Dog Automatic Feeders
Just like humans, it’s not good for dogs to scarf down food. Not only will your dog not enjoy her food but it’s also not good for her digestion. Consider dog slow feeders for your furry friend. Slow feeders will require your dog to push the food out before she can eat it. This allows for healthy digestion, eliminating the risk of vomiting and gas.

There are also automatic feeders designed to activate when a pet with a microchip collar approaches and WiFi models that let you feed your pup remotely using an app. Slow dog feeders use ridges or patterns to slow down the pace of eating, making them a great option for dogs who get a little too excited during mealtime. Whether you need to feed your dog when you're away or slow down a canine who wolfs down food, you can find the perfect dog feeder to fit all your best friend's needs.
