Pet owners are getting an assist from a new automatic pet feeder that comes with a handy Smartphone app.

Called the PetSafe Smart Feed automatic pet feeder, this new product is designed to give pet owners the ability to control portions and monitor meals in real-time.

Smart Feed is PetSafe’s first Wi-Fi enabled automatic pet feeder.

Utilizing an in-home wireless router, the feeder gives pet owners control over all aspects of feeding through the PetSafe Smart Feed app on an iPhone or Android smartphone, from anywhere.

“The average American checks their phone over 150 times per day,” said Sarah Beene, category manager for PetSafe Water and Feed products. “Whether staying late at the office, or relaxing at home, the Smart Feed uses modern smartphone technology to keep pet parents in control of their pet’s meals from the palm of their hand.”

The Smart Feed feeds on schedule as programmed if Wi-Fi connection is lost or feeder is offline; pet-proof dispenser keeps prying paws from sneaking food; child lock option disables manual feed button on feeder; optional 7-day battery backup.

Pet owners receive optional in-app notifications when a pet has been fed for added peace of mind.

The feeder dispenses food into a 5-cup, stainless steel, dishwasher-safe bowl; hopper holds 24 cups of dry or semi-moist food.

You can set up to 12 meals to feed for any pet’s schedule; Feed Now option allows pet owners to feed pets outside normal feeding times, from anywhere.

Meals can be dispensed from 1/8 cups to 4 cups to fit unique feeding needs; Slow Feed option allows the food to dispense slowly over a 15-minute period to help prevent bloating and vomiting.

The app logs the recent history of the feeder’s activities, including when meals were dispensed.

PetSafe said the feeder’s unique conveyor design dispenses most shapes and sizes of dry and semi-moist food and helps prevent jams.

Ideal for cats and small to medium dogs, the Smart Feed is priced at $199.99 and is available for purchase at and Amazon.
