LickiMat Slomo Combo Slow Feeder For Dogs Is A Healthy And Engaging Way To Feed Your Pet

Designed and recommended by vets, this slow feeding mat is designed to provide your dog with an enriching, tasty activity that helps to enhance their overall health and wellbeing

It is an engaging tool, that challenges and rewards your pet over time, by giving your pet small portions of food or treats, every time they engage with the mat.

Dogs need mental and physical stimulation to keep them happy, healthy and occupied. Dogs that are not stimulated, or rewarded for engaging in time-occupying behaviour, can begin to display mischievous and problem behaviours around the home. A licking mat is a way to engage your dog with an activity that both occupies and rewards

The mat makes eating an interactive activity, rather than just a meal

  • The texture of this mat allows the presentation of dry, wet, raw and paste, food and treats, on the same mat without creating a mess
  • The mat has 2 textures – pockets and raised nodules – divided into 4 sections across the mat
  • A sturdy frame with non-slip base surrounds the feeding surface, making the mat durable and chew resistant
  • Once your pet's favourite morsels are spread over the surface, they can pick up every bit until the mat is squeaky clean
  • The textured surface makes licking a challenge, which slows the process of the pet eating and prolongs their enjoyment of the special snack
  • The mat uses a small volume of tasty food or treats to provide a fun, lasting activity with fewer calories
  • You can even freeze the treats to make the fun last longer
  • The mat is compatible with any spreadable food or treats

It is excellent for use as a distraction during challenging experiences, or as a reward system during pet training – for example:

  • Use for teaching pets to be still for grooming, bathing, nail clips and vet examinations
  • Encourage your pet to be calm and settled during car travel
  • Rewarding your pet for calm activity around the home or just relaxing in their bed
  • Can provide a point of focus and rewards during fearful events

Using the mat can assist with oral health care

  • The licking action generates the production of saliva that can help maintain good oral health
  • The textured rubber surface assists in scraping food particles and bacteria off your pet’s tongue to promote a fresher breath

The mat can be used to slow down the feeding rate

  • The mat is fantastic for slowing down mealtime and to stop your dog gulping down their food in seconds – making it ideal for dogs who are prone to vomiting, bloating, or gagging from eating too fast
  • Helps to prevent overfeeding and can assist with managing hunger - the licking action makes food last much longer and a small volume of food can be placed on the mat, allowing you to provide smaller and more frequent feeds
  • Control of food portions and added energy required to access the food can assist with weight control

Lickimat Range

  • The mats are available in a variety of textures, each working differently with different types of foods and treats
  • Try them all to discover which surfaces work best for your pet or to provide your pet with a variety of activities

Construction

  • Made from BPA free, non-toxic food grade TPR (thermoplastic rubber) – contains no silicone
  • Flexible and easy to clean (soak and hand wash in warm, soapy water)
  • Freezer and dishwasher safe

Dimensions

  • 20cm x 20cm x 1 -1.5cm thick

Note

  • If this mat is used correctly, it is strong and long-lasting
  • It is not a chew toy – inspect for wear and take away from your pet if any pieces become loose or detached

Cleaning Instructions

  • Rinse and wash the mat once your dog has finished licking up all their food/treats – do not leave the mat with old/dried food and treats attached to the surface
  • Soak and hand wash in warm, soapy water or place in the dishwasher

Introducing your dog to LickiMat

 1.     Prepare the LickiMat with yummy food/treats your dog loves

 2.     Make it easy to lick the mat

  • Put a small circle of food in the middle of your LickiMat and press down with a spatula or spoon and then pile it up to about 1cm high so your dog will get a reward for minimal effort at the start
  • As your dog learns to lick you can widen the circle but stay away from the sides of the mat for 1-2 weeks to avoid the temptation of chewing the edges

 3.     Set your dog up in a comfortable environment

  • If you have more than 1 dog, they will require their own separate Lickimats and areas to lick
  • You may set your dog up outside or on a mat that is easily cleaned

 4.     Sit on the ground with your dog and place the LickiMat on the floor in front of them

  • This allows you to help your dog use the mat correctly, licking at it and not attempting to chew - keeping the food away from the edges make this easier
  • If your dog attempts to chew, use your stop command, remove the LickiMat and try again in 5-10 minutes
  • Repeat until your dog learns how to use the LickiMat correctly

5.     When your dog is trained, you can include a wider range of foods

  • You can make it more challenging by spreading the food out thinly over the LickiMat 
  • You can also use stickier foods so they have to work harder
  • Freezing the loaded LickiMat prior to use will also extend licking time

 6.     Pick up the mat once they have finished with it

  • If you are using a Classic Soother, Buddy or Playdate, simply wash it under water after each use 
  • The Tuff Series and Slomo are dishwasher safe due to their tough base

 7.     Experiment with your dog’s favourite foods, as well as foods of different textures and consistency

  • Check the ingredients on foods you use to make sure they are safe for your dog
  • If in doubt, ask your Vet
  • You must avoid using any food with Xylitol as it is harmful to dogs and cats

 8.     Have fun! 

  • Training your dog to lick will lead to better physical and emotional health
  • Used correctly, the LickiMat can become a training aid, calming activity, slow feeder, healthy distractor, breath freshener and provide your dog with fun and enrichment

Cleaning Instructions

  • It is important to care for your LickiMat to ensure it lasts a long time for your pet to enjoy
  • LickiMat is made from TPR (Thermoplastic Elastomer) which is more tear-resistant than other materials
  • TPR is also food safe and recyclable

Dishwasher

  • It is not ideal to place LickiMat in the dishwasher unless you can lay it perfectly flat on the rack because it may bend
  • The LickiMat TUFF range and SLOMO can be placed in the dishwasher because they have a rigid base and will not bend in the dishwasher

Handwash

  • It is recommended to hand wash the flexible LickiMats
  • You will find most of the food will get licked up anyway
  • To make cleaning easier, lay the mat in the sink and run warm water over it with a few drops of dishwashing liquid
  • Leave it to soak for about 15 minutes
  • After cleaning, rinse well, shake off and lie flat face up to dry

Yes, I recommend this product.

Such a great feeding toy. Puppy loves it and it slows her down, somewhat.
