Tips For Choosing Pet Feeder

Slow feed bowls are designed to prevent gulping. They typically have ridges or 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. These types of bowls can help reduce the likelihood that your pet will gulp down their meals and thus, they are meant to alleviate the issues associated with fast eating. After all, food bloat, which can occur from gulping food and swallowed air and is potentially life-threatening

However, slow feed bowls can also potentially cause some health and other problems related to their construction. Such as pets can chip their teeth from biting around the barriers, or make the food mess. Another negative side is the slow feed bowls can also be harder to clean properly than regular bowls.

Speed eaters often ingest air along with their food (aerophagia). The consequences of this can range from mild discomfort to fatality. Like in humans, swallowing excess air can lead to excess gas and stomach aches in pups. However, dogs have the unique risk of getting bloat. While bloat in humans may result in a temporary inability to squeeze into skinny jeans, the consequences for dogs are far more serious.

Though experts are still mystified by the exact cause of bloat, it is known that excess air in the stomach (typically caused by overly quick eating) is a common culprit. The risk is even greater in larger breeds, deep-chested breeds, and dogs who exercise immediately after eating. However, no dog is immune to bloat. Therefore, slow feeder bowls can protect your dog from thunderous flatulence and serious ailments. Plus, they can save you from constant worry!

In addition to the physical benefits, slow feeder bowls can make meals even more fun for your dog! I know what you’re thinking, “How on Earth could my cuisine-crazed canine enjoy feeding time more than she already does!?” Well, slow feeders are like dog-friendly puzzles. They transform meals into rewarding games. Wild dogs have to use problem-solving to get their meals. Slow feeder bowls can ignite your pup’s instincts (yes, even your couch potato pug) to use problem-solving in eating. So, slow feeders stimulate your dog’s brain and taste buds simultaneously!
