Automatic Pet Feeders Can Help Your Pet's Health

The PetSafe Two Meal Feeder is a less expensive way to monitor your dog's eating habits.
It is important for dogs and cats to eat the proper amounts at set times of day. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 58.3 percent of cats and 52.5 percent of dogs are overweight and much of this is due to improper feeding regiments implemented by pet owners. With an automatic pet feeder, pet owners can utilize the programming options to ensure that their dogs and cats are getting exactly what they need.

Below is a chart with the recommended food rations for dogs of different sizes. This is a great reference tool to use when setting up your automatic dog feeder, but remember, you may want to consider other factors like age and exercise level. The cups in this table are based on an 8 ounce serving level. It is recommended by veterinarians that dogs be fed twice a day, so for the recommended portion, you will want to divide by two and serve as separate meals. Don't worry; this can easily be programmed into your automatic dog feeder.
