This can be quite a problem with dogs, and something we do need to address. Gulping food down rapidly means they are not chewing their food properly which can lead to gagging and choking or cause digestive issues and even bloat. Thankfully, someone invented go slow bowls. These bowls are specially formulated in design so that your dog has to eat at a slower pace. They can’t get their whole mouth into the bowl so have to use there tongue or manoeuvre their mouth to reach the food or water. This reduces the amount of air your dog is ingesting while eating or drinking hence reducing the risk of bloat and leading to improved digestion. It can in some cases reduce vomiting as the food intake is slower and better digested.
