5 month old eating food too fast

Charley, my 5 month old, has recently started to eat his food too fast. He eats so fast that he chokes and sometimes hack it up. Is there anything I can do to slow down his eating? I heard someone say the metal ball but wasn't sure. Thanks for your help.

There are bowls that you can get at any pet store that are meant to slow down eating. Mine does the same thing.

You can also try a Kong Wobbler. It helps give a little mental exercise at meal times, as well as slows them down.

This is what a friend uses for her dog. She doesn't even have a food dish, only uses the wobbler. As I posted in another tread, you could also use a plastic jug or bottle to put the food in and let them figure out how to get it out. Thats what I'm going to do with my new puppy... cheaper

For a cheap way, put the food down on a cookie sheet, the bigger the better. This forum gave us this idea and to be so simple, it worked so well! Coop would eat so fast he would choke, and sometimes throwup. Having to search all over the simple cookie sheet slowed him way down. We did this for a few months and then tried a bowl again and he ate much slower and no more problems. Think it gave him time to mentally grow up a bit and realize he didn't have to gobble up his food.
