Ducky is a turbo-charged food guzzler. And that’s not good for her, or any dog for that matter. (Actually, it’s not good for us humans either!)
So, when Ducky’s digestive issues got worse instead of better, I reverted back to using the Kong Wobbler for “serving” her meals. The Wobbler works great…it slows Ducky’s eating to almost a snail’s pace. Unfortunately, she gets bored with it after a while. She has reached that bored stage this week.
This morning, I decided to give my little Tasmanian Devil a new challenge. Instead of using her Kong Wobbler, I put Ducky’s breakfast in sister Shadow’s slow-feed mini bowl from Kyjen*. I was pleasantly surprised to watch Ducky have to “work” to get her food! While it didn’t slow her down as much as the Wobbler does, it did a much better job than any other so-called slow-feed bowl I’ve tried in the past.
(* Kyjen’s regular slow-feed bowl is huge! It is way too big for my dishwasher, so when Kyjen sent me an email saying they were ready to market the mini-size version, I ordered three of them immediately. I put them to the test with Callie and Shadow the very day they arrived. While my big girls don’t eat quite as fast as Ducky, they do eat faster than I feel is healthy for them. These bowls have really slowed them both down a lot. I’m very pleased! And the minis fit nicely in my dishwasher’s top rack.)
Just so I’d have some documentation for myself, I decided to make a video of Ducky eating her breakfast out of Shadow’s bowl using YouTube’s Capture app. I think it came out pretty well. Don’t you? (By the way, Kyjen is not paying me for the mini review. In fact, they did not even ask me to review it. I did it on my own simply because I like the product and wanted to share it with y’all.)
Meanwhile, I know I’m a day late, but I’m joining the Barks and Bytes Blog Hop, hosted by my friends at Heart Like A Dog and 2 Brown Dawgs. Why not join us if you haven’t already?
