Why waste your time doing something that can be automated? The Petnet SmartFeeder makes it easy to reliably feed your pet according to a given schedule, giving you full control on feeding times and the size of portions, the latter measured precisely every time. Its machine washable hopper holds up to 7 pounds of food, enough to last several days between fills for cats and small dogs. Petnet also features a stainless steel bowl, monitors food supply remaining at home to make sure you don’t forget to restock before it runs out, and features an internal backup battery to ensure your pet is fed should the power cut. Just keep in mind it’s not recommended for dogs over 50 pounds and only works with iOS devices.
