Our lives have become so complicated, we work too many hours at our jobs each week, are certainly not home as much as we should be it just seemed to always be in such a hurry. Not only does it add a lot more stress in our daily life but our pets are affected too. Just putting out a bowl of food for them early in the morning as we had out the door to work, or we feed them really late after we’ve come home from a long day, certainly can, over time, cause them stomach disorders, weight gain or even diabetes. If only our way of life were simpler we’d be able to give them their food at more appropriate times through out the day. Although swapping the food bowl with a pet food dispenser is a great way to remedy this problem.
Whether you have a small, medium or even a large pet there is a automatic pet food dispenser made for them. The majority of electronic pet food dispensers are made up of a container for storage, a programmable digital clock and the feeding bowl. You only need to fill the dispenser with dry pet food (most units are not recommended for moist pet food), set the timer to feed your pet up to three times through out the day, that program the dispenser so it knows the amount of dried food that will be dispensed at every meal. The unit will do all the rest of the work. At it’s predetermined programmed time the dispenser will turn on and release the proper volume of dry pet food into the bowl.
Small timed pet food dispensers are made for pets who weigh just under ten pounds, and many dispensers can hold up to 5 pounds of dry food. Medium units are designed for pets weighing more than 10 pounds but just under 25. The food bins ordinarily hold up to as much as ten lbs of pet food. The large automatic timed pet food dispensers are manufactured for pets that weigh more than 25 pounds. The large dispensers have the capability of containing up to 20 pounds of dry dog food.
Most automated pet food dispensers are able to supply your pet smaller servings of food through out the day and can greatly assist those dogs which might be that have stomach eating disorders, diabetic, or maybe just getting older..
Once you’ve set the unit up, set the programmable timer as to what time of the day your pet will be fed, along with how much food is to be dispensed at each meal and have filled the food bin, at least one time on your day off monitor the dispenser to ensure it is performing as it should. When you’re assured it is working correctly it will feed your pet at the appropriate time every day of every week of every month, giving you peace of mind that you don’t have to run home to feed them.
Having a timed pet food dispenser could be a smart decision for the sake of your dog. Consuming the correct sized meal several times throughout the day is much better for them than having one large meal at either the start or end of each day.
