If we eat to fast we can develop a stomach ache. If a cat eats too fast, he can also develop a stomach ache and may vomit or gag. Additionally, over time, digestive problems may occur, as well as weight gain. To prevent these problems for occuring, learn how to slow down your cat's eating.
Things You'll Need
- Smaller food bowls
Give your cat smaller portions of food to decrease his appetitite.
Use a smaller food dish; decreasing the amount of food your cat is fed.
Elevate your cat's food bowl after certain hours.
Feed your pets in separate locations. Sometimes cats will turn feeding time into a competition, thus causing them to eat too much too fast.
Consult your vet for help and advice if all else fails.
Tips & Warnings
- Always leave water down for your cat if you elevate their food bowl.
