Portable Slow Feeder by FelliPet

Maya really likes food, I mean really likes food, well to be truthful she is just plain greedy. If she had her way dinner would be a race and I’d be suprised if it lasted more than 60 seconds. Eating too fast can cause dogs various issues such as bloat and vomiting so ever since Maya has been a puppy she has eaten her meals out of a slow feeder bowl. Her current bowl really is adept at slowing down the speed at which she consumes her breakfast but lets be honest – it is not very stylish! So when I was sent a couple of portable slow feeders by Fellipet in return for an honest review I was intrigued. Could this mean that all those beautiful pottery dog bowls I regularly see and lust after on social media would be an option for us??

Fellipet portable feeders are an innovative solution for those of us with a sense of style that have canines that are ruled by their stomachs and gobble down food. They are a simple but brilliant idea and are basically a brightly coloured disc with a raised funky pattern made from food grade silicon. The inserts will fit any type of bowl and suction anchors them to the base. The product is dishwasher safe and they certainly worked as well as a regular slow feeder bowl.

We trialled the product on both a metal and a plastic bowl and it performed equally well in both types. Maya really liked the inserts and had her head stuck in her bowl long after a meal was finished!  I can see this product being useful for holidays and days out too when you might just want to take a light plastic bowl instead of your dogs regular bowl. The inserts are reasonably priced  and look pretty robust so will hopefully stand the test of time. I’m going online now to look at some beautiful dog bowls ……

Does your dog wolf down his/her food like Maya or are they more polite??

We have the same gobbling problem too and have even invested in a go-slow bowl. What I love about these is you can put them in any bowl, what a fab idea!!! Thanks for letting us know about them xxx

    They certainly slow Maya down a bit – but she’s still quite a speedy eater!! Thanks so much for reading Wendy. xxx

    Sometimes I do wonder if Maya actually tastes the food it is gone so quickly. I actually believe she only distinguishes one thing from another by smell!!! That’s spaniels/dogs I guess. Thanks so much for your comment Fran. xxx

These sound such a good way of slowing them down. Maya looks so pretty I can’t imagine her gobbling xx

Topsy REALLY likes food to. Some days she can sit by her bowl and stare at it for a long time. I think we really should try this. xx

    Haha, I do think Maya spends a disproportionate amount of time thinking about food too! Thanks so much for reading and commenting Kristin. xxx

Love to read your blog’s posts! Daisy loves food too (especially human food! 😜). When she eats her dry food, she has some weird habits! She never finishes off her portion of kibble at one standing. She often walks away from her bowl with some food in her mouth and then dropping it on the floor. She’s a bit messy! πŸ˜†

    Haha she sounds real character Chiara. Maya never leaves any food in her bowl but of course prefers human food when she can get it!!! Thanks so much for reading and commenting, I really appreciate it. xxx
