[New Product] Put an end to overfeeding with the Eatwell Pet Feeder
Have you ever been forced to leave an oversized bowl of pet food filled because you wouldn’t be home in time to feed your dog or cat again later?
Those of us with busy schedules often have no other option. This may seem like the most logical and convenient way to handle the problem, but now there’s a better solution.
What’s the harm in leaving ‘more than enough’ food for your pet?
By keeping large food bowls filled at all times, we may feel that we’re helping to make sure our pets get the nutrition they need throughout the day. Unfortunately, many pets tend to overindulge, which often leads to weight gain, vomiting, and related health problems. It is estimated that 54% of cats and dogs in the United States are clinically overweight or obese1. This is mainly due to overfeeding. Providing the proper portion of food at the right time of day is critical to helping keep pets fit and healthy.
Weight gain isn’t the only hazard of keeping a large, open pet food bowl and “topping it off” every day. Other problems include:
- Attracting rodents, cockroaches, ants and other pests
- Contamination from dust, cleaning chemicals and mold spores in the air
- Food becomes stale, flavorless and loses its crunch
Discover the benefits of automatic pet feeders
Choosing a weight loss formula pet food and serving smaller, appropriately timed meals will help overweight pets slim down and stay healthy. But how can you keep a more frequent pet feeding schedule when your own schedule is already so busy?
Using a time-release pet food dispenser to provide the perfect amount of food at the right intervals is a great way to control your pet’s food intake. In fact, a timed, portion-controlled pet food dispenser can help solve many problems at once. Set it to serve breakfast at just the right time and your pet may allow you to sleep a little later on Saturday morning! When you’re enjoying an extended social event, you won’t have to worry that your pet has long since eaten everything in the bowl and is now scratching at the food bag. While at work, you can rest assured that your pet is enjoying lunch at the same time you are.
Another benefit of using timed pet food dispensers is the freedom to customize a meal schedule for your pet that will help break the “free-feeding” pattern that causes weight gain. Pets become accustomed to only eating at specific times during the day, so eating out of habit or boredom becomes a thing of the past. There are even more benefits to using automatic pet feeders, such as helping to protect your pet’s food from contaminants (i.e. dust, insects, etc.) and reducing the number of times per week that you have to refill the food bowl.
