I wash both bowls once a week or so. I rinse both bowls every time I fill them. Finn doesn't leave anything behind so his food bowl stays tidy.

I feed homemade, so food bowls are washed after every meal. The water bowls are washed every 1-2 days.

Pretty much never. But if they do, it's this situation.

They lick their own assholes. I'm really not that worried about them eating out of a dirty bowl. And with Bay in the house, they don't get too dirty.

Abrams' food dish gets washed...never. LOL I've had him for four months and it has yet to be washed.

Cynder's food dish, now that she eats moist food, gets washed once or twice a week. And by wash, I mean stuck under the faucet and scrubbed out. I may or may not use soap. She licks the bowl clean most of the time, so I don't have to worry to much about any residue, but there is some and it's gross, so I wash it.

The water dish gets similarly rinsed out/scrubbed when I deep clean the kitchen. So...maybe once every 3-4 weeks? (And yes, I hate cleaning the kitchen. ) I do rinse it out when I refill, but I don't scrub.

Yeah... I don't wash Gwen's bowl. If she eats something wet, I do but she eats kibble... Every now and then I smush up peanut butter with her kibble and then I would wash the bowl.

Lately her and Bena haven't been eating out of bowls, since Bena gobbles food like a vacuum. I'm not buying a go-easy bowl for a foster dog

I don't wash/wash the dog bowls but I do rinse them well before each meal so there's no residue. They get a combination of canned/dry food.

Whenever they.... look slimy....

Which usually equates to, maybe every couple months.

I wash the water dish more often just because there's 4 animals drinking out of it and slobbering it up. But that still isn't done frequently.

Everyone is fed kibble. Doesn't make a difference to me though. I never washed with raw either.

And they never go in the dishwasher, I just squirt a little dish soap on a paper towel and wipe them.

The food bowls get washed whenever I clean ALL THE THINGS or they get gross. So...a couple times a year? I feed soaked kibble and occasional canned, but the dogs lick the bowl clean. Water bowls get rinsed thoroughly every few days, whenever the water starts looking too gross to just top off.

When I was dogsitting, the dishes all got washed after every meal unless there were leftovers (which got refrigerated and fed at the next meal). They were fed dry and canned mixed.

I am surprised at how seriously grossed out I am, I didn't think not washing bowls would bother me but... apparently it does, a lot. ALL food bowls get washed after every feeding (canned/kibble/raw, whatever it is). Water bowls get rinsed at every filling and probably washed every other day? I can't even leave dishes in the sink for more than a couple hours...

Then again, I vacuum every day so that might say something.
