THIS IS FANASTIC
on 14 December 2013
I own a Jack Russell Terrier; I got him at nine months old from Battersea dogs home. They told me that he was found wandering the streets. I think this is the reason he scoffs his food (as he has been hungry in his life). He is now 5 years old and there have been a couple of incidents where he has regurgitated his food as he does not chew it. I asked the Vet to check out his teeth and there was nothing wrong with them and said that there’s not much I can do about it as he was a rescue dog and there was probably a period in his life where never knew where the next meal was coming from so he just scoffs.
I used to breed JRTs many years ago. The JRT I had before this one developed ‘stomach bloat’, which is a serious and life threatening condition. He was 17 years old at the time (very old for a dog), and I was told he would probably not survive it. He did get over it after a 2 week stay at the Vet. Sadly he was never quite the same after and passed away 2 weeks after I got him back home.
IF YOUR DOG BOLTS HIS FOOD AND ALSO NEVER CHEWS IT – and you want to avoid stomach bloat – (believe me it is the most upsetting thing and the dog is in extreme pain), then this is where this very intelligent dog feeder comes into its own.
I have to say I was a bit sceptical when ordering. I thought that he would tip it over and start throwing it about, but the design keeps it on the floor and its reasonably weighty and ergonomically designed, so it stays on the floor and does not dig in the dogs mouth whilst he is eating. (I ordered the small one and it was fine for my JRT). It works well with wet or dry food and my dog actually loves it.
As a bonus it gives him something to think about, and gives him a little bit of a challenge, and it definitely 100% stops him bolting his food.
A fantastic product a well deserved 5 stars
