What is the LickiMat Classic Buddy?
The LickiMat Classic Buddy is a healthy and fun alternative to a slow feed bowl recommended for cats and dogs. It helps calm and soothe your pet while they enjoy their favourite treat by releasing endorphins through the promotion of licking. With a deep and durable brush tip design, the mat is perfect for treats like peanut butter, mashed banana or raw food.
Available in a variety of colours, the LickiMat comes in a standard and a larger size for medium to large breeds or group feeding. It reduces anxiety, boredom and destructive behaviour.
What are the benefits of slow feeding?
The LickiMat encourages calm behaviour and slower feeding, which reduces bloating and improves digestion, resulting in healthier eating. The LickiMat promotes licking, which helps to calm and soothe your pet while they enjoy a favourite treat. It is especially useful when leaving the house during stressful situations such as vet visits, injections, bath time, nail clipping, injury recovery, and thunderstorms and fireworks.
LickiMat's surface is designed to stimulate licking in both dogs and cats, making it a fun pet interaction. The licking action produces saliva, which protects your pet's teeth and gums and can aid digestion because saliva contains enzymes like Amylase. The natural rubber surface not only scrapes undigested food particles and odour-causing bacteria from your pet's tongue, but it also helps keep their breath fresh.
Is the LickiMat Classic Buddy suitable for soft and liquid treats?
The LickiMat allows you to give your pet organic and healthy treats like yoghurt, peanut butter, purees, and spreads. Your pet is rewarded with the treat as they lick the treat out of the deep textured surface, though the process is significantly slowed and their enjoyment is extended. LickiMats are also ideal for incorporating supplements and medications into healthy pet treats.
