Slow Feeding

Dogs love mealtime — that is an almost universal fact. Sometimes, though, they like this time of the day a little too much. If your dog eats meals quickly and has health issues as a result, they may benefit from a slow feeder. 

Slow feeders like the Gobblestopper® from Loving Pets can promote the well-being of your furry friend by helping to restrain fast munching at mealtime. Plus, it works in ANY bowl with a flat bottom!

Benefits of Slow Feeder Bowls for Dogs

A slow feeder may benefit your pup in several ways, including:

  • Improves digestion: A slow feeder or slow-eating bowl can help pets with digestive issues caused by fast eating. 
  • Helps with portion control: Dog's slow feeder bowls are especially helpful for pups who gain weight easily. A slow feeder is an excellent way, as a pet parent, to help your dog reach a healthy size. 
  • Eliminates gas and bloating: Bloating often happens when your pet eats too fast. Slow feeders help moderate how quickly your pet eats, which can prevent uncomfortable bloating. In this way, a slow feeder dog bowl may be able to save your pup from digestion issues.
  • Slows down eating to avoid choking: A slow feeder helps moderate the rate at which your dog consumes their food while also giving them more time to chew it before swallowing, which can save your pet from choking. 
  • Modifies eating habits: A slow feeder bowl will help you encourage new eating habits in your pup without you having to lift a finger! 

Can I Put Wet Dog Food in My Slow Feeder?

Yes, you can put wet food in your dog's slow feeder bowl — just be sure to clean it before each meal.

How Does a Dog Slow Feeder Work?

A slow feeder attachment, like the Gobblestopper® from Loving Pets, slows down your pup's eating by blocking certain sections of the bowl to prevent easy access to the food. 

This make your pet work harder for every bite as they have to maneuver the food into an area where they can reach it. This method slows down your dog's eating so that you can keep them at a healthy weight and prevent vomiting, gas and indigestion.
