Who Should Buy This:

Anyone with a multi-pet household this is an ideal solution to prevent overeating by an individual pet or to make sure prescription food is only consumed by the pet for whom it has been prescribed. If you have small children this device will prevent their little hands playing with the pet food.
The lid only opens, revealing the food, when a registered pet approaches. When a pet that has not been programmed into the feeder, the lid stays firmly shut.
It’s not likely you will need this but the feeder can store up to an astonishing 32 pets and uses a simple one button programming method.
If you have cautious pets then there is a training mode for those pets to become accustomed to the feeder.
