This bowl served the purpose. It was really too small for our new puppy 8 weeks old to utilize, so we hand fed instead. The bowl washes well, does not slip when used. I would recommend this size for smaller dogs or cats with small mouth and snout.
my little mutt is very smart and could get through lots of things, i was hoping it slowed her down, which it kinda did. but only for a certain amount of time. i wish the brand would’ve made more slow feeders for little dogs. but overall it did sorta helped. i just give her half and 20 minutes later i gave her the rest. just to slow her down
Great for a 7 pound Chihuahua who chokes from eating too quickly. It holds up to 1 cup of small kibble keeping all the food within the waves vs. piling it up, slowing her eating.
I ordered this for my Chi Pin who loves food and is overweight. This has been a huge help as she can easily eat form it, but it slows her down a lot, as she cannot grab mouthful of food. She eats slower so much that she tends to recognize she is full before she has finished eating (so she actually eats less than before). Highly recommended!!
The edges seem too angular for a busy tongue. Would prefer zigzag be wavy and 90 degree angles be rounded.
It is hard to find small slow-feeder bowls. This one works well for my 7-pound mini-poodle.
i love this, makes me slow down my eating and i dont get a belly ache or get fat from over eating
I ordered this bowl as a replacement for her last one as the older one only had a grey color and this was a nice pink. I read that it was non-skid and in photos I saw it looked like it could be fully out of the softer silicone like material for the entire bowl. Unfortunately, it is hard plastic mostly which I was trying to avoid. She also picks up the bowl halfway through and drops it upside down bc the plastic is slippery. This causes the food and crumbs to get everywhere. Then she proceeds to lick it all up then continue to lick more around the room for at least 15 min. I also had to pay almost 2x the cost as the shipping was almost the same price as the product. I will need to order a new bowl asap, elsewhere.
My Chihuahua is overweight. She's on a diet. She gets 1/4 cup in the morning and evening. I've tried putting things in her bowl to slow her down to no avail. I've also tried puzzle feeders/interactive toys. She's.... Not the brightest. Even with this bowl she stared at for a few minutes until the other Chihuahua was headed towards it, when she finally figured out oh, this is my bowl now. It's been so hard finding a slow feeder bowl small enough for her. All of the ones I've seen are for large breeds. But those ones would make it too easy for her to eat around since the gaps are so big. This is the perfect size for her meals. Room for more if needed, she clearly doesn't need more. She used to finish in around 30 seconds. Now it's over 2 minutes. Dinner took over 3! Best 6 bucks ever!
I wouldn’t say this bowl slowed my pups eating significantly nor any more than the previous slow feed design mat they were eating from, but it still takes longer than inhaling from a plain bowl. Hearing crunching on their food is a lot more pleasing than hearing retching later. I will look into other slow feed bowls by this company once my pups outgrow these.
