    DefaultStop Inhaling the food

    Hunter eats like its his last supper every feeding. We have tried separating him from our other dog Chrome to help him slow down a little. I have heard good things about the slow down bowls on here. I am wondering has anyone tried the portion pacer ball or something similar, see link.

    Omega Paw Steel Portion Pacer for Dogs - Sale - Dog - PetSmart

    I would hate to have to buy a new dog bowl as we have stainless steel ones. I am not sure if the pacer balls work though. My breeder told me that its best to use stainless steal dog bowls as its easier to clean and won't change the color on their nose(very strange).

    Any suggestions

    Kate inhales her food too. We bought the brake-fast bowl. It did slow her down a little. good luck.

    I use dura-pet's slow feed bowl - which looks sort of like a sombrero for one of my dogs. It's stainless - I'd never use anything but stainless.

    The other dog is such a slow eater I have to supervise - otherwise he'd take a break and Diesel would finish his food too.

    Java east too fast also. She actually eats so fast she ends up running outside in the middle of dinner, throwing up and eating it again, then running back inside to finish.
    Nothing I have tried has slowed her down yet.

    Any heavy balls will do the trick or with kibble scatter it on a tray ! No need to buy special bowls then !

    I know what you mean by inhaling food ! Dylan used to suck his food up but now all that he inhales is bread as a treat.

    thanks! We don't use anything but stainless steel bowls except for the portable dog bowl in the car. I will a heavy ball in his food. I fed him on a cookie sheet today which worked pretty good, just awkward.

    Homer has gotten worse lately, he has even vomited after eating a couple times. I began dropping a large "turkey leg" shapped nylabone toy in the bowl and it helped a lot (he still swallows fast, but definitely slowed him down). I think anything heavy will do the trick

    I have a 5 month old puppy that eats so fast that she would vomit during EVERY meal. I just started feeding her in a flat pan that is about 18 inches in diameter. I spread the food out so she has to work a bit harder to get her kibble. It has worked like a charm. No vomiting since we did this. Now I just have to find something like this pan in stainless. What I am using now is a metal pig pan.

    We use the brake-fast bowl for Wyatt. It does slow him down a bit but he still manages to inhale and choke on his food occasionally!
