He's eight years old, nearly nine, and still (STILL!) eats his kibble so quickly he coughs and sneezes. We've tried different bowls. We've given him wet food. We've moistened his kibble with stock, water, you name it. Oscar, our bulldog, eats his food so quickly he nearly always gets kibble dust or a full piece of kibble going down or up the wrong way which results in a coughing sneezing fit that can last up to ten minutes.
We also work with a lot of dogs each week who do the exact same thing. They are so excited to eat, they gobble it up too qiuckly. Sneezing and coughing ensue. You know the drill.
We've explored other bowl options in the past but the rivulets most bowls put in place to slow our guy down do nothing of the sort. So we're excited to see another (albeit strange-looking) option. The Green Interactive Slow Dog Feeder looks like it might be just the challenge our Bulldog needs to slow his chow down so he can enjoy his kibble and reduce the coughing. It's on order. We'll let you know how it goes.
Do you have any tried and true tricks for slowing your dog's chow roll?
