puppy eats too fast?

My puppy eats really fast?

its worrisome

we feed her raw chicken necks and boiled vegetables most nights.
But this morning while spending some quality time with her in the yard I discovered big chunks of vegetables and parts of the chicken necks are visible in her stool.

Is there anyway I can slow down her eating?

Finding stuff in the stool would do with digestion not eating to fast. Some vegetables are hard to digest so will basically go right through. Corn is one that even humans do not digest well.
How was the stool itself?

I often find pieces of carrots or peas in Nala's feces...I don't think it's anything to worry about. It was the same way with my old cocker Shadow. As long as the bowel movement is otherwise healthy, don't worry. JMO

Soft stool would be more of a concern then the piece of carrots to me.. How soft? Does it hold a shape? If it holds a shape you ought to be okay. If it is looser you may have adjust the diet or have to stool checked by a vet.
