    Slow feed bowl

    I just switched Gracie to a slow feed stainless steel bowl about a month ago. She seems to have less gas....and I was concerned about bloat. Just curious how many other people use one.

    We use just a regular stainless bowl, but Dee is a picky eater and usually has kibble out all day and will feed when she feels like it. Usually it is in the evening and she takes her sweet time eating. What food are you feeding? We switched from Royal Canine to Fromm and notice a reduction in gas.

    She was on full feed too but she started to get fat. She was on Fromm now she is on Earthborn meadow feast holistic. Just did the switch this last weekend. The vet thought she maybe had some food allergies so I switched her to that one.

    We purchased a slow feed bowl for our new puppy, plastic with divider in it from Petco. She has trouble eating from it, has trouble getting her face in to the food. I need something to slow her down. I feed her 1/12 cups twice a day, per the bag instructions. She is 16 lbs and 3 mos old. She is highly motivated by food and sometimes even throws up after and it’s obvious she didn’t chew her food.
    Do all English Bull Dogs eat like this? What can I do? Should I keep her on the slow feed bowl?

    Just brought our bully home yesterday and last night she devoured her food so fast, she was choking on it! This morning I just put a little at a time in her dish and that seemed to do the trick. II will look at the slow-feed bowls but yes, I suspect they might not work well for short nosed breeds.
