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.

Slow-Feed Bowls

I personally use a slow-feed bowl like this. It was personally gifted 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).

Stops Frenchie Farting!

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.

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.
