From everything that is on the internet, it isn't the raised bowl, but a lot of different factors. From what I read, the break down comes down to the following factors. 1. Dog Breed 2.Speed at which the dog eats 3. The type of Dog Food being used 4. The amount of water the Dog drinks after eating

5. How much and how hard is the exercise the Dog does right after eating 6. Then the Elevated Dish or not? As far as I can find, there was only 1 study done. How good was the study depends on the $ and who was backing the study. We have feed our Goldens from a raised platform without any series problems. We will keep on doing it. It also helps in keeping the mess down.

What research I've read is that it's not the raised bowl that causes bloat but the dogs ability to eat faster than before. I believe the raised bowl is better on large dogs' necks and if they're inhaling their food, get a sectioned bowl which will make it harder to eat fast.

My daughter uses a raise bowl. She just introduced this bowl about 6 months ago for her 16 year old Lab. He has some physical issues and this made it easier for him to get his food.

I have a Golden Retriever and use a small raised feeding bowl. She is feed dry kibble. She is very healthy- I am wondering if I am hurting her. I am doing this because I heard it prevents bloating. Am I wrong? Any advice is appreciated and welcomed>

Our dog is 37 inches at the shoulder and a raised bowl makes it easier for him to eat.

Interesting to know but I would like to know more. My dog's neck is like a giraffe's and she looks uncomfortable eating from the floor. Her legs are even longer so she has to splay them to reach. I've been feeding her from an elevated food bowl. Now I'm wondering if I should?

How can you promote Iams dog food, when its been proven that its one of the worst foods, graded at a F. If you can buy your toilet seat and your dog food at the same store, there is something seriously wrong...!!

Large dogs look uncomfortable feeding from floor level. It seems like raising the bowl would better work with gravity.
