    Welcome to Lab ownership. lol It seems like they're always starving. However, having said that, we need to decide if your Lab starving is normal Lab stuff or maybe something else is going on.

    First, what are you feeding, how often and how much?

    How old is the dog?

    When was the last time the vet checked a stool for parasites?

    My puppy used to eat fast. 50grams in just 15" seconds! Then I got the Brake Fast Bowl and it works great! She eats slowly. It cost me around €55 (euro) including shipping but it's worth it. I didn't want her to have a bloat or something else.




    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.

    Hi and welcome to the forum! Many labs wolf their food down. I have never had that problem. I'm justy lucky I guess. How old is your pup? Has he had his vet check? How's his weight? Has he been checked for worms? What are you feeding him? We love pictures here, and look forward to seeing some of your boy..

    As soon as mine finishes breakfast, she starts waiting for dinner. All the walks and activity in between meals are only a temporary distraction.

    There are bowls designed to slow them down. I have one for Judy and Bruno. It slows them down, but not much. Other ideas I have read about here: Put food on a large sheet pan spread out...or put food in a cup cake pan.
