Cheryl ShawI have to use a slow down bowl for my Ladybug. If I don't she "gobbles" her food then coughs it up, still dry and not chewed.

Kelli IronsWe adopted a 2 year old Boston girl who inhaled her food like she was starving. I wet her food with water, microwaved it 30 seconds, and then let it cool while the food absorbed the water. For some reason, it did help slow her down. It took a while for her to permanently adjust her eating style. Now, a few years later, she eats almost normally, without scarfing her food, whether I wet it or not. She still eats faster than my male but it is vast improvement. We never did use the slow feeder. BTW, Boomer & Rocko are adorable!!

BOSTON STRONG if I've ever seen it 👍PRECIOUS Lutz has made progress!!! Thirteen years old and all heart. In one weeks time Precious has gone from not being able to use her limbs at all for 18 hours, then she was able to walk extremely wobbly and today look at her go!!! Precious has a liver and gall bladder condition and at this age surgery is not the best option. So we are treating her with a specialty compound medication mixed just for her, a hepatic diet and a few other meds. We are making sure she is as comfortable and loved as she can be for as long as we have left with her. Her vetting and meds is well over $1000 now and any help for this little fighter would be such a relief for us. Thank you so much from us and sweet Precious❤️

Diana EldridgeDo you have to live in Florida to adopt one of your rescues? I have a 11 year old Boston now. She has to be the one and only. Just thinking ahead to the time she passes.

Rocko Saint needs a HALO!
Poor Rocko Saint is fighting an infection due to dental work (13 teeth removed :( ) that has caused his good eye significant trauma.Rocko, unfortunately, is now blind and bumping into things in the house. He really needs a halo to protect his eyes and face from injury. If anyone could please help this sweet old fellow we would be so grateful. We've found one and put it on his amazon wishlist, thank you so much. smile.amazon.com/gp/registry/ref=cm_reg_rd-upd?ie=UTF8&id=2GMGLK5XU545J&type=wishlist

Cheryl ShawIt makes me so angry that people don't take care of their pet's teeth. People look at me like I am crazy when I tell them I get my pet's teeth cleaned, just like I do my own.

Jacqui Lewis GressWe used it for our Boston boy but only for a couple of weeks. He was more careful without it. When he had it on he didn't care and would run like a crazy dog and the halo would have to be reshaped all of the time!
