Eating too quickly is bad for your dog’s health, just like it is for your own health. A dog bowl for fast eaters is a simple solution. These bowls usually have several prongs or posts in them that force the dog to slow down and work around the post to get to the food. This means that your dog has to eat more slowly, which benefits his health and your lifestyle by reducing the occurrence of regurgitation. This also helps to prevent more serious problems, like bloat or gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV). Be sure to choose the proper size for your pet so that he can still get to the food inside.
