Although feeding your dogs a healthy diet is important to overall health, there are many things other then dog food that are almost as equally important. The makers of the Dog Pause Bowl suggest the following:
-Feed your dog smaller portions, multiple times a day. Avoid the one time meal of a much larger portion.
-If your dog eats his food in less then 5 minutes, find a way to slow him down. Ensure he chews his food and doesn't inhale it, as fast eater could have problems such as gas, bloating, and vomiting.
-If your dog vomits with any frequency after feeding, speak to your vet. Try to find a way to slow down his eating.
-Adjust dinner portion size based on the quantity of treats you've provided your dog during the day. Treats have a lot of fat and calories and failure to adjust portion size can increase the risk of obesity.
-Always keep plenty of fresh water available for your dog.
-Wash your dog bowl frequently to avoid bacteria buildup, regardless of material.
