Don't worry! This a common issue for both cats and dogs and this mat is an simple yet highly effective solution created in Australia.
The ridges and bumps embedded within this food mat create channels for food to sit between and turns meal times into a more interactive experience for your pet. Whilst they are playfully challenged by the texture of the mat, the time it takes for them to eat their food will surely be increased.
Slow feeding is so important for pets. As owners it is our job to ensure our pets have positive relationships with food, breaking the instinctive cycle which makes them treat every meal as if it might just be their last. By introducing slow feeding, you are essentially teaching pets that they have time to taste and savour their food as the mat is their very own and no one will invade that personal space. Though it can be fun to allow pets to embrace some of their natural instincts, other survival instincts are no longer necessary. As a loving pet owner you already know that the food supply for your pet will be plentiful, with a slow feeding mat you can show this to your pet too.
