Why you will Choose SuperDesign Slow Feeder Dog Bowl?
I have 3 small dogs. I bought this bowl, mainly because my 9 pound Chihuahua ended up with Bloat (a serious issue). I noticed that after she ate, her stomach was hard and she clearly didn’t feel herself. After a trip to the vet hospital, I switched to these bowls and have not had another issue yet. This was 8 months ago. Everybody is happy.
This is the perfect little bowl for my fur baby, Lil Man. He’s a chunky monkey, a 12lb Yorkie and this helps slow his eating down. He has a collapsing trach and does some chocking when excited or eating too fast. This has helped tremendously and was recommended by vet. It’s the perfect size for 1/4-1/2 cup servings of dry food and I add some chicken broth and cut up chicken. He’s one happy little pupper 🐾🐾
My15 lb JRT eats her food way too fast. This bowl did not help with her gulping down her food as much as I had hoped. Still clocks at under a minute. Probably doesn’t help that the cat likes to stare at her while she eats (see pic). The good thing about this bowl is that it’s the perfect size (most slow feeder bowls are bigger than she is and, while comical, would seem impractical). I still have to give her a little bit of food at a time. Mixing a bit of wet food helps to makes it sticky and more difficult for her to remove the food from the bowl. It is easy to clean (dishwasher) and sturdy (I have dropped it many times and it hasn’t broken yet).
Got this for my fat cat to slow her down. She's a nervous eater and scarfs food down when it's available, often puking as a result. We're pretty sure this has reduced her vomiting substantially, and she's even lost a bit of weight in the last few weeks.
I went through SO many slow feed bowls (ordered but not used) before we found this one. Some of them were way too big (though being touted as cat appropriate) and others were shockingly pointy and could have really caused damage to a small mouth. This one is the perfect size for all cats. My guy is a very large tabby and this bowl was just the right size. He gets a 1/4 cup of a small sized kibble twice a day so I needed a bowl where the food wasn't super spread out that it made it too frustrating for him and also wasn't so deep that his mouth/tongue couldn't get to it without knocking his teeth off the raised columns. As you can see from the picture his food fits very well. I also have a petite princess as well and she has eaten from it too without any concern. The columns are large enough to not cause damage and I love that they are blunted so that they don't poke their mouth or slip between their gums and teeth. And best of all, he now takes about 20 minutes to finish his food (and sometimes even stops and comes back later to finish!). I've seen a great reduction in bloat vomiting and his stools are passing much better due to better digestion. If you need a slow feed bowl for a cat (or tiny dog) you really needn't look any further!
