Hyper Pet SloDog Slow Feeders prevent your dog from gulping or swallowing their food which can create serious medical problems such as air in the stomach, vomitting, bloat, or a flipped stomach.
These slow feeding plates offer a unique approach to slow feeding and anti-gulping meal time. SloDog feeders are flat and wide with multiple shallow pockets. Spreading the food across a wide surface area allows the dog to see all that they are being served, and limits the natural inclination to eat as fast as possible to get all the food available. The small pockets create multiple "mini-meals" in the dog's mind. During Hyper Pet's testing, they found that the SloDog feeders extend meal time from a few seconds to many minutes!
These feeders are well-made and sturdy, but have not made either of us slow down very much. We still manage to inhale our daily meals, but we appreciate our people trying! These might work better for others, we're just not your average eaters!
I like this product. My food bowl stays in place while I pick it my favorite morsels and spit out the ones I don't care for. The tray makes it so easy for my mom to clean up.
