Dogs that eat to fast

Digestion starts in the mouth with the saliva.
Fast eating decreases the effect of saliva. There are new food dishes that
have columns build into them. You pour in the food and your dog has to eat
around the columns. It slows down the dog. You can also use big rocks, no
jagged edges, cleaned and disinfected. Get a large dish or baking pan and
add 3 rocks. Same principal, your dog will have to eat around it.

Kibble doesn’t really clean the teeth. The dental cookies will. Also
something to chew. A chew toy, one of our pork hide bones. The more saliva
produced from chewing the better the teeth and gums.
