“Dogs who eat rapidly from raised food bowls seem to suffer an increased risk of bloat.”
You can buy a special bowl to slow fast eaters down, or, my favorite cost saving method, moisten food with plenty of water and cross two spoons in the bowl. It takes time to eat around the spoons.
Khuly states, “getting rid of that raised feeding stand can help….Bloat is within our capacity to prevent – to a large extent….Eliminate predisposing factors (sic) for bloat. Feed from the ground and slow down speedy eaters.”
