    raised feeder or not? 2 more opinions

    I found these two links to be interesting.
    http://yourolddog.com/raised-dog-bowls/
    http://www.greatdanelady.com/article...loat_study.htm

    When we first rescued my dane, her ribs and spine were showing. She inhaled food and was protective of it. My vet warned me about bloat. I feed smaller meals more frequently. In the beginning, 4 times a day, now only two times a day.

    I placed food bowls on the floor and in an elevated feeder. She will choose the elevated feeder every time. I did have to experiment with the height of the bowl.

    right or wrong? I don't know but I wonder if the dog food, the individual dog and stress are also factors to consider?

      I do not use a raised feeder... Never have. I really think stress is a major contributing factor in bloat in dogs. That being said I also think taking in a large amount of air in feeding/watering may also be a factor...

      I really do think anything has been proven one way or the other..

        My dogs usually remove their raw food from their bowls and eat it off the floor/mats. Mouse takes large pieces to his couch (it's always covered) and eats laying down.

        I feed them before I cook/eat and they rest during human food prep after they are done eating.
