If you have a medium or large breed dog, a raised feeder is a must. Not only is it better for her digestion, but it helps prevent serious medical issues like bloat. Raised feeders are also better for your dog’s back and joints, as she will no longer have to bend over to reach her dish. Slow feeders are an ideal choice for any dog as well. They force your canine companion to work for her food, so she can’t gulp it down.
Most raised feeders are large and bulky. They are usually a one-piece unit that houses a food and water dish. Quite the opposite, most slow feeders are small and sit on the ground. Having two very necessary products be so completely different doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Outward Hound has seen the flaw in this logic, and they’ve created a product that gives dog owners and their pets the best of both worlds.
Meet the 3-in-1 Up Feeder. It is designed so dogs of all sizes can eat at three different heights. As you can see, all you have to do is fold the legs out and slide them to the desired height. It can sit on the floor, adjust to 6-inches high, or adjust to 10-inches high. The slow feeding ridges and valleys inside the bowl stop your dog from scarfing her food. She’ll have to lick and nudge the kibble out of the ridges in order to eat, meaning she’ll only be able to get a small mouthful every time.
This slow feeding raised bowl can hold up to 4 cups of dog food. It’s also equipped with a slip resistant base to keep it from moving around while your dog is trying to eat. The slow feeder insert is removable for easy cleaning, and the entire unit is top-rack dishwasher safe. The 3-in-1 Up Feeder measures 11” L X 11” W X 3.5” H. This design is patent pending.
The Up Feeder dog bowl is made with high-quality, food-safe ABS plastic. It is PVC-free, BPA-free and Phthalate-free. You won’t have to worry about harmful chemicals leaching into your pet’s food through this bowl. The bowl’s ability to collapse makes it ideal for traveling as well. You can easily fold in the legs and store the Up Feeder in a bag, pocket or on the side of a travel crate. It would be perfect for road trips, dog-friendly vacations or trips to visit friends and family.
