Our dogs’ modern, unnatural eating habits are responsible for some pretty serious health issues. Bloat, which kills around 20,000 dogs every year, is typically attributed to rapid eating. Dogs that eat too fast also tend to overeat, which has led to increases in canine obesity. Being overweight, in turn, increases a dog’s risk for cardiac disease, heat stroke, and respiratory conditions. Veterinarians across the country agree that slower feeding is safer feeding. By prolonging feeding times, the Slo-Bowl™ allows dogs to eat the healthy way while reducing the risk for bloat, regurgitation, and canine obesity. When it’s time to dine, feed your dog with peace of mind.
Our feeders are designed to put the brakes on overeager eaters. But, unlike bowls that simply hinder a dog’s ability to eat, this dish actually makes a game out of gorging. Dogs learn to “chase” their food through a maze of ridges and valleys, which makes dinnertime feel more like a hunt. And, because the Slo-Bowl™ “rewards” their play with bits of food, dogs become more and more engaged as the meal goes on. Foraging for every bite, furry friends eat a healthier, more balanced meal. Plus, a non-slip rubber base holds the bowl in place during dining, preventing pups from sending their food flying. Give your dog the bowl that adds a bit of fun to every bite.
I live my life pretty fast—playing fetch, chasing squirrels, chewing up shoes—you get the gist. But, sometimes it’s good for me to slow down a little. That’s why I eat my food out of a Slo-Bowl™. With a regular dog dish, I can consume all my kibble in a matter of moments. But, with a Slo-Bowl™, I’m forced to eat at a slower, healthier pace. My vet says it also helps prevent bloat, canine obesity, and regurgitation. I’ve still got a lot of tennis balls to chase, but chowtime shouldn’t be a race. I live fast, but I eat slow.
