With so many products on the market to help address the issue of pets wolfing down their food, I find that the ones like slow feed bowls only compound the problem. These bowls can range from having a spoke-like design to a dome in the middle to slow down the amount of food that goes down the hatch at a given time. However, in an even greater effort to ingest the food, I find that most dogs end up get more worked up about their meal than usual, even swallowing a lot more air. These issues are not only leading causes of bloat (something these products were meant to help avoid!), but they typically , as well.

Hi I own and breed Boston Terriers here in the UK and because they all eat so fast and suffer with vomiting and wind after eating I have been testing these anti gulping bowls – I first bought a plastic small size Brake Fast bowls, and found that it did not work that well for my Bostons who also have short wide muzzles like pugs – and I did not like the way it slides all over the floor, so we tried a Dogit Go Slow but again they could not get their noses in it to eat the last amount of biscuits also I found it shattered after only a week of use because of the dogs were constantly banging thier teeth against it to get at the biscuits that remained in the bowl – This week I decided to try the new savic Slow down and again have a similar problem with the dogs not being able to get at the biscuits, So was doing a search online as I was thinking of trying to get hold of a metal Brake Fast Bowl and came accross your thread – after reading about it damaging teeth, my thinking is to try the Durapet Slow Feeder as I have had little sucess with the three designs of anti gulping bowls I have trialed so far, Could you tell me what size Durapet Slow Feed you use for your pugs please? as I could not find any info which size / breed suitability and as there is no suppler here in the UK I wanted to ensure I ordered the most suitable size for my dogs. Any help with this would be much appreciated… Thanks in advance Jo and the Daltdach Bostons…

To test the Anti-Gulping Dog Dish, we put it to the test with Irie. First, we gave Irie 3/4 cup dry kibble in a traditional dog bowl one morning. It took her 53 seconds to eat. (You’ll see this in the video above.) That evening, we gave her 3/4 cup of the same kibble in the DogIt Go Slow Anti-Gulping Dog Dish. The same food took her 1 minute, 27 seconds to eat, over half a minute longer than in the traditional bowl! A big paws up for the DogIt Go-Slow Anti-Gulping Dog Dish!
