Most dogs will gulp or swallow their meal in seconds as they would in nature as a pack animal. The difference is that there is no pack so the dog just gulps the food down in seconds alone. The gulping can create serious medical problems from bloat to twisted bowel. SloDog is the best no gulp slow feeder on the market. Most slow feeders work by putting obstructions or maze like structures to make it difficult for the dog to get to the food. The dog actually has to chase the food around the bowl to get to eat. This can be extremely frustrating to the dog and can cause stress and anxiety in the animal.
A greyhound who is still new to the pet world can gulp his food for a few months and needs to be encourages to slow down. This slow feeders are simple to use, and don’t add any other pressures onto the dog. You will need to raise the slow feeder in the same way you would raise a regular feeding bowl.
SloDog is a unique approach to slow feeding or anti gulping. By changing from a bowl to a plate a much bigger surface area is available to the feeding dog. All food is in plain sight and does not have to be chased so avoiding frustration. We simply designed a device that splits the meal into multi mini meals by spreading the measure into lots of small shallow pockets. The dog simply eats one mini meal at a time. If the dog tries to eat from two pockets at a time the food just falls from the dog’s open mouth. With its unique design our SloDog invention is logical and simple. It is specially designed for relaxed no-stress feed time. Our testing has shown that SloDog can slow the dog’s feeding down from a few seconds to MANY minutes!
