Title: Food dish for pets

Abstract: This food dish for pets is to prevent vermin or insects from reaching the food in a pet food dish, because many pets refuse to eat food, which is infested with insects or vermin. This dish is formed so it contains water and pet food. To prevent insects or vermin from reaching the food, the food dish is formed with barriers in the forms of a small cup, which may contain detergent or other chemicals poisonous to insects. These barriers are positioned so they require the insects or vermin have to swim over the detergent or other poison to reach the food. This has the effect of killing the insect before it can infest the food.
