The Buster DogMaze is an ingenious new dog food bowl that allows for fast-eating dogs to have a healthier, slower meal. The Buster Dog Maze has gotten such positive reviews from dog owners that it's well on its way to solving the dilemma of how to handle dogs who wolf down their meal in less than ten seconds and end up with severe gas and bloating issues (amongst other more serious problems as well).

How Does the Buster DogMaze Work To Slow a Dog's Eating Time?

A dog's feeding time is significantly lengthened with this dog food bowl

The Buster Dog Maze bowl is made of food grade, hard-wearing plastic and has a swirling maze carved into the bowl. The dog owner puts the dog's regular amount of dog food (either wet or dry) in the maze crevices and, voila, that's all it takes to slow your dog's eating time from seconds to minutes. Dogs actually have to work to get their food, weaving their tongue in and out of all the grooves, trying to get every last bit. Not like a standard dog food bowl which is just theirs for the taking (or wolfing).

What Can Happen if a Dog Eats a Meal Too Fast?

Food Bloat is the #2 Killer of Dogs, After Cancer

For dogs, eating food too fast can be harmful and even deadly. When dogs eat a meal too quickly, they chew less and are more prone to choke. In addition, a dog is also swallowing a lot of air, which can lead to burping or passing gas or, something more serious (even fatal) called food bloat. Most food bloat situations in dogs is just uncomfortable, but when it actually twists the stomach (Gastric Dilatation Volvulus) that is serious cause for concern. When that happens, blood circulation to the stomach is decreased or even cut off entirely. This condition is extremely serious and can lead to death or non-reversible stomach complications. If you notice that your dog's stomach is suddenly much fatter after a meal it's a must that the dog be seen by a veterinarian. Some other symptoms are enlarged belly, trying (unsuccessfully) to vomit, walking while hunched over, and pacing back and forth. At that point, the doctor can determine if the dog has Gastric Dilatation Volvulus and provide treatment options.
