Hyper Pet Lickimat - Slow Feeder Dog Mat
Aw, poor dogs and cats. Getting Labeled Hyper Pets by the Lickimat slow feeder just because they're partial to a scarfing pace when it comes to eating their scrumptious kibble and tuna fish. I'd never force my cat Zanzibar to use a slow feeder mat. I'd be a hypocrite if I did, given what I do to bowls of smoky chipotle chili and chocolate ice cream doused in salted caramel sauce.
And pretty much anything else someone sets in front me that doesn't look like it might contain tofu or kale.
I will admit, though, my policy on pets wolfing down their food comes back to bite me in the ass when Zanzibar hacks back up the entirety of the ooey gooey treat I've just given him, and my wife tells me the person who rejected the Lickimat is the person on the hook for cleaning it up.
Hyper Pet's Lickimat, in addition to a slow feeder, is designed to promote calmer cat and dog behavior and relieve stress, particularly when they're home alone, or about to lose their minds during the 4th of July fireworks. Apparently, the licking action soothes them.
The textured surface of the Lickimat also helps freshen pet breath, and promote healthy teeth and gums by scraping away bacteria and juicing up new saliva.
Schmearing wet dog / cat food or treats into your pet's Lickimat will extend their eating time, keeping them engaged for 20 to 30 minutes. You can also freeze food spread onto the Lickimat to further extend eating time.
