Whilst gulping is just bad manners in humans, it can create serious medical problems for your dog! These medical issues range from minor complaints like stomach ache, indigestion and excess gas, to more serious ones like vomiting, life-threatening gastric bloat or twisted bowel.
The SloDog No Gulp is the latest slow feeder on the market and it was designed right here in Australia.
HOW DOES THE SLODOG NO GULP WORK?
SloDog is a unique approach to slow feeding or anti gulping. By changing from a bowl to a plate, a much bigger surface area is made available for your feeding dog. All the food is in plain sight and does not have to be chased around, thereby avoiding frustration.
The device was designed to split one large meal into multiple mini meals, spreading the food into lots of small shallow pockets. Your dog simply eats one mini meal at a time.
If your dog tries to eat from two pockets at a time, the food just falls from their open mouth. The plate will hold up to 2 cups (around 500ml).
With its unique design the SloDog invention is logical and simple. It was specially designed for relaxed no-stress feeding time. Testing has shown that using a SloDog No Gulp feeder can slow your dog’s food intake from a few seconds to many minutes!
This slow feeder - like most slow feeder dog bowls we tested - works best with dry food so if you're feeding home-cooked meals or a raw diet exclusively, this device may not work as well for you.
Our opinion is that this device will work a lot better to slow down smaller dogs. We tested it a few times with both our Belgian Malinois and after a couple of sessions, it took them -with their very long tongues - less than half their normal time when they used the SloDog.
