1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: titan doesnt chew her food.   Thu Jul 11, 2013 11:50 am

Normally when I get up in the morning I take Titan outside to go potty then bring her back in an feed her while I make some coffee or do something else. This morning about an hour after she got done eating we were playing outside and she started gagging like she was gonna throw up, she walked over into the grass and threw up. Almost none of her food was chewed up and she started eating it again. I took her back inside and fed her a little bit more so she didnt starve while we were at work.

Is this normal?

If not, how do i get her to start chewing her food?

you can get bowls that make the food spread out, it wont necessary make him chew her food but it will help him slow down and that may help him throwing it up after wards

Stryker does the same thing if he doesn't chew his food. Does she eat really fast? If so they make bowls with an object in the middle to make them slow down, or you can just place a really big rock in the middle of her bowl so she has to slow down and eat around it

I might just separate her food, right now I give her two 1/3 scoops in the morning lunch and after work. Maybe I can just give her 1 and then 30 minutes later give her another.

This is totally normal and using slow feed techniques may slow down the rate that they eat but generally does not get them the actually chew.

There are a couple similar threads on this topic already:

Swallowing treats

Not chewing his food

Its true, most dogs don't chew their food. I know people that have tried giving slightly larger kibble so they have to chew it instead of really tiny kibble. That might help.

If she is eating too much too quickly you can always spread out the food on the ground or crate. Or get one of those kong weeble wobble toys (especially great if she is in the crate) so she can eat the kibble slowly.

You don´t have to worry about that. Dogs do not chew their food they twine it.
