PetSafe Eatwell 5 Meal Automatic Pet Feeder Review

Do you have a dog that is prone to overeating? I will freely admit, Reya has a problem: she loves food. If she sees or smells it, she eats it, especially if it’s a treat or even just a new flavor. Dog food, well, sometimes that is eaten a bit slower if she hadn’t had a very active day. Since I want to make sure Reya stays trim and healthy, I have been wanting to divide her meals out, making her eat at least two separate meals a day with little ‘snacks’ in-between meals. The problem was finding a way to make it happen, especially with my husband and my busy schedule. Luckily, we found the perfect solution – the PetSafe Eatwell 5 Meal Automatic Pet Feeder.

PetSafe Eatwell 5 Meal Automatic Pet Feeder: What is It?

Have you ever been so busy you forgot to feed your pets on time? Are you worried that your dog eats too quickly or too much? If you have ever been concerned about any of these situations we think you will love the PetSafe Eatwell 5 Meal Automatic Pet Feeder. This cool feeder gives you the freedom to leave your pet at home without worrying about missing meals, snacks, or just managing how much your pet can eat in one sitting. Just fill up one of the five one-cup portion sections and set the timer for when you want your pet to eat. At the scheduled meal time, the tray will rotate to give your pet a meal right on time every day! All the tray needs is 4-D cell batteries to operate. The tray itself is made of BPA-free plastic and is dishwasher safe, allowing pet parents to rest easy. When it comes to keeping our pets happy and safe, no one does it like PetSafe.

PetSafe Eatwell 5 Meal Automatic Pet Feeder: Overall

So far, we are impressed with this little unit. Having a breed that is prone to over-eating (and eating just about anything) it’s nice having an option available to us that allows us to give her food throughout the day. Rather than eating everything in one go, it moves around on its own based on a timer we set, allowing Reya to have food throughout the day. While she isn’t ‘thrilled’ about not being able to eat everything all at once, we know this is a great option to make sure our malamute doesn’t become a ‘lard-a-mute’. With the size of this feeder, it is perfect for dogs and cats alike, making it a great addition to any fur-friendly household!

    This would be so great for our dog who is starts begging for dinner at least an hour before his meal time.

    This is awesome,I am going away overnight for Thanksgiving and my cat will be home alone, so a friend has to come check on Oskar and make sure he has food.

    this is a good idea for people that can’t be home for all the day and they need to feed their pet at certain times. I would love to get something like this for my dog.

    We have a proverbial zoo at our house. With five Treeing Walker Coonhounds and three cats (all rescues), and one each dog and cat who like to overeat, this would really come in handy in helping me monitor just how much food they get.

    My Husband & I Travel at least Once a Month for 1-2 Weeks at a time. We have a Spoiled Siamese Cat & when he is Hungry..LOL, he lets us know everytime he is Hungry. This such a GREAT Idea & makes us feel comfortable when we go away. We know that he will have ALL the Food he needs!!!

    a really good idea, I have two dogs and one of them likes to eat a lot and usually steals food from the other one but I like how the petsafe eatwell controls every meal of the pet

    I love that you can easily put the food in the bowls and set the timer for when you want your dog to eat. I really like that if you are a busy person and on the go, you don’t need to worry about being home right on time to feed your pet. However, a concern would be that the batteries would die and your pet wouldn’t get their food. Plus, 4 d batteries is a lot! lol Other than that, the automatic pet feeder from petsafe sounds like a great product.

    My vet told me once upon a time to put out a big pan of food for the dog. “He’ll regulate himself”, he said. I tried this with my newest buddy MEAT, he almost killed himself trying to eat it all. He ate so much that he got tired of standing over it and just lied down to finish. I don’t know what made the vet think that but it was a crock. LOL

    This is great this is exactly what I am looking for. I have an older cat and I would like to manage his food which this safe pet feeder is perfect because he is a pig and I want to keep him healthy, I am afraid of him becoming diabetic. With the safe pet feeder this will allow him to eat in moderations.

    I would love this for my cat. Sometimes I go away overnight, and worry about her food. This would take care of that worry.

    This is really great!! Would love to try it for my cats, would I need more than one? We have 7 cats.

    This food dish looks very nice. I can see how it would save time on feedings by setting the timer and letting it run. I just have a cat but it would still be a nice feeder.

    This would be so great for our dogs, who tend to over eat and make me feel like I starve them throughout the day. This way, they would get small portions, throughout the day and not scarf down the whole bowl in one sitting and be hungry later on or beg for food at the dinner table. Our boxer Brutus is the biggest culprit, he eats his food, then goes and “steals our other dogs food. I LOVE this PetSafe feeder!

    This would be great for my dog, it would be very convenient to keep track of how much she is eating.

    i think this would look great in my house and would be a great addition for my animals
    they are so independent and would love to be able to get the food themselves without having to wait on us

    This is totally awesome ideal. I could really use this for my puppy she would love it.

    Our pets do not eat constantly, but my Mom has a dachshund that does and is overweight. This pet feeder is what she needs to control his diet.

    This would make me feel better about leaving my furkids for a few days, we have friends coming over to take care of them. THe idea it feeds them is wonderful never have to worry about them being hungry..

    This would be such a helpful product to have for every pet parent. I love that it is so easy to use and would be perfect to use when I go out of town.
