Our pets are our family, and just like our human family members, it’s important that we watch the waistlines and weights of our furry friends. Often, it’s easy to tell if your cat or dog has gotten a bit ‘fluffy’ simply by noticing an increase in size.

But sometimes, due to differences in coat and the way they carry it, you may not know if your pet is eating the right amount of food. It’s important for humans to maintain a healthy weights, and it’s just as important for pets as well, though it may be more difficult to do. Our pets can have trouble deciding when enough food is enough, and often (much like humans) will eat whatever is there because it’s there. This can lead to obesity in pets, and obesity can lead to greater issues when it comes to their long-term health and welfare.

How Much Is That Kitty Eating?

Monitoring your pet’s intake isn’t important just to maintain a svelte figure; your pet’s feeding behavior tells a tremendous amount about their health. When there’s a loss of appetite or a change in your pet’s feeding habits and desires, this can be a first, subtle sign of an illness. Knowing your pet’s eating habits and precisely how much they are taking in regularly is a goldmine of information for a veterinarian who may need to look further into why their feeding habits are different.

Particularly when you have a multi-pet home, knowing how much of your furbabies is eating can ensure the best nutrition for them all. But it’s often difficult for pet parents to be on top of what pet is eating what food, and how much of it at that. Additionally, for pet parents whose pets are on specific restricted diets, managing your pet’s food intake and portion control can be a difficult process that hinders the bond that you and your pet have.

Because monitoring food intake of your pet only gets more important as your pet ages, it’s crucial to know what your pet is eating, and how much of it at that. That’s why we’re thrilled about the newly launched Microchip Pet Feeder Connect from Sure Petcare. It has all the benefits of the popular and best-selling SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder, but now allows app monitoring that offers you feeding updates, insights into feeding behavior, and ability to set accurate portion weights for each of your pets.

Microchip Pet Feeder Connect Takes The Guessing Out Of Mealtime

Yes, that’s right…the Microchip Pet Feeder Connect does all the monitoring for you. It’s next-generation technology that not only makes pet parents drool with how cool it is, but helps them take awesome care of their cats so they can live their best (nine) lives. It’s also great for small dogs.

The SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect works with most pet implanted microchips worldwide, as well as the Sure Petcare collar tags, and acts as an individual key for each animal in your home. It allows your pet’s meals to be customized and individual to each pet based on their microchip or collar tag, and all through an app you can access at your convenience. Pet parents can measure exact amounts of food for different pets and the Microchip Pet Feeder Connect’s LED light guide will tell you exactly when you’ve filled up the bowl to their portion size.

This is such a great resource for pet parents who have several kitties in their house, as the feeder will only open for the cat it’s intended to feed based on the recognition of the microchip. What’s cooler is that in doing so, it prevents other pets from going by and enjoying a nibble or two of a meal they’re not meant to eat, while allowing you to know exactly what each cat or small dog in your home has eaten every time the feeder opens.

Keeping Mealtimes Consistent and Connected

It does this with connection to the Sure Petcare app (via the Hub, which is sold separately), and pet parents are able to know not only when their pet eats, but exactly how much they eat and how much is left in the bowl, all with a few clicks. The app sends pet parents tremendously detailed information about their pet, which is particularly helpful to veterinarians who are investigating possible illnesses.

Jon Bowen is a veterinarian with the Royal Veterinary College and an animal behaviorist who loves the peace of mind the Microchip Pet Feeder Connect gives to parents. He says that though he’s a vet, he’s also a pet parent, and he knows that changes in a pet’s food intake are often early indicators of illness. The Microchip Pet Feeder Connect lets him know immediately when his pet may have some issues going on, and gives him a head start for investigating whether his cat has had an illness or infection.

Dr. Nick Hill is the founder and MD of Sure Petcare. He believes that the SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder doesn’t just give pet owners the peace of mind that comes with knowing their pets are eating as they should be, but it also makes their lives easier with one app. The app can connect to other Sure Petcare products and gives pet parents a picture of their pet’s overall health and well-being in one easy-to-read-screen. Sure Petcare plans to add even more products to their Sure Petcare Connected Pet Ecosystem in the near future, making it even easier to keep your pets healthy and happier for longer lives.
