    to the site. there's something called a slow feeding bowl, it has an island in the middle of it. dogs generally as a rule don't chew their food. they bolt it, flick it with their tongue and inhale at the same time, which can lead to choking if done too fast.
    dog's do chew on toys and bones. and that's something these guys love

    maybe try giving her super small amounts and as she begins to inhale it, pick it up right when she starts to devour it and say slow down and then place it down again and just keep repeating it. My girl does that with her water and this is how I came up with a solution and now all I have to say is slow down from afar and she stops and starts over again drinking it normal.

    I left you a message! We use a slow feed ball. Works best for us and can use in any dish! Got ours fom Amazon..called The Pacer Ball.

    I have one of those! Bulldog who inhales. We have the slow feed bowl....actually we have 3. We are now trying the balls in the bowl. But...not just one, we have two!

    She slows down a bit, but most importantly.....her throwing up after each meal has drastically been reduced.

    I also use a slow feed bowl. The balls and "hump" ones don't work for me, Bella's food is mixed with raw and wet meds, so those just stick. I have to use the one with the divided sections.

    Other than a fast feed, is she doing well? is she digesting the food? any Poo issues?

    Always with me

    I don't like the slow feed bowls....I use 3 slow feed balls in Bertie's dish...2 large and 1 small....it really slows her down a lot!
