Benefits of Slow Feeders
Ever wanted an easy way to control your dog’s diet? Well, we have the solution for you. With more and more of us spending time indoors, controlling what we eat can be a tricky task and the same can be said about our four-legged friends.
As the sole provider of dietary routine, what and how we feed our canine companions really does affect how their weight and overall health is maintained. Obesity being on the rise in the doggy world, we are resorting to supplements and food changes to stop our dogs piling on the pounds. However, simple switches can really have a significant impact on your pooch’s diet and watch that weight better than ever before.
Slow feeders have been on the pet food market for years and have revolutionised how some of us feed our pets. With many households across the world feeding our pets from regular bowls, we often find our dogs wolfing down their wet or dry food within seconds and regularly asking for more. Slow feeders can provide stimulation for your pooch and turn dinner time into playtime. But most importantly they can give your pet time to digest their dinner, avoiding any tummy upsets from rushing their food.
Slow feeders act by slowly dispensing food or treats to reduce the speed at which your pet ingests food. This can be significantly beneficial for overweight pets or pets on a weight management plan as their ability to eat quickly is restricted meaning they can shed those unnecessary pounds keeping them fit and healthy.
