Ok. I need some help.  Izzie just wont slow down eating!  I have tried everything from hand feeding her (which i cant do that every day) to standing over her and telling her to slow down, and she even has a bowl that has sections.  Today I softened the food so it actually can go down instead of being hard and whole.  Is there anything other suggestions anyone may have?  She gets sick and throws up her food whole.  I just feel bad for her.  :(

I heard someone mention that you can use a cupcake pan...split the kibble up into the little cups and it slows them down. Good luck! Sidney is such a pokey eater, it takes him forever to eat his dinner.

We use these with dogs who need extra stimulation in their kennels. Half their meals go in the ball. They work very well.

Zoe (aka "The Queen") has the same problem and the solution that we use is a smooth, flat river rock that is a bit smaller than her dish. I put in her food and then place the rock on top. It has done the trick for her and she hasn't thrown up at all since we started using it. And she always figures out how to find every last piece of kibble under that rock. I just put it in the dishwasher once in a while when I do the other dog dishes and it comes out just fine. Might not be as fancy as a new dish, but you can't beat the price. P.S. my daughter uses the same trick with her 9 month old lab puppy to slow him down.

feed her from a go-slow bowl, they have pegs that stick up so the dog has to eat around the pegs to get to the kibble. You can also use an interactive toy like a tug-a-jug, omega treat ball, or linkables to make it harder for her to get food and force her to slow down.
