CAUTION – THIS IS NOT AN INDESTRUCTIBLE CHEW TOY!

What is a Lick Mat?

A lick mat is a textured mat designed to slow your dog's eating and provide mental stimulation. The dog lick mat has raised bumps and ridges, making it difficult for your dog to consume food quickly. This forces your dog to lick slowly and carefully, which can help to prevent bloat and overeating. Dog lick mats can also provide your dog with enrichment and mental stimulation.

How to Use a Lick Mat

To use a lick mat, spread your dog's favourite food over the mat. You can use wet food, dry food, or even peanut butter. Once the food has been spread, give the mat to your dog and let them enjoy it. MAKE SURE they always have plenty of fresh drinking water.

Benefits of Using a Lick Mat

There are many benefits to using a lick mat for your dog. Here are a few of the most common benefits:

Slows down eating: Lick mats can help to slow down your dog's eating, which can help prevent bloat and overeating.
Provides mental stimulation: Licking is a natural behaviour for dogs, and lick mats can provide them with mental stimulation. This can help to reduce boredom and anxiety.
Can be used for training: Lick mats can be used to train your dog to sit, stay, or perform other commands.
Can be used to give medication: Lick mats can hide medication in food, making it easier to give your dog their medicine.

How Often Can I Give My Dog a Lick Mat?

There is no hard and fast rule for how often you can give your dog a lick mat. However, limiting it to a few times per week is generally recommended. This is because licking can cause your dog's mouth to become dry, and too much licking can also lead to dental problems.

What to Put on a Lick Mat

You can put a variety of things on a lick mat, including:

Wet food
Live paste \ pate
Peanut butter (choose dog-safe)
Yoghurt
Pumpkin puree
Cream cheese
Cottage cheese

When choosing what to put on a lick mat, avoiding foods high in sugar or fat is essential. You should also avoid choking foods, such as grapes or raisins.

Safety Tips

Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind when using a lick mat for your dog:

Always supervise your dog when they are using a lick mat.
Do not leave a lick mat unattended with your dog.
Choose a lick mat that is the right size for your dog.
Avoid using lick mats with sharp edges or small pieces that could be a choking hazard.


Conclusion

Lick mats are a great way to slow your dog's eating, provide mental stimulation, and even train them. They are versatile tools that can be used in a variety of ways. A lick mat is a great option to improve your dog's health and well-being.
