Hoison Automatic Pet Feeder – Full Review

Hoison is an automatic pet feeder that features 10 functions to feed and interact with your pet.

With this unit, you can feed, talk and see your cat from anywhere on your SmartPhone so if you are working or traveling you can check on your cat anytime and video/voice interact with your pet.

Also, you can program your pet’s feeding schedule from your Smartphone and change it at any time if needed. By signing in your “Wetchat” account (Wetchat is a Chinese mobile App), you can feed your pet in real time by pushing the “Feed” button or take pictures of it.

The feeder registers and stores data in the Cloud service about how much food your cat ate over a week, showing you a report on your SmartPhone. Also, the unit suggests you a healthy feeding plan for your pet based on its eating behavior.

With a smart weigh sensor the unit registers how much food is left in the feeder with a 2g margin error. With this information, you know when it’s time to buy more food.

The portions increases for “cups” and each “cup” is equal to 30 gr. (approx. 1/4 US cup).

    A couple of questions – was this feeder able to keep cats out from breaking in and/or tipping it over? Would this be usable for 2 cats?

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi Randy, this feeder can feed two cats at the same time and even though it’s sturdy some cats may try to get extra kibble if moving the tray enough with their paws to get some kibble falling onto the tray. But not all cats do this, it’s just a matter of how obssesed with food your cat is. Hope that helps!

  2. Tanya says:


    How many litres or kg of dry food does this feeder hold please? I cant see the holding weight mentioned on any of the reviews? This would be the no.1 feature for most people.

    Hi I need to buy the Hoison smart feeder for my English bulldog yet I’m afraid that my dog will damage it ….so my question does it fit with dogs like bulldog or it fits only with cats and small dog

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi George, plastic feeders like the Hoison have a risk of being damaged by dogs with powerful teeth like yours. I don’t know if your dog will destroy the feeder or will just eat from it, pets are unpredictable like that. It’s a good idea training your dog to respect the unit at the outset with strong commandments. Another idea would be to get a flatter sturdy unit like the Feed & Go which is harder for a dog to tip over or chew on due to its design. Check a review of this unit here. I hope that helps!
