When a dog eats too quickly, it swallows too much air. This can cause upset stomach, vomiting, regurgitating or having a lot of gas. More seriously a risk of choking, digestive problems and canine obesity.
Dogs with deeper chests, like the boxer, boerboel or dachshund, who eat their food quickly are at greater risk of developing bloat, also known as GDV (Gastric Dilation Volvulus). This is a life threatening condition. Gas builds up in the dog’s stomach and can not be released. As the gas accumulates, the stomach swells and twists. This can happen in any type of dog, but more frequently in deep-chested dogs.
This can be avoided with the Fun Feeder. Not only does it slow your dog down but it can also be foraging fun for your dog. The Fun Feeder is like a treat dispenser, your dog has to find the food between the ridges and mazes.
