Significantly slows the deadly rush
I give this product FIVE STARS. My dog uses the 'vacuum' method -- scooping food into his mouth and swallowing without chewing -- and this dish is a STRONG STEP FORWARD IN SAVING HIS LIFE. I thought this dish would madden and annoy my dog, but he doesn't seem frustrated; he still eats as quickly as he can, but now it takes him almost three times longer to get all the food out of the dish. This is much better for his battered digestive system. You don't have to lose your dog to agonizing bloat! This dish is an outstanding investment; it's half the price of others I've seen online. It is sturdy, non-slip on the bottom, and big/deep enough to get 2 or 3 good cups of food into it. (I don't mean measuring cups, either. I measure out my dogs' food with a 10 oz. coffee mug.) Additionally, if your dog, like my black Labrador, has "garbage gut" and eats sticks, debris and fallen (and unripe) fruit in your yard, I also recommend a good, roomy muzzle for times when you cannot directly supervise him/her.
ProsDOES WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO: slows down rushing, gulping dog!
