    Default How fast does your bully eat?

    Lola takes her time but Brodie eats so so fast. It is actually funny to watch because he looks like a maniac eating. I have never seen something like that. He also always acts like he is hungryall the time...is it because he eats to fast? He is done by the time Lola puts her face in the bowl to eat! I have pulled the bowl away from him but he gets so frantic. Also, last night before it was time to feed him he was licking the floor all the way around the island (which is where we feed them) and licking the darn garbage can. The bag says to feed him 3 - 4 cups (i think that is right if my memory is correct) and I feed him 1 1/2 cups twice a day. Is that not enough? I don't want to starve him but I also think he would eat all day.

    Ruggles inhales his food in less than 1 minute; Mack chews his food and he is usually done in about 4 minutes. Both boys, and the other 4 Bulldogs we have had in the past, are always hungry. We feed them twice a day.

    2bulliefamily: We are on the same wave-lenght today!! I posted nearly the same question 7 minutes before you did! You know what they say about "great minds"! I was also concerned about not giving them enough. I have been feeding the girls 1 1/4 cup for breakfast and 1 cup for dinner and everyone seemed to think that was more than enough. So if Brodie gets 1 1/2 cup twice a day, he can't be as starved as he acts.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Gracie eats with relish, and gets quite excited at mealtime. But she ALWAYS leaves a few pieces of food in her bowl. She gets a cup morning and evening. Her morning cup gets mixed with some yogurt currently because she was on antibiotics last week.

    @Gertie's Mom that was funny! I laughed out loud at work (whoops :bust. I am just glad I am not in that boat alone! Well hate it for Brodie...he is not getting anymore food. I gave him a little more tonight and he was still done before Lola and he sits and stares at her, like she is going to leave some behind.

    @2bulliefamily I was feeding Bear 1 cup 2x a day until he was about 7 months and the vet told me to up it by 1 cup so he gets 1 1/2 cups 2x a day. He inhales like Vegas, lmao.


    This was before i got the slow feeder YouTube - Bear the bulldog is hungry
    He'd go crazy eating his food it would go all over the floor. That is the only thing that slowed him down. Ok solution, throw the food all over the floor so he has to go hoover it up.

    Look for Omega Pet Portion Balls...they are great, you put them in the food dish on top of the food and it will slow them down.

    Belly inhales also and sometimes sounds like she's choking on it. When she see's me get out the cup for food, she is literally screaming at me to hurry up and she's only 10 weeks old. We keep the dog food in a plastic garbage can with a foot pedal to open the lid and I hear her out there every once in awhile pressing on the foot petal to try and get the lid to open... little stinker is too smart for her own good! Wish she'd be that smart about going outside to pee...

    Lastnight Jozi was about 1 1/2 hours
    behind schedule on getting fed. I put
    her bowl down and walked back into
    the kitchen. Was my glass out, fixed
    a coke. Looked down there is lilmiss
    Jozi standin there.

    I told her she better go eat. Then walked
    back into the dinning room where her bowl
    is. It was CLEAN!!! Like I had taken metal
    polish to it.

    So after reading all that the answer is
    FAST!!!
