Hi

Anyone recommend an alternative plate you can actually get in the UK?

Thanks  :)

Lupime, I am a convert to feeding on a flat surface and cannot see me going back to a bowel. I have a toy breed with a beard and his face is much cleaner (raw diet) since changing over, also he seems happier eating from a flat surface as one can spread the food out. I haven't found anything similar to the Pet Platter in the UK and would be interested if anyone has. Flat based bowels with a small rim seem to be hard to find, however I did come across these flat based stoneware plates with a 20mm edge that look interesting.

Lupime, if you decide to go down the feeding on flat surface route, I would be interested to know if you find it beneficial.

interesting but not convinced, I tried my dog with a large plate yesterday to see if it made any difference no it did not. If I throw a handful of dog food on the floor he still eats it very fast. He ha :)s no competition but he is a real foody. :)
