Dog Bowl: Managing Canine Obesity
The most common nutritional disease for dogs has become obesity. Canine obesity has been linked to a pet’s lack of exercise, hormone issues and a slowing metabolism. Overwhelmingly however, dog obesity can be contributed to improper feeding techniques, specifically eating too fast. Eating too fast can not only lead to obesity and bloating but it can dramatically increase a dog’s chance of choking and developing vomiting issues.
Below are some helpful suggestions for encouraging your dog to eat slower.
Feeding a dog by hand is the surest way to slow down your dog’s eating speed. It is also however, the most time consuming and tedious. Hand feeding is best for smaller breeds of dogs that are less likely to get carried away when eating food from your fingers.
