Helo eats MUCH faster than that. He would choke before I got him a partition bowl which makes him eat slower and no more choking.

It's a bit fast but not crazy fast.

Well, Rocket eats faster than that. Of course, his is straight dry kibble. But I've never worried that he was eating too fast.

What a handsome, sweet boy Linc is and certainly an eager, hearty eater! lol While slowing him down a bit could be good, if he's not choking, taking in excess amounts of air, or vomitting, I wouldn't fret it. Frankly, I was impressed he was conscientious enough to keep his bowls perched precariously on the step - my gang'd have them capsized with contents strewn about the floor!

Seems like a pretty slow and deliberate eater to me. I think you worry way too much about way too many things. Sorry for being so blunt.

Haha he uses the back of the stair as leverage so he can inhale it faster. How can you tell if he is taking in to much air? He burps a tad after and farts but I dont think his farting is to much.

Yes, I worry about lots of things with my boy. There are reasons behind that (such as an anxiety disorder) that I am currently working on. Now that I have *some* money saved up for him in case of an emergency I will calm a bit. I was told one thing by a breeder and I have been following it for years so I was not sure if maybe there was a better way or easier one

Summer eats faster than that from a bowl - but she does put in a few good chews to each mouthful... I've never really worried about her. Now all her kibble meals are served in her Kong Wobbler tho, so it drags the meal out to a good 5-10 mins

Rose is not much of an eater. If she has only dry food it can take more than an hour to finish it.

Looks fine to me. Asia eats so fast she will choke but better if I mix water in like you do but she is still a scarfer.
