Just a quick post to list some reference articles by vets from Australia, UK and USA regarding slow feed bowls, and their benefits in preventing obesity, bloat, vomiting and other gastrointestinal disorders in cats and dogs.
Ref 1 - Harper Adams University, Shropshire, UK.
Ref 2 - Brunswick Central Vet Clinic, VIC, Australia. https://brunswickcentralvet.com.au/pet-library/inventive-ways-to-feed-your-dog
Ref 3 - Preventitive Vet, Portland, OR, USA.
Ref 4 - Vet Know How, Wiltshire, UK.
Ref 5 - Pet MD, Boston, MA, USA.
Ref 6 - Perth Cat Hospital, Perth, WA, Australia
The conclusion drawn in all the above articles is that the slow feeder bowl is effective in slowing down the rate of eating of your pet. While doing so it can also provide some mental stimulation during meal times.
Thankyou for reading,
Make every meal time fun & healthy for your pet
