak, or only when it's in the cage?

Some pigs just like to play with water -- maybe you've got some.

Everything is good, it leaks all the time. I have tried shaking it and cleaning the nozzle and making it air tight and all kinds of stuff. :p

My pigs LOVE to play with water. I had a bowl placed, and I like it much better than bottles. Plus, they are easier to clean.

I have two water bottles in the cage at the moment. But maybe more. You could put a walmart water bottle in as a 3rd one. Just so they don't fight.

I use bowls for their water in a couple of the cages as we don't have enough water bottles for all the cages.

Well, Im not getting the water bottle until August. :( Are water bowls okay if Loopsie has babies? I dont want to clean a 32 oz water bottle spill everyday. I dont have the time for that. And the next time Im working extra is August 22-24 :(

It is a double dish, about 3 inches deep each side. Holds about a cup of water each side. But I do have smaller bowls I can use. But then it will take up more playing room

I honestly don't see why you can't get a water bottle now...
But unless there's pups around a water bowl should be sufficient. Just change it often! :)
