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).

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.

No more upchuck!
I am so pleased with the two small bowls I got for my cats. My boys want to eat all the time and gobble anything down lickety split. My older cat needs to have medicine sprinkled on his food twice a day and in the mornings he is usually so hungry he inhales his food and then vomits it back up---wasted medicine and who knows how much he actually got of it. Since using the bowls I've no more morning upchuck to clean up and both of the kitties eating has slowed way down. Very thankful!

Does what it says it will dol
This product DOES slow my dog down from gulping and is really helping her to not throw up. Should have bought a bigger water bowl.

Good product but not for my Boston
Thought this would slow down a gulping Boston Terrier, but just frustrated her. Probably not the best choice for her flat little face!!
Product seems well made & sturdy. A good buy for the price.

I have two different sizes. It does slow down the feeding process. I am curious as to what is the best way to clean them? They are slimy, slippery even after washing and soaking them! I've tried dish soap, vinegar and bleach & water. Any suggestions would be great!
