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).

Perfect gadget for a GULPER
My lil Maltese gulps her water n food as if there is no tmoro!!! This feeding gadget distracts her from doing that. I separate the beans, carrots, n kibbles in the ridges this feeder has and this actually became more of an interactive piece of toy for her!!! Works for me and my lil spoiled maltese is happy and learning to be a lil lady by eating her food more slowly. No worries of bloat or any other digestive issues. Made of very durable material. Chewy.com fulfills their VERY QUICK DELIVERY!!

OK for medium size dogs
I would recommend this product for medium size dogs--25lbs or more. I can see how it could be really helpful for them. But----
I have been looking for a small slow feed bowl for some time now. This is the smallest I have found and it barely suffices for one of my dogs. It is still too big for any of the others, they are all 10 lbs or less. If anyone knows where I can find a truly small one I would love to hear it.

Great bowl, for fast eaters!
This item helps my dog slow down enough to enjoy her meal.

Not so hot for my dog.
Sometimes it works and sometime not. My little 13 lb. Terrier mix doesn't even chew her food. She still sometmes eats it so fast she gets air in her stomach and throws it up. Not much though so it has worked pretty good. All dogs are different so others may have a different experience. My opinion is try it.

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.
