Dogit Pink Go Slow Anti-Gulping Dog Bowl
I'm glad I bought it. It really helps.
My Pug is fed twice a day and she inhales most of her kibble, instead of chewing it. About a month ago, she choked because she had a bunch of kibble stuck in her throat. She couldn't breathe. I had to fish out the kibble so she could breathe again. I knew then, that it was time to do something more than just monitor her while she's eating. We started hand-feeding her. But I couldn't depend on her sitter to do the same when we go out of town. I told a colleague about what happened and she recommended this bowl. I had seen bowls like this before and thought that it wouldn't work for a flat-nosed dog. ...I figured that she wouldn't be able to get all of the kibble out of the bowl with the obstructions. But, I took a chance and bought it, and it really helps. I think she still doesn't chew most of her food, but she can't get as many kibbles in her mouth at one time with this bowl. Which is great. We have always monitored her when she's eating and we will continue to do so, because it's the right thing to do. But I have more peace of mind with this bowl now.

This bowl DOES slow down eating. Nice heavy weight too.
My Shih Tzu girl, dachshund/cocker girl, and chihuahua/terrier boy all gulped their food in a race to the finish. Now I hear crunching from the kibbles being chewed, and no more loud burps when finished. I ordered size small and it's a fine size for my dogs (Chewy also has other color bowls).

This product really helped elevate gulping of food and water.
I bought this mostly for our dog's food, but bought one for her water as well, so they'd match. I've noticed it takes her much longer to eat and drink. This has been very helpful in keeping abdominal distension down.
