How Do Auto Pet Feeders Work?

How do you provide food for your cats and dogs? We all like to keep our pets well fed, but what type of feeder do you use? There is a wide variety of options available. I live in a small town where we don’t have a large selection, but I have discovered some great options for pet feeders online. As you read and look at various choices many of the units can be used by dogs or cats, just pick the right size for your pet.

A regular food bowl or tower feeder works well if your pet is allowed to eat whenever he is hungry. These work well, but you should consider whether you feed dry food, wet food, or both when you make your selection. You may decide on a combination of a bowl and a tower. Today you have a wide variety of units to choose from. Prices range from very low on up. This a partial list of the many varieties: plain bowls, bowls designed to keep bugs out, bowls for traveling, designer bowls, feeders with matching pet waterers, dry food towers and more. These are easy to use and clean.

The next type of feeders are automatic for feeding your pet on a schedule and controlling the portion size. You pick the schedule. The number of servings available depends on the unit selected. Several of these timed pet feeders can be used to serve your pet both dry and wet food. Prices range from not much more that a plain food dish to over one hundred dollars. There are several types to choose from depending on which features your are most interested in. These units usually require batteries. Most of these cat and dog feeders can be taken apart for easy cleaning.

The third type of pet feederĀ is to keep your dog entertained. This works well for treats or dry food. If your pet gets bored and into mischief, this type of product is designed to occupy more of his time, such as searching in various compartments for snacks. If your pet likes to hear your voice, other bowels allow you to record a message that plays whenever he gets close.

Now that you have had a brief tour of the many options for pet feeders you may want to look at the various options for your dogs and cats. Many units will work well for cats as well as dogs, especially the smaller size version of units. Keep your pet well fed and you can feel better about him getting his meals on time.
