So, why are stainless steel bowls suggested for raw feeding instead of heavy duty plastic dog bowls? Is it for sanitary purposes? Does the plastic retain some of the moisture and make it dangerous? I ask because I recently made the switch to stainless steel and my dogs push the damned bowls everywh...

I should also say that my bf walks my dog at 8am, and I walk her again around 5pm. We both walk her again around 10pm.
