Eats too fast, gets sick...

My 8 month old pup has started wolfing down his food in the morning only to vomit it all up within 5 minutes. There is no issue of "fighting" for food. His food is his and his only. I started cutting the morning feed into two smaller groups and he still does this. I have started to hand feed him to slow him down. Any ideas?

Use a slow feeder, this forces him to slow down. You can also put his food on the floor, or in a muffin tray, or toy dispenser.

The kong wobbler is good http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kong-PW1-Wob...5145517&sr=1-1



Do Ginger and Sampson eat in the same room, even if you dont let them eat out of each others bowls? I find mine all eat much faster when they can see/hear each other eating, so we separate into different rooms.

Yes they both eat same room about 8 ft apart. Ginger is a dainty nibbler though. She will eat slowly and takes her an hour to eat a meal.

I second the put it on a tray so he has to pick the kibble up rather than just dig his mouth in like a scoop!

I use muffin tins for Flirt. The dog toys and the cookie tray made her more frantic. But they work for some dogs. I spread her meal out across the 12 muffin tins and it slows her down and I didn't have to buy anything

you can achieve the same effect putting a baseball or medium sized rock in the bowl, it's just something they have to slow down and work around.

kv vet supply also sells them online or you could try dog.com

you can also add a lot of water, this is what I do for mabel, she isn't to fast but her kibble is small so she chokes a little on her excited mouthfuls.

When Parker started that, I just went to my cabinet and found a baking dish to use. it just has to big enough so the kibble spreads out so mouthfuls can't be grabbed.

If I've got someone who eats crazy I'll use a dog water bucket.. Takes alot longer. Just hang it on the crate door. Or poor the food in the bottom of the crate. If its a plastic crate it'll have a lip made in the front, works good.

We started Apollo on a big cookie tray and then to a X shaped slow feeder. Takes him much longer to eat, we just bought our Corgi one too.

I do not feed my dogs in crates. Only the puppy is crated and that is only when we leave or he needs some time out (he usually goes to sleep, showing he needs a time out).

Hello! For a time I used the kong wobbler. The medium size contains 2 cups of dry kibble. Which is the exact portion for one meal for my girl. It takes about 5 minutes for her to empty it.

However I started to soak her kibbles. I had bad experiences with bloating before and soaking the kibbles reduce the risk of bloating. Soaked kibbles do not work well with the Kong Wobbler. Now I put a ceramic mini dessert bowl in her dish on top of the kibbles. This leaves about 1 inch around the ceramic bowl for my dog to access her food. She still eat fast (30 seconds), but this is better than nothing in her dish (food gone in less than 5 seconds).

A rock will also work well but I am afraid the weight of the rock will puree the soaked kibbles. I tried plastic balls, but she just pick them off her dish. I also tried those bowls with cones sticking out from the inside of the bowl. It is better than nothing in the bowl but not by much (food gone in 6 seconds instead of 5...)

I am trying to feed him alone now...maybe that will help a bit. I also am going to give each suggestion a full time trial..not just a day one.. I know repeating helps. I never thought to add water, but I am afraid at this point, I will just have more liquid to clean up. Thank goodness I bought the best carpet cleaner I have ever owned lol. Love to Dobies.

Our boy has always gulped his food. Tried the anti-gulp bowls, but he seemed to be able to eat just as fast, so we then tried wetting his food. Worked well, but he started getting those nasty pimples (even with me washing his face after each meal,) so now we just spread his kibble on the floor. And I mean spread it out! I cover the entire kitchen floor with his food so that he has to find it all.

To each their own. Obviously some dogs will follow obedience commands to lay down, or are older or more relaxed personality. But after seeing a dog bloat and later succumb to it. I find it so important to crate and rest a dog after and before feeding. There are just a few things recommended to help avoid bloat so I find it important to do them all.

THANK YOU!!!! I had bought a hard rubber ball they couldn't destroy earlier this year and neither one likes it. So I dropped it in his bowl this morning and fed him....although he could nose it around the bowl it slowed him down a lot. I could even hear him chewing and saw him back away from the bowl several times to chew. I love this site and all the information I gain from the posts. Thanks again!

He is still young and learning commmands. I have to eat my own words here, but I DO crate him after eating so he doesn't eat his sisters food too. I just meant I don't want him to only eat IN a crate. Sorry for any misunderstanding. (I type faster than I can think lol)
