I got my dog to eat slower by putting golf balls in a pie pan with his food.
He was forced to pick around the balls to get to the food.

hairballs if I forget to give her hairball meds. Then recently I started
giving everyone Royal Canine's Extreme Hairball dry as treats. Everyone loves
it and now even hairballs are rare. I usually give around 10 pieces to each
one and then stand guard to keep Harley from taking everyone else's treats.
Also, does your baby eat too fast? Casey also had a tendency to gulp her food
down. Started watching her eat and when she ate too fast I took it away from
her and gave it back in a few minutes. Ended up sitting by her when she ate
and giving her just a bite at a time. It did not take too long for her to
catch on to th fact that eating slower kept her from vomintting. Just a few
things you might try. Better than the 2 of you sleeping in the basement.
