These are commonly recommended and used by pet parents all over. However, there is some evidence to suggest that the typical ‘maze’ style feeders may actually cause more harm than good. This is because the nose is one of the most sensitive part of a dogs body since it is filled with nerve endings. Constant ‘poking’ while dogs attempt to eat from traditional slow feeders can sometimes cause food aversion, frustration (e.g. tipping the bowl) and lack of joy around meal time.
Instead, there is a better way to feed – via a platter which naturally encourages dogs to eat slower as well as maintain a more natural position while eating. Platters we carry are made in the USA from plant-based material, are dishwasher safe and work for kibble, canned and raw feeding!
