Many dogs, and believe it or not, even some cats, have a tendency to devour their food when presented with their meal. Labrador Retrievers are one canine breed that is infamous for their appetites. As a long time Lab owner, I can vouch for the fact that these dogs can literally inhale their food.
Having a slow feed bowl or puzzle feeder on hand for those situations where your dog insists on eating too fast is a great idea.
Slow feed bowls tend to be simple designs that provide just enough of a barrier to slow your pup down. Puzzle feeders are great if your dog gets bored easily, regardless of their behavior at mealtime. By putting them to work for the reward of food, you get the double benefit of slowing them down while also providing a challenge that stimulates their mind. You don’t get paid without doing work, why should your dog?
Pets that eat rapidly are more likely to present with an assortment of problems related to their speed eating including:
- Gastrointestinal discomfort
- Food bloat, which can occur from gulping food and swallowed air and is potentially life threatening
Like humans, pets who gulp their food might also not feel their satiety and thus, have an increased desire for more food, at least in the short term. This could lead to increased begging or those sad faces that make you want to give them more food or treats.
Featuring meal-lengthening ridges and mazes, the Slow Feeding Bowl keep pups engaged for up to 10 times longer at chow time.
This Slow Feeding Bowl is designed to prevent gulping. It has ridges and other barriers that break up the bowl’s surface area, which prevents the pet from being able to inhale their food in one or two gulps.
This Slow Feeding Bowl can help reduce the likelihood that your pet will gulp down their meals and thus it is meant to alleviate the issues associated with fast eating.
It's natural for dogs to play with their food. Add a bit of fun to every bite with a Slow Feeding Bowl!
