Slowing down pet rapid eating

Slow feed pet dish close up.

Huckleberry was having some trouble keeping his food down. His new cat doctor suggested he was eating too fast and recommended a slow feed pet dish to discourage rapid eating.

Could it be that Huckleberry is still feeling the effects of being moved from his former home?

We have a kitty that eats super fast. We feed him canned cat food. So our solution is to mash the food against the bottom of the bowl so all he can do is lick, lick, lick. Im guessing you feed dry food?

There are also lots of food puzzles out there for cats in which they either have to use their paws to fish food out or bat around a ball that then releases food. We've used both with our three cats. Not only does it slow down eating but also provides enrichment.
