We have been using our Slo-Bowl for about a month now. When I say “we”, I mean Darby. Eating too fast is certainly not a problem for the wonder dog that I have to beg to eat… which would be Olivia. Darby used to be able to plow through her 3/4 cup of kibble in about 20 seconds. Not quite as fast as a Labrador, but still faster than is considered healthy. I’d been pursuing the slow feeding bowls since the day that Darby came to live with us.. then they went on sale at Petco! For the low low price of $12.99, and a 20% off coupon, it was a good investment. I don’t know that I would pay full price for it – Darby can lick it clean in just under a minute. I think with the spiral, the food stays too contained still. I have seen some of the bowls that have pokey-uppy places (yes, that is a word), and that may be more successful in slowing down “Darby the Vacuum”.
The Kyjen website has a lot of options for slow feeders, and they are certainly not the only place to find them – but since this is the version that we are using…. here is a link.
