Slowing down your food gulping dog

Contributed by CP Volunteers

Does your Cairn gulp down his or her dinner in what seems like seconds? One of our CP volunteers says that even after more than a year, her boy still hasn't figured out that he's being fed regularly and no one will take it away from him. He swallows his food down whole, doesn't chew a thing, plows through it, and many times a short while after, it all comes back up.

In this video, a Col. Potter volunteer uses plates with raised edges which allow the food to spread out making the dog slow down while eating.

Another solution for slowing down a gulper is the Water Lily Drinking system which is pictured below.

You can find these at the CP Mall in the eclectic corner. Thanks for checking out all of the wonderful items in our Mall. You can buy items that you need and support the rescue efforts of Col. Potter at the same time!
