“There’s Nothing Funny about Flatulence”

November 4, 2010 at 7:05 pm 2 comments

If I had a dollar for every time I said that in my household of six men…well, I’d be rich enough to hide away in a hotel for awhile. And while I may truly be the only one in my house who doesn’t “get” the joke, excess gas really can be an issue – particularly when it comes to the canine members of our family.

Gas, vomiting, and abdominal pain can be signs of gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) or canine bloat. GDV is the number two killer of dogs and a serious problem for pet owners who often underestimate the issue.

To help promote healthier eating habits, the EatBetter bowl incorporates a raised wishbone-shaped partition that provides easy access to food, but prevents dogs from gulping their meal too quickly. The bowl’s innovative design encourages dogs to eat slower, take smaller mouthfuls, chew more, and avoid overeating.

The DrinkBetter bowl uses a floating obstacle to control the flow of water, encouraging dogs to drink slower and take only as much as they need, without soaking their ears and muzzles or slopping water around the feeding area.

And because we think this issue is no laughing matter, we are offering a seriously great deal on our EatBetter and DrinkBetter Bowls.

Purchase a medium EatBetter Bowl and DrinkBetter Bowl from www.contech-inc.com before November 30th, 2010 and we will give you $10 off your purchase. Just enter coupon code: EBDBNOV as you check out!

    Hi, I love the blog. Found it when looking for the EatBetter after my vet brought it up and I then saw it in Canadian Living. I would like to buy the EatBetter for my dog Penny but I am not sure on the size. She eats about one cup of dry food at meal times. Should I buy the Small or Medium size? Also, will be any more offers coming up?!
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Vanessa,

    Thanks for the feedback and the interest in our EatBetter bowl. You, and Penny, would likely be best served with the medium size bowl, which holds approximately 500ml (2 cups). 1 cup of kibble will fit in nicely around the wishbone in the bowl.

    At present we don’t have any offers on but if you are on our eNewsletter list, you’ll be one of the first to find out when we do.
