new food bowl
« on: September 05, 2006, 02:35:07 pm »
someone may have already posted on this.  we just got in the store a new bowl called "brake-fast".  it is a food dish that has "pegs" in it.  The dog has to slow down and work the food around these pegs.  This is supposed to cut down on gastric torsion.  I think it sounds like a great product.  Wonder if anyone has it and how it works with their dogs.

This looks like a great product.  I do wonder if the dog's muzzle can get too big for it.

We use to just put a toy (kong) in Lucah's bowl and that helped, but recently we switched to a flat baking pan and that seems to help also.

Looks like a nice idea but I agree about the muzzle thing... on that website they have a video you can watch to see how the bowl slows down this dog's eating time. But it's a Doberman! His pointy nose fits in there fine, but I think a dog with a larger muzzle would get pretty frustrated trying to eat out of that bowl!

they are supposedly supposed to have a larger bowl out soon, so i assume that bigger snouts  could fit.

Hm... To a point I wonder if that's just a little too cautious. But I do see your point. Thanks for sharing the info, Holly. You're a wealth of info, as always!

I wouldn't have put two and two together myself. Looks like some furball will be getting a set of stainless himself soon.
