Slow Feeder Plate – slow your dog’s feeding from seconds to many minutes!
Most dogs will gulp or swallow their meal in seconds. Gulping can create serious medical problems from bloat to twisted bowel. SloDog is the best no-gulp slow feeder on the market. Most go slow feeding bowls 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, especially for brachycephalic dogs such as pugs and bulldogs.
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 it avoids frustration. The meal is spread into lots of small shallow pockets across the plate. 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, the SloDog slow feeding plate is simple and easy to clean, and it can slow the dog’s feeding down from a few seconds to MANY minutes! This may give your dog the feeling of getting more food at each meal although the portion size is the same. Like people, dogs’ bodies need time to register that they are full, so slowing down their meal may help to prevent overeating (although don’t count on this for the notoriously hungry breeds!)
