Best Dog Slow Feeders in 2020



Hyper Pet Lickimat Slow Feeder Dog Mat & Boredom Buster (Perfect For Dog Food, Dog Treats, Yogurt, or Peanut Butter) [Fun Alternative to a Slow Feed Dog Bowl], Available in a Variety of Colors & Sizes Review:


We have a whippet that LOVES to lick. He licks pretty much anything, but prefers fabric, especially the couch. He will lick for hours. It is obvious how psychologically gratifying it is as his eyes close/roll back and he gets a peaceful air about him. He also has near-benign breath and great teeth for a needle-nose so we don't want to discourage the incessant slurping and wet-spot making, but man is it annoying! I saw the Lickimat as a mention in an older Instagram post and thought maybe it would work. Sure enough, Amazon to the rescue! They carried it- available and affordable.

it felt a little gimicky perhaps, and I was skeptical, but wow- what a simple, cost-effective means to at least limit the furniture assault. We just plop a little coconut oil on the Lickimat, rub it into the nubs juuust a little and Oswald goes into a first frantic lick frenzy, followed by a zen-like licking trance. We got the green nubby mat and the nubs hold whatever we slather on just long-enough to get him in a good psychological state and their tactile nature seems to sooth long after the goop is gone. The mat washes super-easily too (although we haven't tried peanut butter or canned meat- yak!). Tip- The coconut oil is perfect for us and our mat- clean, healthy, affordable and smells nice!

I love simple ideas like this- no moving pieces/parts, low-cost, durability, functionality, but I hate (not really) the people that conceive of and develop them- why can't I think of them and deliver them to market?!?!?!?

Thanks for the help Hyper Pet. The Lickimat works awesomely well for our problematic tongue dragger.



Outward Hound Fun Feeder Review:


Slept well only to find the morning a living hell. As usual, I've been separated from Brother's breakfast. That simple minded oaf takes so long to eat, I at once would take his meals. Now, I we take our meals separated. Behind a the bayhbe gahte, behinds it's bars, I take my nourishment...I plan. But today, my "caretakers", with their insipid smiles and baby talk, gave me breakfast in this horror of a food bowl. I looked at them turning "cute" up to 11 with eyes full of hurt, but their vapid looks and demeaning chatter told me that there would be no release from this new and unique torture. The bowl, my only joy in this "home", where I could wolf down my food - like the true wild animals my spirit longs to return too - gone. Replaced by this labyrinth of a dish from the Third Circle of Hell. My will is strong. I will show them, they can take my freedom, but they cannot take my gluttony. I will protest. I will not play their game. I will not eat. I will waste away to nothing. They will regret and relent.

Dog's Diary: Day 32
My hunger strike continues (while my captors are watching). I feign that I am too weak to eat and lie helpless beside my "phun bowl". They carelessly step over me, snickering about my demise.

Upsky Slow Feeder Dog Bowl Fun Feeder No Chocking Slow Feeder Bloat Stop Dog Cat Food Water Bowl with Funny Pattern Review:


I purchased this bowl because my cat recently started inhaling her food and immediately regurgitating it. Of course that was followed by her either trying to re-consume the food (ew) or scavenge like a fiend for food in the house. At first I thought the bowl was a little large for a cat, but I spread her food around and it was fine. Not only does this bowl prevent her from the fast-eating and puking, it is absolutely HILARIOUS to watch her use. She works at getting the food out with her paws, pulls out a kibble or two, about half the time drops the kibble onto the floor (her dish is on her cat tree), jumps down to eat the kibble, climbs back up, washes her paw, then starts the process over again. She went from taking >5 minutes to eat to 30 mins-an hour, sometimes leaving and coming back later. It's good exercise, good mental stimulation, and keeps her away from the dog's food long enough for him to finish eating (yes, this was an issue too - this cat is food OBSESSED). Best 6 bucks ever spent on my cat.



UPSKY Slow Feeder Small Dog Bowls Non Slip Puzzle Bowl Fun Feeder Interactive Bloat Stop Dog Bowl Anti-Choking Dog Bowl with Bright Macaroon … Review:


I bought this for our female Rat Terrier and male Jack Russell. I loved the @ design and really didn't think much about how difficult it might be to clean. We make our own dog food and it's made with raw meat, boiled eggs, rice and fish oil. The regular bowls we used before were a quick swish with a bleach solution and hot water. At first I thought it would be difficult but a baby bottle brush with the sponge on the end makes it a breeze. They both love there food and gobble it so fast that they would occasionally be unable to keep it down. After about a week of using this new bowl, they don't inhale their food anymore. It works great. They both take their time now. Another thing...one bowl came with rubber inserts for the non-slip feet and the other with stick on rubber feet. I wrote the seller and they were happy to send replacement feet and something extra for my trouble. Wonderful response and I cannot recommend this company highly enough.



Neater Pet Brands Slow Feed Bowl Stainless Steel - Standard Bowls Fit Elevated Feeders Review:


Bought this a couple weeks ago.
Reason: 14 year old Golden Retriever was eating too fast, upchucking his food. ( Ain't nobody got time for that, dog food is expensive, and so is vet care! )
He has had a lot of health issues, understandably, as he's super old and his eating issue was only getting worse.
He has ALWAYS been a swallower - you toss a piece of bread, a hunk of cheese, a slice of tomato, a treat, his joint supplement or anything his way, he swallows it whole, like he doesn't even know what his teeth are for.
So he had started swallowing mouthfuls of food lightning fast- then would walk over to me or my boyfriend, eyes watering, drooling, and then spew out all his food... Obviously, bad. And disgusting. Ew.
The vet determined it wasn't a medical issue, he was just doing this mess on his own - in my head I'm like HALT: We're not doin' this!

Watching him try to gulp giant bites of food from this bowl = HILARIOUS.
He was none too pleased - this bowl forced his geriatric ass to slow down - take smaller bites - and actually chew his food like a domesticated animal. He would try to take big bites, and when he couldn't, he would stare at the bowl or look at me, as I was laughing. Then he started eating around the edges. I would say it took him about 5-10 minutes to pick his bowl clean, and he's tweaked his time to about 4-9 minutes- compared to his usual 25 seconds. Big improvement, and I haven't had any issues from him since.
I would recommend this bowl for large dogs, fast eaters, geriatrics, gulpers, whole food swallowers and any other annoying, fast - eating, stomach hurting, gunna-toss-up-my-food problem eaters.
The bowl actually fits perfectly into your standard stainless steel bowl holder for large dogs, and it cleans easily. So far it's durable and withstands an old man knocking it around in the feeder.

Pictures feature the old fart himself, and his feeder, so you can see that the bowl fits.
I clean and wipe down his feeder once a week, but he's a slob so you'd never notice it had ever been clean.
Now, if this product could just add like, 10 more years to my old man's life, we'd be all set ;)
