I can't really make a recommendation either way, but would have to say that if all factors are the same, I don't think that the height of the bowl is a major factor. I would be more interested in eliminating other factors in GDV cases, like weight, speed of eating, exercise, etc. I think the jury is out on this one, unfortunately.
Since you knew this, you should have offered this up as well instead of just picking out the info that proved what you wanted to say. Glickman himself says that a raised feeder may or may not contribute to bloating depending on other factors such as the health of the dog, exercise, breed, etc.Dog_Shrink wrote:I know there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the Glickman study.....

I can't guarantee there is no blockage...he may have eaten something without me knowing. I really don't know what to do at this point. Everything I am trying is not working.
Please note: The Brake-Fast Anti-Bloat Bowl will slide on the floor as your dog eats. As this does make noise, it also aids in the prevention of bloat as it takes longer to eat from a bowl that moves.

can I ask what led you to putting the bowl up in the first place?
...In the Saint world we read too often of a first time owner with a dead bloated dog and only afterwards do they even seem to know what went wrong...its very sad indeed
