Many dogs eat too rapidly, which can cause bloat, discomfort and other digestive issues. Our idea is the Skid Stop Slow Feed Dog Bowl. Its unique design with large interior indentations work to slow eating, while a thermoplastic rubber base keeps the bowl from moving around.
Easy-to-clean, stain-resistant plastic and thermoplastic heavy-duty rubber rim make this the ideal bowl for your furry friend
I had high hopes for this. My youngest Lab (1yr) chokes and coughs about 50% of the time when eating. I feed 3x daily so that he doesn't have to eat a lot of food at once. I have tried spreading food out on the floor, different kibbles, using bigger bowls, smaller bowls. Unsurprisingly, this does not work either, and it slid across the room while he was eating from it. It didn't really slow him down, except at the very end of his portion (he'd already gulped 90% of the food, so I don't think it helped for him to take extra time to eat the last 10%.) Bottom line, save your money, don't buy this item, especially if you have a food-driven breed like a Lab. Also, the plastic is very soft and chewableI had high hopes for this.

Slow Feed Bowl
on Jul 28, 2018
I purchased this bowl because my puppy was so excited for meal time she was eating too quickly causing her to throw up sometimes afterwards! The vet recommended putting a small ball in her food bowl but Brinlee would often out-smart that idea; picking up the ball and dropping it on the floor to continue devouring her meal. This bowl was cheap, I love how it's skid-free, and we got it in a beautiful blue color! I still think Brinlee eats quickly but she hasn't gotten sick in awhile which means this bowl is helping! Thanks for keeping Brinlee in good health!
Chasing the bowl
on Aug 31, 2018
The intent of this purchase was to slow down the eating of my 4 month old puppy. She inhales the food as tho having not eaten for a week. The bowl design does help somewhat by causing her to work a bit for the food. I was disappointed in the skid mention, as the bowl is chased all over her area. The non skid feature does not work at all. I had to tape a section of rug liner to the bowl bottom, which she promptly chewed off. The rubber around the edge of the bowl bottom is not sufficient to keep the bowl from moving. Disappointed!
Wesson Can Not Be Stopped
on Aug 24, 2018
Hello, I bought this bowl for my new puppy Wesson. But he still eats alittle too fast. I am burping him like a baby. It is all too funny and he loves the attention when I pat his back and tummy to make him release some tummy air. Then he belches, looks at me like what was that and I say "you did it", then he wiggles out off my lap to play with his brother. The bowl will probably work when he gets older

This did the trick. One of my cats is a quick eater and when finished would then go and push his brother out of the way and eat his food. I saw Jackson Galaxy use them on an episode of his show and immediately went to Chewy.com and found them. I use them for both cats and...problem solved. It is a sturdy bowl and you can't beat the price, I highly recommend this bowl for your quick eater.
very light weight

I bought this for my dog when she was a puppy because she ate so fast she threw her food up. I fed her with this bowl twice, both times she began eating out of the bowl but it irritated her so much she flipped the bowl over and ate off the ground. She is a very smart dog so she figured out quickly how to flip the bowl. I just add water to her food now and she no longer throws up.

My dog eats super fast, like he INHALES his food. He is always burping and his stomach makes crazy noises after he eats. I saw this bowl and decided to try it out. It works! It slows him down and he hasn't had any crazy tummy issues all week since we got it in. He can slide it around the floor a bit but that doesn't bother me. It was a great price and worth the buy!
Excellent bowl. Sometimes skids a bit...

This bowl slows down my Coonhound/Beagle pups eating considerably! It is scary how fast she would gobble her food down before we got this. It Will slide around on hardwood floors. We have a small rubber back rug now that it does pretty good on. Mainly I think my dog wants to really stick her snout in there so the bowl doesn't stand a chance of staying still, lol!
Slows down on eating but!

I have a German shepherd and he would literally woof his food. I purchased this and it was delivered it definitely slows him down on eating to fast.
Problem is even though it's not supposed to slide, it does still slide all around on the floor.. That's frustrating to watch him try and eat while the bowl slides.
Other than that it works.
Slow bowl works. Long lasting.

These bowls do what they say. Slows gobblers (labs), bowls stay in place, and the plastic material has not broken down. I would recommend this product.
We have tried another companies fancy bright colored bowls with different configurations and the plastic material breaks down and chips off.
