|Getting dinner ready|
Hailey has always acted like she is always starving. We purchased the slow bowl because of it. When she went on her prozac we were warned that it was likely she would develop gluttony, as that was the most common side effect. What happened was she actually slowed down her eating. The first few weeks, she didn't even eat all her food. The vet couldn't believe it.
When we took her off her meds, her gluttony came back and was worse. It was like she needed to make up for all the times she ate slowly. She was eating so fast, even with her slow bowl that she was throwing up.
We have had to instituted the 2 courses at meal time. She gets her softy and half her hard food and then the rest of her hard food. It seems to be working, she hasn't been sick in weeks. I have almost not given them the second half several times.
I accidentally gave her the full amount Saturday night (I put Phod's scoop in her bowl), and I am happy to report she ate it slowly.
Now the next thing we are going to be taking on: Counter Surfing. So far it is Hailey 87 million, Lady 0, but we are working on having her sit on her bed when we are in the kitchen. Will keep you posted if we get a win!
