One thing that I strive for when it comes to my pets is to keep them as healthy as I possibly can. This includes brushing teeth on a daily basis, making sure their food is the right balance of nutritional and delicious, and staying up to date on their vet visits. Lately though I’ve noticed that since our oldest has gotten up there in years that they’ve started to gain a little bit of extra weight and that it’s becoming increasingly hard to burn it off during our exercise times. I’ve tried everything from cutting back on treats to stepping up our exercise game but nothing worked as efficiently as I would have liked until I was given the opportunity to work with Petsafe to review their Healthy Pet Simply Feed Automatic Pet Feeder.
The Automatic Pet Feeder is a fantastic way to limit what your pet is getting at meal times. It works by using a conveyer belt to dispense food for accurate portion control and works best with dry kibble as well as semi-moist pet foods. The idea behind the Automatic Pet Feeder is that through portion control you can give your dog the health boost they need, whether they’re overweight or you’re just trying to get them on a stricter feeding schedule. The Healthy Pet Simply Feed Automatic Pet Feeder allows you to work with flexible portions from 1/8-4 cups up to 8 times a day.
Dispensing food slowly over a 15 minute period, the Automatic Pet Feeder helps reduce the risk of choking, bloat and vomiting, something that effects dogs more frequently than we realize. The included stainless steel bowl that comes with the Feeder is easy to clean and dishwasher safe so whether you’re washing by hand or loading it up in the dishwasher, you can rest assured knowing that the bowl is being cleaned safely and hygienically each time.
Other great features of the Automatic Feeder include:
- Slow Feed Mode dispenses meals over a 15 minute period.
- 2 preset dog/cat feeding options for quick setup.
- LCD screen with 5-button navigation for easy programming.
- Best for cats or medium dogs.
- Hopper holds up to 24 cups of dry food. Bowl holds 5 cups.
- BPA Free.
- Average Battery life of 1 year.
- and much more!
Say goodbye to worrying about your pets weight, early morning feedings and say hello to easy, convenient scheduled feedings with the Automatic Pet Feeder. It’s been a great way to get on a stricter feeding schedule as well as cut back on meals for our pets. We’ve been loving the convenience and easy of use!
Here is another great thing about the Automatic Pet Feeder: its perfect for Seniors.
It is a proven fact that having a pet helps keep people healthier and happier. It lowers blood pressure, combats loneliness and so much more. One of the drawbacks can be though, diminishing eyesight. We have a family member who is losing his eyesight due to macular degeneration and there are a lot of things that are very easy for him to miss.
No one would knowingly leave their pet station in such a state, and you really don’t have to worry about things like ants when food is not always setting out.
How about those families that are trying to teach their children responsibility by taking care of a pet? The Automatic Pet Feeder helps ensure that Fido doesn’t starve when some seven-year-old forgets to feed him.
What is really funny? This becomes like a Pavlov feeding experiment: when your pet hears food hit the bowl, she will come running!
