What is the LickiMat Tuff Buddy?
Recommended for all sizes and breeds of dog, the LickiMat Tuff Buddy is a healthy and fun alternative to slow feed bowls. Extremely tough and chew resistant, it’s designed for teething puppies and dogs who love to chew anything. With a deep brush tip design, the mat allows you to spread wet dry and liquid treats like yoghurt, purees, gravy or liquid treats and raw dog food. Available in a variety of colours, the LickiMat is a boredom buster, it reduces anxiety and destructive behaviour. Additionally, the LickiMat can also serve as a dog bowl replacement for small and medium sized dog breeds.
What are the benefits of slow feeding?
The LickiMat Tuff Buddy is a fun pet interaction and is the perfect dog bowl replacement. In addition to reducing bloating and improving digestion, the LickiMat helps to promote slower eating, which leads to healthier eating. While your pet enjoys a favourite treat, the LickiMat promotes licking, which calms and soothes them. It comes in handy during stressful times such as vet visits, injections, bath time, nail clipping, injury recovery, as well as thunderstorms and fireworks.
The LickiMat's surface is designed to stimulate both dogs and cats to lick. The licking action produces saliva that protects your pet's teeth and gums, and can help aid digestion since saliva contains enzymes such as Amylase. The LickiMat Tuff Buddy scrapes food particles and bacteria from your pet's tongue, while the natural rubber surface is fantastic for promoting fresher breath.
Is the LickiMat Tuff Buddy suitable for soft and liquid treats?
The LickiMat will allow you to offer your pet a wide variety of healthy treats, such as yoghurt, peanut butter, purees and spreads. As your pet licks the treat out of the textured surface, your pet is rewarded with the treat although the process is significantly slowed down and their enjoyment is extended. Additionally, LickiMats are great for adding supplements and medications to treats. You can even freeze food and treats on the mat for slower and more enjoyable feeding.
