Treat your dog to slower, healthier meals
The EatBetter™ bowl encourages dogs to eat at a slower, healthier rate. Many dogs instinctively eat too fast; a habit that can contribute to digestive problems such as overeating, indigestion, vomiting and even GDV (gastric dilatation-volvulus) or “bloat” — a life-threatening condition requiring emergency treatment.
To help promote healthier eating habits, the EatBetter bowl incorporates a raised wishbone-shaped partition that provides easy access to food, but prevents dogs from gulping their meal too quickly. The bowl’s innovative design encourages dogs to eat slower, take smaller mouthfuls, chew more, and avoid overeating
How & Why It Works
Many dogs have an unhealthy habit of eating too fast. They love to lap up all the food in a swift, sweeping motion and gobble down or “inhale” their food like a vacuum cleaner. By doing this, they end up swallowing their food without much chewing, thus leading to indigestion.
The wishbone design in the centre of the bowl has three peaks and connecting ridges, which serve as an obstruction that prevents your dog from gulping or sweeping up the food.
Using the EatBetter™ bowl
Supervise your dog’s use of the EatBetter™ bowl until you are confident that your dog is comfortable using it.
Clean well after each use
After each use, rinse the bowl thoroughly with water and a mild soap solution, if necessary. Occasionally, give it a good scrub with a soft bristle brush, or wash in the top rack of your dishwasher.
Make the switch
If your dog has problems switching over from his existing bowl, try adding bits of his favourite treats into the food to encourage him to eat from the new bowl. Once your dog is used to eating from his new bowl, you can resume his normal diet and leave the treats out gradually.
