Pampered Pals: DogPause Bowl

My greedy lil guy gobbles up his food like it's gonna disappear if he even looks away. I definitely keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn't choke or start one of his typical reverse sneezing attacks. Because some owners interpret a pup's enthusiasm for yums for hunger, it can cause pets to be overfed . . . and become overweight.

That's where the DogPause comes in. As the name implies, this pet food bowl has SlowZones and integrated portion control. Learn a bit more about the design of this bowl and


Traditional pet dishes are deep enough for pups to dive in headfirst and essentially suck up the food in a few moments. The DogPause ($17.95), on the other hand, divides the normal portion into four feeding zones – each one is 1/2 cup (max) in capacity and prevents a pooch from sticking his entire snout in, as he needs to use his mouth and tongue for each bite. Then, to get to the next zone, he needs to reposition himself, adding a bit more time to dinnertime. It may seem to be just a simple adjustment, but a slower eating dog has less risk of postmeal vomiting, gagging, bloat, and other icky side effects.

Hey, that looks like the Eat Better bowl I bookmarked. I think Eat Better is cuter, but the DogPause is cheaper.

B-Bop has been scarfing his food for a few days now (I think the extreme heat is messing with him) and today he barfed right after. No bueno.
