Some dogs tend to gobble their food down too fast which can cause many problems some of which could be fatal. If a dogs eats too much too fast without chewing the food enough a serious condition called gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV). The gulping of food results in excessive air, fluid and food filling the stomach, followed by swelling (dilatation) of the stomach cavity. As the stomach expands, it can twist around on its axis (volvulus), which makes it impossible for anything to pass through the stomach to the intestines. If this happens, your dog can go into shock and die quickly. One method of avoiding this problem is to use a special type of feeder that only releases a small amount of food at a time so when you are rushing to get to work or school you won’t have to worry about your dog eating too much at a time as the food would be released every 2 hours or however you set it and would dispense a small premeasured amount of food. This condition is more common in large breed dogs.
