Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristineG No more choking!!
I have four dogs, and each races through their food so that the first one to finish doesn't dive into their bowl to steal the remaining food. I usually need to play guard for one dog in particular so his food isn't poached by his brother. Three of the four inhale food without much chewing going on, I hate hearing them cough & choke from eating this way, so this bowl was a true godsend. The three have definitely slowed to a non-choking pace, they "might" even be chewing now, at least a little. I still need to guard one bowl, but at least we've slowed the pace for a more healthy mealtime.
Bowls are solid and well-contructed. They have a rubberized bottom that is meant to prevent slippage, but when they are nearing the bottom of the bowl, their enthusiasm is stronger than the rubber, so they scoot around a bit. I don't mind, and neither do they.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ACS1 Love this bowl
I have this bowl in the extra small for my large maine coon mix kitty who is a very fast eater. This slows him down considerably. He is a recent rescue who has a lot of stress related to food and is also on a diet so balancing these has been a challenge. I am currently putting 2oz of wet food in this 3x/day and it has held up beautifully, though I have just been hand washing. This is the perfect size for his amount of food.
I have also slowed down his eating a little and noticeably reduced his food stress by introducing a foraging toy that he has access to at all times- if he has access to food and knows it will always be there he's not so scared about it disappearing if he doesn't absorb it as soon as I set it down. Of course I set the foraging toy on a hard setting so he "hunts" for it, which is fun for him and keeps him from getting it all out at once and making himself sick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrissie Really helped!
My dachshund eats so fast that he barely chews, just swallows his food whole. This bowl really slowed down his eating so he actually chews a bit while he's trying to get the next bite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Scamp1 Good features
However, it did not slow the speed of eating fast as much as I hoped it would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yoro500 It works
we have a 16 week old standard poodle puppy who would race-eat our 68 pound adult Standard, and both slowed down. They even lick out their bowls when done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by patmadmom Just what I needed
We have a 3 month old golden retriever puppy who inhales food. This product cured that. It's also easy to clean, pick up from the floor, and I like the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nana3g Works Great!
Purchased this product for my gulping golden retriever. It works great. Her gulping has ended. Her "gas" problem has decreased significantly! Purchased the anti-gas pills, also. Along with an evening walk, her "gas" issues have greatly improved.
