Dog eating too fast

    Recommended Posts

    I noticed that my GSP bitch was vomiting her dry food. She would gulp down the nuts then walk off get sick and then I'ld see her eating the vomit which by the sound of the crunching wasn't chewed at all. She is just basically gulping down the dry nuts which can't be good for her.

    I wet the food this evening with boiling water and when it cooled I left her have it. I put it down, went to the back door and she was barking at me. She would normally be barking at me before meals looking for food, I was thinking why the hell is she barking at me shes just got her food. The bowl was empty, she had basically inhailed the whole bowl of food in under a %&$#ing second. On the plus side I didn't see her get sick.

    Basically - this can't be good for her. I feed her with my GWP bitch.

     Anyone had this before, how can I slow her down so that she doesn't do herself damage. Should I feed her separate to the other older  dog.

    There are special bowls that slow dogs down ..they have like small towers inside the bowl and the dog has to lick between them to get the food.

    I have used the special bowls described above with success but first I would try feeding the dogs separately. 

    Good luck whatever you try.

    My jack Russell would eat her dry food in less than 30 seconds I bought a special bowl with the towers in it so she has to lick it up now it takes her about 3-4 minutes to eat the same amount 

    They really do work well

    My Labrador was a fast eater, clearing his bowl in seconds. We got him a special bowl and it's slowed him down considerably. Well worth having.

    Working gundog company does a cracking anti gulp feeder,more like a plate that a bowl (so no good if mixing with water0

    I've had a few for years and still as good as new (including coping with a GWP), had a few cheap 1's from pets at home first didn't last anytime before a dog would knck them and crack them

     

    Highly recommend them
