What size pets will the Pet Feedster work with?

Our product was designed to accommodate both larger pets and smaller pets. To add more room for eating, the Pet Feedster has a concave face for large dogs.

How much food can be dispensed at one time?

How much food does the Pet Feedster hold?

It holds up to 10 pounds of food depending on the size of the kibble.

Will the Pet Feedster work with two pets?

This will depend on your pets, but the unit can feed two pets provided they eat at the same time with the same amounts. The Pet Feedster has a large bowl.

Will the unit sense or stop if food is left in the bowl?

At this time, the unit cannot detect that food is left in the bowl. The Pet Feedster was designed to feed the amount that you programmed to dispense. You should keep an eye on your pet’s eating habits and adjustment periodically  if you notice food being leftover after meal time.  You may want to consult a veterinarian in case your pet has health issues.

Will the Pet Feedster crush food?

The Pet Feedster’s Flex Feeder system ensures that kibble will not be crushed.

Can you feed your pet snacks?

Yes, you have the ability to feed at any time and at any amount. You can simply set the unit to start feeding once the unit has dispensed the amount you desire.  You can then stop the unit and it will return to its normal feeding program.

The Pet Feedster is 171/2” high, 13” wide, 18” from front to back including the food bowl.

How much does the Pet Feedster weigh?

The Pet Feedster weighs a little more than 8 pounds when empty. Overall weight will depend on how much food you have in the unit and if you have water added to the Ant Stop water tray. The food storage container can hold up to 10 lbs of pet food and the Ant Stop water tray can hold approx. 6 cups of water. Please note that this weight is different from the shipping weight of the Pet Feedster package.

How is the Pet Feedster Ant Proof?

Our patented Ant Stop water tray is removable and sits under the unit, which stops ants from getting into the storage container.

How often do I need to clean the Pet Feedster?

We recommend cleaning the parts that contact the food about every few weeks or sooner depending on the food used because oils and food particles can build up. We recommend cleaning the food bowl at the same frequency you would any other food bowl.

Functionality

Is the Pet Feedster hard to program?

As one of our top priorities, the Pet Feedster was designed to be user friendly and is very easy to program.

 

Sometimes the buttons need some warming up. Click the button 15-20 times to do so.

If it still doesn’t work, remove the timer cover (sticker) with a knife, and drop oil (like wd-40) on the black part of the button. Use a safety pin or paper clip to dab it on.

Remember that many of the programming instructions require that you press down (and keep pressing down) on the buttons for a certain about of time, not just clicking on the button once. The Pet Feedster will also exit out of programming mode after 15 seconds of inactivity, in which case you’ll start from the beginning of your step.

 

How many meals will the unit dispense per day?

The Pet Feedster will dispense up to 5 meals per day.
