What is a slow feed bowl and why you should get one for your dog or your cat

Hi, everybody! Your buddy John here, and I’m very excited to talk to you about something really cool I have bought for my cat. I was noticing my furry friend was eating everything at once, and it got me worried as it soon started crying about what I believe were stomach aches. So the next day I called my vet and asked if there’s something I can do to prevent my pet from overeating. And this is when I was introduced to this innovative product – a slow feed bowl.

 

 

It is a clever tool that can be used with both dogs and cats, and which is utilized to correct their overeating tendencies. They usually have the shape of a traditional bowl, and the only difference is that they come with ridges, barriers and lumps that prevent the pet from taking a large chunk of food. It divides the food you put in it, making it hard for the tongue of the pet to reach it, thus slowing down the eating process.

This greed is not only bad because it can lead to obesity and heart problems, but it can also cause vomiting and gastrointestinal discomfort. And most importantly, it can be a choking hazard. Using a product like this can make a difference, as your pet will be healthier and will learn to be patient, and at the same time, it won’t be as hyperactive as it would be if it ate all the food at once.

Everyone should own one of these products, no matter if you own a cat or a dog because it is a good way to train your dog to behave. Just pay a bit of attention to what model you buy, as it can harm the oral cavity of your companion if it has a spiky design or if it’s created from materials that can’t resist your pet’s chewing habits.

The slow feeding items are perfect if you go to your job in the morning and come back in the evening because you can ensure your pet has food for an entire day. And they can also be used with water if your problem is at the opposite side of the spectrum.

To conclude this excited rant, these products have impressed me. Now my cat is healthy and as active as always, and I can leave the house without worrying my cat will starve before I come back from work because it has eaten all the food I put in the bowl. And it gave me the idea that besides my plans to become a pet clothing designer, I could as well design slow feeding bowls.
