How can I stop my dog from eating so fast?

Our question this week was:

What can we do to slow down our puppy from eating too fast. She doesn’t even chew her food and then when she is done she vomits it back up?

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote about a common problem with some dogs – they eat too fast and can vomit or regurgitate up their food.

You can help by….

If the problem is persistent – there are medical causes for dogs to regurgitate. You may want to read and talk to your vet about regurgitation and megaesophagus if it persists.

Best of luck!
