How dogs eat food?

Whether you’ve ever seen a dog feed you’ve also marveled at how quickly it’s gulping the food down. You may also ask if it always consumes as much food as you place in front of it, no matter how tired a dog is.

Animal Manners

Dog owners may be worried with this behavior, but it does not cause the dog any issues. Parents chew their food and attempt to encourage their kids to feed gradually as absorption starts in the mouth for humans.

Our saliva combines with food and helps it to break down into the main components until it arrives into the stomach.

At the other side, the feeding of a dog does not continue before the food hits the gut, meaning that they do not need to find time to eat their dinners.

Easy Eaters

Some dogs actually eat too quickly as they needed to live in the days leading up to their domestication by consuming their food until some dog or scavenger ate it. The dogs’ genetic conditioning ensures they feed and tend to run. As a wild animal they had no privilege to sit about and feed at their pleasure.

Only their teeth aren’t supposed to savor their meal. Although most of the teeth in a human mouth are smooth and built to make chewing easy, most of the teeth in a dog’s mouth are sharp, and structured to encourage a dog to catch its food and consume it whole.

Hundreds of years of domestication haven’t too much improved the feeding patterns of most breeds. But if a dog is offered normal, nutritious meals on a daily basis, it can always gulp certain meals in a moment , making sure that no scavenger steals away his food.

Dog owners needn’t think about their dogs’ feeding behaviour. We humans eat slowly; thoroughly chew the food to savor its own flavor. For humans the digestive cycle starts in the mouth. Once it is chewed, the saliva that mixes with the food allows the food to be digested until it enters the gastric. Dog digestion doesn’t start before the food hits the stomach and so dogs don’t have to chew their food. For fact, the teeth of a dog aren’t necessarily meant for chewing. Unlike human teeth which are smooth to make chewing easier, canine teeth are sharp and specifically designed to grab the food or rip the meat to be swallowed whole. It was written in the Voyage of the Fox that in 42 seconds a herd of Eskimo dogs ate up 65 pounds of chopped seal meat. Are you aware of the removal of Eskimo dog incisors to keep the dogs from chewing the leash made of seal hide? The dogs will suck the food (meat) whole because of this.

A dog, no matter how well fed and good-natured it growls if you attempt to take any of the food it consumes away. Domesticated dogs evolved out of wolves. Wolves tend to scavenge in days gone by in order to live in the wild. Nowadays dogs don’t have to think about where their next meal will come from as their caring owners fill the doggie bowl at meal time. These days, dogs will dawdle, and slowly consume their food. Their parents had this privilege not. To live, wild dogs would feed quickly and stuff themselves full, because they wouldn’t know when the next meal would be. When food is scarce those dogs will go without food for days. There’s so much competition to live between animals. A larger, more aggressive animal will steal a prey from a dog. Dogs have to eat quickly so they can smell other animals and get wind from the food available. Wolves are hunted in packs but food is not fairly divided. The hierarchy of the pack decides the alpha dog should have a first go on the prey and the best part to have. Many dogs are unable to feed until the pack leader has had his fill. If it’s their time to feed, lower-ranking dogs tend to eat quickly. We consume the food or else we won’t get their fill. Hundreds of years of domestication didn’t “heal” the dog from eating habits of this nature. Food competition has been eliminated, dogs don’t need to hunt and scavenge for food, as food is routinely delivered. And the dog always has the desire to feed quickly and drink the entire meal.

Such voracious eaters can sometimes be off-food. A pet that doesn’t eat is one of dog owners’ most common issues nowadays. If the dog is sick, it’s not a matter of weight loss or lethargic non-eating. Only make sure there’s always water on hand. The dog would usually be his regular self after a day or two …… eat really quickly and chew the food as though some animal is trying to take away their food.

Introduction Have you ever seen your dog gulp his food down without even chewing it? Such action will also disturb the dog’s stomach, which can cause the dog to cough up entire pieces of food. The dog is still completely good though, since eating a whole meal without chewing once. It causes one to ask, why dogs are not chewing their food. Most pets, including the cats, exhibit this behavior. And the way dogs are designed is a fundamental explanation why they often eat this way. Dogs do not grasp the concept of savoring the food much like humans. More than a desire to taste food, their urges are more to fill their bellies. Behavior ‘s Origin There are many reasons dogs don’t chew their food. First, this form of action relies on their intuition or group mentality. You eat your food quickly in the wild like a dog and carry on for your own safety. Food scavenged for would also be divided among the pack, so you’d quickly catch the food that was yours and eat fast to prevent fights within the pack.

Another explanation for this swallowing activity relates to the dog’s physiology. A canine throat is designed to stretch and swallow entire pieces of food at once. That’s just something that people can’t do without coughing. Furthermore, unlike human flat teeth meant to savor and taste our food, dogs have pointed teeth that allow them to easily grasp and eat far larger pieces at once. A smart thing to find out is the surroundings of your dog, too. Of example, if you have many dogs, your dog may be afraid it’s going to have to compete of food and that’s going to make him eat at a much faster pace. Or, if you’re feeding your dog with a glass or metal bowl that causes the dogs tags to stick to it or noisy movement, it can scare your dog into eating faster! The bottom line of this swallowing whole food action is that this way dogs are made to swallow and many things can activate the instinct inside them. Eating too much, and not chewing, is not always the best thing for your dog. It may also cause stomach upset or some dogs can even choke. The best thing you can do is know what causes this activity, and try to fix it before it becomes a problem for your dog. Encouraging the action There are many things you can do to slow your dog down and help him not to swallow food whole. Next, make sure his eating atmosphere is calming and doesn’t feel like a place to eat aggressive. You may also help him slow down by moistening his food with water or switching to wet food, and chewing his food. Another option is to get bigger kibbles which will keep him from eating too many whole bits. The dog food bowl you are using can be the problem, too. Having a bigger bowl with a single layer of food inside is much easier.

A small bowl with several layers of food can cause your dog to eat more whole bits at a quicker pace. Sometimes, swaping the metal or glass bowl to a plastic bowl instead is a smart idea. This should minimize the noise. Not only that, it’s advised that the bowl be lifted off the ground to get it closer to the dog’s mouth. This will make your dog feel more comfortable about his food, and as if he doesn’t have to defend it as much. Many Options and Considerations When it comes to their food, bear in mind that dogs do have that protective instinct. Be sure if you have many pets, that they all have their own bowls that are spaced well apart to keep the environment comfortable. Moreover, if the dogs are destructive eaters, because of defensive instincts, it might be a good idea to feed them separately to cut back on their eating the food whole. Try also to make it a fun environment when feeding dogs, this will help greatly in digestion. Stressful eating conditions can lead to problems with digestion, such as volvulus or bloat with gastric dilation. Conclusion The way your dog eats is their normal instinct. Only by adjusting a few items like their food or plates, you can ease the stress and help them chew food more properly. But don’t think about the habit too much unless it turns into a digestive problem. After this, pets are children.
