My 8-week-old springer spaniel ate a hole in it on the second night we used it. Would not buy it again
We bought this for our Greyhound to slow her down a bit while eating, and we love it. Keeps her from choking on her food! We were even able to bungee cord it to the old raised food stand we have so she doesn't have to bend down to eat.
I bought this to try to slow down my 4 month old goldendoodle's eating and he chewed the middle nub out of it the first time he used it.
Our puppy was gulping her food, so we'd thought we'd try this slow feeder. I think she's too young...her snout can't fit in the ridges. We're going to keep it until she gets bigger. I gave a 3 because it is all one piece...difficult to clean, and the water splashes all over. But we will try it again when she's older.
This slow feeder is great! Really happy with the results. My dog used to be done eating in about 1-2 minutes. Now it takes about 5 to 8 minutes for him to finish his meals! My only advice is to get this bowl if your dog is more on the gentle side. Also we take away the bowl every night before bed.
I left this with my dog unattended and she ripped it up. If you have a chewer get a sturdy one that will last. It worked great before the dog destroyed it.
#ReceivedFreeProduct I have had this silicone slow feeder dog bowl and water bowl combo for a few weeks now. I have found that it is a nice solution to the fast feeding of my dog. The maze shape of the feeding bowl allows my pup to slow down and has solved his digestive issues. However It is a bit of a pain to clean since it is an all in one. I have to take the entire mat to the sink to wash just the food bowl. I do wish that the food bowl was removable like the water bowl. Other than that, It is a great water and food bowl combo.
I think this bowl should not be recommended for cats. Our cat is too discouraged with it. We are going back to using ice cube trays for our cat.
#ReceivedFreeProduct Frisco’s Silicone Slow Feeder Mat has a great design. I love that the water bowl can easily be removed for filling, and allowing for cleaning of the feeding mat. Our smaller pup needed this type of feeding bowl. She was malnourished/starved as a puppy before we got her, so she has a tendency to scarf down food as fast as she can, and always ends up choking. The maze design of this bowl makes it so she has to slow down while eating. The feeding mat did frustrate her at first. She would often flick the food out with her foot onto the floor to eat it trying to get more. It did make her eat less in one mouthful though, so it was a win. Less choking! The silicone feeder cleans up easily too with just a cloth or washing it with water. It holds plenty of food. We found with her eating slower out of this bowl, she consumed less food as well.
My puppy ripped this the first day he was fed from it. It was ripped beyond use within a week.
