1. A portable water bottle for pet, comprising:
a flexible bottle having an opening and comprising a first connecting mechanism arranged in a vicinity of and surrounding said opening;
a flexible water bowl having an upper rim provided in an inclined manner, an internal space defined therein, a top opening defined by said upper rim, and a bottom opening provided in a bottom of said flexible water bowl, wherein said flexible water bowl further comprises a connecting member arranged around said bottom opening and defined an accommodating space therein; and
a water switch unit, being accommodated and connected in said accommodating space of said connecting member of said flexible water bowl, comprising:
a water output member coupled with said bottom opening of said flexible water bowl to mount said flexible water bowl on top of said flexible bottle coaxially and provides a nozzle arranged thereon and extended to said bottom of said flexible water bowl,
a water switch having a first through hole and comprising a water-stop mechanism arranged in said first through hole and a switching element extended between said flexible bottle and said flexible water bowl outside said connecting member, wherein said water switch is shiftable between an open state and a close state,
a bottle lid having a second through hole and comprising a second connecting mechanism arranged thereon and detachably connected with said first connecting mechanism of said flexible bottle coaxially, such that said water output member, said water switch and said bottle lid of said water switch unit are aligned and assembled in order, wherein said water switch unit is held in said accommodating space in such a manner that said bottom opening, said nozzle, said first through hole, and said second through hole are aligned in order, and
a supplying pipe having a low end extended to a lower portion in said flexible bottle and an upper end communicatingly connected with said through hole of said bottle lid so as to assemble and affix said supplying pipe on said bottle lid to allow a water in said flexible bottle to be discharged from said flexible bottle sequentially through said supplying pipe, said second through hole, said first through hole, said nozzle and said bottom opening into said flexible water bowl,
wherein when said water-stop mechanism positioned between said flexible water bowl and said flexible bottle is shifted by said switching element to the open state, said bottom opening, said nozzle, said first through hole, said second through hole, said supplying pipe, and said opening are aligned in order to allow the water contained in said flexible bottle while said flexible bottle is being squeezed to pump and output the water in said flexible bottle through said supplying pipe to enter said flexible water bowl through said second through hole, said first through hole, and said nozzle for the pet to drink while the portable water bottle is held in an upright position, wherein when said water-stop mechanism is shifted by said switching element to the close state, said water-top mechanism is aligned with said bottom opening, said nozzle, said second through hole, said supplying pipe, and said opening so as to prevent the water contained in said flexible bottle from passing through said water switch unit into said flexible water bowl.
