Let’s talk about it! There are so many options available, from ceramic to pottery to plastic, stainless steel and even bowls that match your home decor. But did you know that some that look like a puzzle and others that are elevated actually can help improve your dog’s health? We love slow feeder bowls for dogs because they force your pup to slow down and eat! It also makes them work a little bit for the food.
Does your dog scarf down their food so fast? A puzzle toy or slow feeder is a great option for them. Or, if you want to test a method before buying a new bowl, strategically place tennis balls within the pup’s kibble bowl! Navigating around the tennis balls makes them slow down.
Big dogs require elevated food feeders simply because it makes it easier for them to get their food rather than going all the way down to the ground. But did you know that this also helps with gastrointestinal troubles? Just elevating food and water bowls can help the dogs’ digestive system by eliminating air from being ingested, which can cause pain or gas. Also, large dogs that might be subject to bloat need to eat from an elevated position, too. These are easy tricks to try before looking for a new food or medicinal options if your Wagger is having some gastrointestinal troubles.
