A. I would first recommend for you to visit your regular veterinarian to rule out any sort of medical issue. If your dog eats too fast I would suggest to purchase a 'slow feeder' bowl. These bowls are designed with shapes inside of them to force the dog to pick up less kibble so they are forced to ingest it slower. I would also recommend that your dog be on a premuim dog food such as Blue Buffalo, Wellness, Natural Balance, or another food at the same equivalence. Ask your vet or pet store assosciate for help if needed finding these items.
