Yes. Put some large stones in her food bowl. That way, she'll have to navigate around the stones to eat, thus eating slower. Eating fast tends to make them swallow more air, causing gas.

If she is eating fast and choking then you may want to put a smaller bowl upside down in her regular bowl and sprinkle her kibble around the outside of the bowl. IF she is not choking then she may of just had to much competition when she was a pup or not enough food.This is a hard habit to break when it has been an issue from puppyhood.

I recently learned about this new bowl that makes it a lot harder to gulp. I've heard good things.
