Is your flat-faced tail a messy eater? Or, maybe they have difficulty eating every last piece of kibble.
For our flat-faced cats, eating from a traditional cat bowl isn’t easy.
A flat-faced pet refers to any breed that has a pushed in snout. The correct term for flat-faced is actually brachycephalic. It describes any pet that has a bottom jaw longer than their upper jaw – making the muzzle appear flattened or squashed inward.
Cute as they may be, flat-faced pets generally have reduced airways (their nostrils and windpipe) which poses a particular problem during mealtime. With traditional bowls, your flat-faced pet has to smoosh their face inside. The walls of the bowl press hard up against the nose, making it difficult to breathe through their nose. As a result, your flat-faced tail eats faster, inhaling air through the mouth as they go. Inhaling air while eating can lead to pets suffering from choking, bloat, vomiting or even excessive wind.
Another problem is that flat-faced pets have a tendency to smoosh their face into their meal. While this is less of an issue with kibble, wet and raw foods can end up smeared all over the folds on your pets face.
In addition to this, traditional bowls are designed with a longer snout in mind. A pet with a longer snout can easily pick up pieces of kibble that rest where the side and bottom of the dog bowl meet. Flat-faced faced pets eat with their entire face in a scooping motion, arching their heads forward and upward as they eat, such are the joys of an underbite.
When a bowl is full of kibble, flat-faced pets can make do with a traditional bowl by eating from the center. As the food nears the end, however, eating becomes more of a struggle as the short snout on flat-faced pets can make it difficult to get to every last piece of kibble, often making a huge mess in the process.
