I got this for my small dog, as dog slowfeeders are too large for her. It's perfect for her as an easy bowl, since there are only 3 dividers. We alternate this with 2 other slowfeeders that are a bit more complicated. However, I wouldn't use this with cats often since its so deep it could cause whisker fatigue.
This was purchased for my cat and it does slow the pace at which she eats. Been using it for about a week - too early to determine if it will solve the problem but pleased so far. Inexpensive and worth trying.
This is a good, deep slow feeder. It is lightweight, but sturdy and goes through the dishwasher well on the top rack. The fish shaped posts are tall and far enough away from each other that the cat can fit their face in the bowl. Works great for dry food, as well as chunky and pâte wet food.
Bowl is a little deeper than expected which made it hard for my cat to access food at first, thankfully he is getting the hang of it. (He really only eats from the center part and I have to shake the food around for him to access it better) Also it is a light plastic so it could be easy for other kitties to dump over if thats their thing. Overall I think it is helping to decrease Link shoveling food into his mouth!
I was excited for these and they do work in terms of slow feeders. The only issue is they aren't non skid so the bowl moves around the floor while they eat. I'm sure I could DIY some non stick things but for now they won't work. If you have a non slip feeding mat I'm sure it would be great.
This one piece bowl has a non skid base. We got it for our food gobbler, EEK!. She is confused by it, but it's amusing to watch her fumble foot the food out of the bowl.
I purchased these because I have a couple cats that eat too fast and puke. Sadly it didn't seem to work, they still eats too fast and puke. They seem to eat out of the middle just fine it doesn't sow them down at all.
DISCLAIMER: I am a Chewy employee. The bowl looks like it should work perfectly, I saw no reason for it not to work, but somehow my cat has outsmarted the bowl. I have tried filling it normally and tried only putting a little in the bowl and every single time my dumb cat has figured out how to gorge on his food and get sick. I'm both frustrated and amazed by this cat's motivation for food and the lengths he will go to get it. I recommend the bowl if you have a normal cat and not some food driven moron like me.
I love this little bowl! The color is nice and the fish look cute when it's filled with food. My cat also seems to enjoy it.
My cat's had the 'scarf & barf' habit for 6 months & this bowl helps slow him down immensely. I should've gotten a non-skid bottom style but this is a good & affordable start.
