timed pet feeding machine

timed pet feeding machine

Postby Ovechkin » 31 Aug 2014, 23:27

does anyone use one of these? sometimes i work long days and instead of running home during my lunch hour to feed my dog, i can just put a timer on a machine for the day. any recommendations would be great. i searched online for a few but im not sure how good they really are. some reviews say they are impossible to program so im hoping someone else uses one as well =X

Forget timed feeders. Use a smartphone remote controlled feeder. http://www.pintofeed.de

If you live in Taipei, go to Ying Yi Li store in Gongguan. They have several models. Aside from a remote or timed feeder, you should also get a water fountain. Fresh water is of outmost importance.

I do... but my cat milktea has learned that she can pry the trap door open and jingle her little paws inside the feeder to make it rain... so now it's not really timed pet feeding machine, more like a free all you can eat 24/7 pet buffet....

These machines have other problems, such as the pet becoming afraid of the noise it makes when it come son a nd then the pet won't eat. Another one more serious especially in Taiwan is the humidity factor spoiling the food, as the heat and humidity combine to facilitate the growth of mold -which is why always advisable to keep kibble in a hermetic container. Mold can seriously damage pets' liver and cause a painful death.

But as said, if no other choice is available...
