Healthy fur balls have healthy appetites and need regular feeding. If they don’t get their chunky, funky-flavored pellets on time due to your hectic lifestyle, they tend to get a ‘hAngry’. This intense hunger leads to carnivorous couch-chewing and other mischievous things that could end in pet insurance claims for serious injuries.

Hello, it’s 2018, there must surely be an easier way to serve the fur kids before their destructive inner beast is released? Overfilling their bowl is not the answer. It can lead to gorging and starving cycles as pooch or pussycat dig in. Get ahead of the game by managing your pet’s meals with your mobile phone and a super paw-some gadget called the SmartFeeder.

The Petnet app will keep your pooch and kitty happy and healthy. All you need to do is to keep this ‘third hand’ functional and full of power. Don’t forget to take your phone out of your pocket and to check it every hour or three.

  1. Change the settings on Petnet

Create a profile for your beloved four-legged friend and add her age, weight and level of activity. Select the right meal options and go fetch your pets’ favourite brand of pellets. Pour the pellets into the container and if one or two hop onto the floor, leave them there…your four-legged friend will appreciate the starter.

  1. Mess around and learn

Play around and make sure you understand the app before you leave your home. Read reviews on Petnet and have some fun with it.

  1. Feed the petsies

Time to feed the hungry lions! Just remember not to overfeed them. They will generally munch and lick the bowl clean even if they’re full, especially if you aren’t home. Control their portions and take care of their health.

Now your pets won’t have too much or too little on their plates and you won’t feel guilty for being a little late to get home.

Pet apetit!
