QPets Automatic Pet Dish 6 Meal LCD – Full Review

Automatic Pet Feeder 6 Meal

(3.5/5) This automatic pet dish 6 meal is a good choice in dish auto feeders because it has a locked lid protection system with dual snapping locks to protect the trays from those smart cats. With this locking system your cat won’t be able to open the lid.

Let’s see a general description of this product and then we will see its pros and cons:

DESCRIPTION

This automatic pet dish has microphone, speaker and a 6-seconds-recording personal message calling your cat to eat. This dish feeder comes with a low battery indicator to make sure your feeder won’t stop working.

You can program it to dispense a feeding schedule for your cat up to 6 meals per day (one meal to be served at present time).

Dimensions are 12.6 x 12.6 x 5 inches and it requires 4 C batteries.

 

PROS

  • It has locks for the food tray cover (dual snapping locks), so cats can’t pull the lid off easily.Thumb up
  • Good system as trays rotate revealing slots with food, so you don’t have to rotate the entire unit or have room around for your cat to access the food tray.
  • Good feeder if you need to feed your cat small amounts of food at a time (less than ¼ cup of food at a time) and several times a day, up to 6.
  • Not as loud as other dish devices.
  • Food slot dish comes out for easy cleaning.

 

CONS

  • Tricky to program in the beginning.Thumb down
  • The first slot cover could be opened by a smart cat.
  • Not high standard materials (according to customer reviews).
  • It has to be reset every time the cycle ends.
  • It does not retain programmed meals when turned off.
  • It does not have ice packs for moist food.

 

Tips to use the automatic pet dish:

  • Make sure to set the feeder up before the first scheduled feeding time. For example, if you feed your cat at 7 am, 3 pm and 10 pm and you want the feeder starts with the first feeding at 7 am, make sure to set it up before 7 am and press “start now” NOT “star tomorrow”.
  • Remember always push “start now” after every refilling (and before time 1).
  • Device just works with batteries.
  • Never put water on the slots.
  • If you want to use it for moist food, fill the removable tray and put it in the freezer the night before. You can feed 2 meals at the most with this system.

 

Conclusion

I recommend the Automatic Pet Dish 6 Meal LCD as a good option in dish feeders for the money.

√ I especially recommend this automatic pet dish for:

  • Feeding a docile cat (that won’t tip the feeder over)
  • Feeding your cat at regular intervals throughout the day.
  • Feeding a cat with diabetes.
  • Feeding a cat in a diet.

≈ You can use it with wet food if:

You fill the removable tray with canned food (maximum 2 meals) and put it in the freezer the night before. You can use this dish feeder within 8 hours with this system.

x This pet dish might not be suitable:

  • If your cat is too obsessed with food or too determined to break into this feeder.
  • If you are looking for a feeder that lasts for several years.
  • If your cat is allergic to plastic.
