This cleverly designed bowl plate feeder by Slodog – I have tried and tested this myself on my own dogs. They ate at a sensible pace instead of 4 dogs racing each other to see who gets the left overs. I tried dried food which worked really well as the dogs had to really use there mouth to search for the food and slowed them down. I also pasted wet food mixed with dry into it too, and that worked much better as the dogs licked the plate clean but really took there time which was stimulating for them keeping them occupied. My next suggestion for this feeder bowl plate will be to spread it with a food that can be chilled so in the hot months they can lick at the food and this will help cool and occupy them too.
The color pink is a deeper pink almost as best as I can describe salmon pink.
I only like to sell items I have tried , and tested on my own dogs and this has the thumbs up for me. It also is non slip. I think the idea is great and will keep the dogs occupied too for a while almost like an interactive way to feed your dog or puppy.
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. 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!
