Top five benefits of microchip pet feeders.
5 Reasons to Choose a Microchip Pet Feeder
Microchip pet feeders are devices that sync with your pet’s microchip so that only one specific pet can access the food within the feeder. But looking beyond the basics of what a microchip pet feeder actually is, you might be wondering why you should consider a device like the SureFeed® Microchip Pet Feeder or SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect for your furry family members.
That’s why we put together this list of the top five benefits of microchip pet feeders.
1. Microchip Pet Feeders Help Keep Food Fresher, Longer.
Regardless of whether your pet eats wet or dry food, it’s important to ensure that their food is as fresh as possible. Fortunately, microchip pet feeders come with a sealed bowl that helps keep food fresher and free of flies, so you never have to worry about your pet’s food going bad or becoming contaminated.
2. Microchip Pet Feeders Stop Pets Stealing Food.
Pets stealing food is one of the most common challenges that can arise in multi-pet homes. This is often seen in homes with cats as they tend to graze food throughout the day, leaving it susceptible to other pets.
Although this may seem like a relatively harmless occurrence, stopping pets stealing food is essential, especially if one of your pets requires prescription pet food. But since microchip pet feeders only allow a specific pet to access the food, you can rest assured the right food is being consumed by the right pet.
In addition to putting a stop to pets stealing food, microchip pet feeders can also help alleviate stress at mealtimes in multi-pet homes.
3. Microchip Pet Feeders Can Help You Manage Weight.
Even if your pet doesn’t require prescription pet food, it’s still important to ensure you’re feeding your pet the right amount of food. That’s why certain feeders like the SureFeed® Microchip Pet Feeder Connect come with integrated scales so you can accurately weigh your pet’s food.
Not only does this capability ensure better portion control, but it can also help you save money by not using too much regular or prescription pet food at each mealtime. This is a stark contrast from some automatic feeders which will automatically dispense more food—even if leftover food remains.
4. Microchip Pet Feeders Are Silent & Subtle.
Unlike automatic feeders that are often clunky and loud when food dispenses, microchip pet feeders are unobtrusive and make very little noise when the lid opens for the right pet.
This benefit is especially important if you have a skittish or sensitive pet who might not feel comfortable eating from the automatic feeder due to the noise.
5. Microchip Pet Feeders Can Help You Notice Changes in Behavior.
Certain devices like the SureFeed® Microchip Pet Feeder Connect come with an app that automatically tracks how much, how often, and when your pet eats. This enables you to learn your pet’s normal feeding habits so that over time, you’ll be able to notice changes in their behavior and share that data with your veterinarian.
Regardless of whether you’re considering a microchip pet feeder to help stop your pets stealing food or to ensure the right pet is eating their prescription food, the common theme throughout all of these benefits is that microchip pet feeders are meant to provide peace of mind to not only you, but also your furry family members.
