Petnet: One of the First Smart Pet Feeders

Last Updated: May 17, 2021

Do you ever worry about overfeeding your pet? Or maybe you worry about underfeeding your pet. Some pets with medical conditions need regular meals to keep blood sugar or hormone levels stable, but it can be difficult to provide round-the-clock feedings with everything else you’re responsible for. Petnet saw this need and decided to create a product that would help solve all of these problems, making life easier for people and happier for pets. Petnet created one of the first smart pet feeders with multiple settings to allow for ease of use.


Introducing: The Petnet SmartFeeder

The Petnet SmartFeeder is an innovative product that connects to your phone and your smart home devices to your pet’s feeder, allowing you to have peace of mind and keep your pet’s feeding schedule where it should be. If your pet needs an extra feeding, the Petnet SmartFeeder can do that for you. Maybe you need an extra distraction while you give your pet medication, or while you’re taking care of other things in your house and need your pet to be distracted and safe.

Regardless of why you might need it, the ability to provide extra feedings, scheduled feedings, and adjustable meal amounts will help you manage your pet’s feeding schedule like a pro. To make you feel even more like a pet care pro, the Petnet SmartFeeder scores over 7,000 pet food recipes with a quality score based on ingredients and nutritional density. This allows you to see a quality rating for your pet’s food, helping you know if it’s time to look for a new food to meet their needs or not. To make this even easier, the Petnet SmartShop allows you to view these quality scores before you even purchase a pet food.

How Does it Work?

This feeder connects to your phone via an app and allows you to set up profile for your pet. This profile includes weight, age, activity level, and breed, and then matches you with suggested feeding amounts and schedules. If your pet needs a different feeding schedule than the suggested schedule, you have complete control over that and can manually set a feeding schedule that works for your pet and your home.

Since the Petnet SmartFeeder also connects to smart home devices, you can use more than your phone to control the feedings. It connects seamlessly to Alexa and Google Home, allowing you to make adjustments and monitor your pet’s feeding, even if you can’t find your phone. You also can connect the same feeder to multiple phones, meaning that you and other members of your household can make needed adjustments and get notifications when it’s time to refill the feeder, ensuring your pet never misses a meal.

The Petnet SmartFeeder is recommended for dogs and cats up to 60 pounds. The Petnet SmartFeeder has a battery backup that allows it to continue running for up to 7 hours without power.
