    Three weeks ago, I got a 16-month-old golden. Seth inhales his kibble. He gets 2-1/2 cups of kibble twice a day. I add a bit of water to his food and this seems to slow him down a tiny bit. I’ve used muffin pans and other homemade items to try and slow him down but they really didn’t work. I also use one of those treat dispensing balls…this one is an oldie, and I place about a half cup of kibble in it. I can’t remember the name of the ball, but Seth loves it! (although I don’t think the downstairs people appreciate it too much!) My main concern is bloat, and being a golden, he is developing a deep chest. Is this treat ball OK for him to use?

    I have a question regarding food bowls which are suppose to make a dog eat slower. Any suggestions as to which to buy? Do they really work?

    Go to Chewy.com. In their sesrch, type in slow feeding bowls. We use the ones that are titled “dog games”.

    We found this one to be very helpful for our beagle who inhales her food. We tried a couple of other bowls until we found this one and it definitely improved things. And with goldens having bigger snouts, it might help even more:
