Slowing down your French Bulldog's Eating

As I'm sure you know, Frenchies can inhale food at a record pace. Sorry Frenchies, but unfortunately, this can cause farting and other stomach issues, so we've gotta slow down your eating. Learn what's so bad about eating fast and find the best slow feeder bowl to stop it.

Why is my Frenchie eating so fast?

Frenchies are probably some of the fastest eaters out there.

Some might even compare them to a vacuum. The speed at which they inhale food is quite impressive.

Unfortunately, all superpowers come with their weaknesses, and your Frenchies ability to make food disappear almost instantly can cause all kinds of stomach problems like gassiness, nausea, and upset stomach.

How nice would it be if we could just be like,

“Hey, Frenchie, you know you’d feel a lot better if you just slowed down a bit while eating”

But that probably won’t work. So what should we do?

There’s really no stopping a Frenchie that has its eyes set on a bowl of food…

So what can I do?

Sometimes we’ve just gotta do what we’ve gotta do.

And by that, I mean make it physically impossible for your Frenchie to wolf down their food by using a slow-feed bowl like this one on Amazon.

Slow-Feed Bowls

I personally use a slow-feed bowl called the Outward Hound Fun Feeder. It was personally gifted one to me by my veterinarian, and have heard it’s highly popular among dog owners of many different breeds (she had one for her Pitbull).

It comes in a few different colors and patterns. I use the teal one with the circular patterns… regardless which you choose, it’ll drastically slow their eating.

Key Features

  • Promote healthy digestion by slowing eating
  • Made with 100% food safe materials (PVC, BPA, and Phthalate FREE)
  • Non-Slip Base
  • Holds 3-4 cups of dry kibble

Slow-Feed Bowl In Action

As you can see in the video above, it took this pup **more than** **7x longer** to finish their food using a slow feeder bowl when compared to a traditional bowl.
