Does Your Dog Eat Too Fast? Try a Slo-Bowl

Slow Feeder Dog BowlDid you just give your dog some kibble and seconds later it’s gone? Are you wondering if he inhaled it? Alas, there’s a great solution – we fell in love with the Slo-Bowl Slow Feeder, which will slow down your dog from eating too fast by turning meal time into a game.

slo-bowl labRather than chomping a meal down in a few bites, the Slo-Bowl gives your dog more of a challenge as they can’t easily access all their food at once. Your dog’s tongue will quickly learn to chase food through the Slo-Bowl maze of ridges and valleys, making dinner time feel more like a hunt.

Slo-BowlWhen your dog wolfs down his food, he is also swallowing a large amount of air. This can result in burping or farting, however you probably would prefer your dog to do less of that. By prolonging feeding times, Slo-Bowls also reduce the risks for bloat, regurgitation, and canine obesity.

Dogs love playing and eating so we’re quite sure your speed-eating dog will love the Slo-Bowl. It comes in a variety of styles, colors and sizes. The rubber-molded foundation reduces sliding and food spillage. It also has great reviews and is a top seller on Amazon.
