What is a slow feeder dog bowl?
A slow feeder dog bowl is intended to slow down the eating process, giving your dog more time to chew before swallowing. A slow feeder bowl or interactive feeder is a dog bowl or enrichment mat that has obstacles that your dog needs to work around to reach their food. Slow feeders come in varying levels of difficulty. A harder challenge will come from a bowl or enrichment mat that has multiple obstacles to navigate around.
The Zee.Bowl by Zee.Dog is a basic level slow feeder with one central raised obstacle. It’s a great option for dogs that get frustrated or lose interest with slow feeders that are too complex.
What are the benefits of a slow bowl or enrichment feeder?
Slowing your dog's eating can help to prevent digestive discomfort and issues like nausea and vomiting after eating. Fast-eating pups that gulp down their meals are also at higher risk for bloat, Besides choosing high quality dog food, a dog slow feeder can help to prevent this.
By slowing your dog down while eating and encouraging them to chew their food, they will be able to better digest and absorb nutrients in food.
Slow feeder mats for dogs are another great way to make mealtimes slower and more challenging for your dog. Lick mats made by Messy Mutts or Lickimat make the dog work harder for their food by turning mealtime into an enrichment activity. Lick mats for dogs work like a puzzle as the dog has to navigate around the raised textured surface which holds the food in place preventing them from gulping it down.
Should I consider a raised dog feeder for my dog?
Elevated dog bowls help with swallowing. When your dog has to reach down to eat food, they have to move food against gravity up the oesophagus. When you elevate your pets bowls, it makes swallowing much easier.
Raised bowls provide a healthier posture for dogs to eat their food. Feeding your dog at a more comfortable height enables relief from neck muscle stress and tension while eating. Raised dog bowls can also be great for older dogs because there's less strain on their ageing joints.
Elevated dog bowls for large dogs can be particularly beneficial. The Zee.Bowl easily adjusts to the right height depending on your dog’s size. Spinning the top section of the bowl will expand and reduce the height from 13cm, up to about 30cm tall. As the Zee.Bowl is an all-in-one raised bowl, this eliminates the need for a dog bowl stand.
