PETLY Pet Feeder is another innovative product designed to feed your pet dry food in scheduled portions and times at the same time remaining eco-friendly to the environment and practically has full control over your cats bad habits in over eating in cats and dogs.
If you see the petly in the images you will notice who great it looks with its modern Apple iMac with its retractable tray and portable design that would fit in with almost any decor, but does this great looking pet feeder stack up to the rest?
Let’s find out
The first thing to take note is how the unit is powered, the manufacturer boasts that lasts for 6 months on batteries which likely get its eco-friendly title which would get around 6 – 12 and every six months to power and the Petly has a light up indicator which tells you when batteries need replacing.
Apart from its eco-friendliness, it has the ability schedule 4 feeding times a day with the option to dispense 5 to 50 grams per portion depending on your cat’s dietary needs. It should be noted that this feeder only takes dry food and the recommend food size is 3/5 and there has been reports of jamming with kibbles larger than the recommended size.
Features of the PETLY
- Eco Friendly
- Powered by batteries (four D Alkaline batteries)
- Lasts 6 months on full batteries
- 4 times a day meals
How the PETLY Works
The Petly reminds me of the old Apple iPods with the button in the middle and the dial around the button.
The programming is quite simple to get the hang of it while setting up a maximum of 4 feeding times for your dog or cat with a minimum of 30-minute intervals between each feeding time.
The only thing that should be noted is that the tray must be out before you set and forget, the retractable tray function makes it easy for portability but some users forget to lay out the tray.
The rest is easy to manage like this the LED that tells you when its time to fill up the hopper or when the battery needs to be changed.
The only real problem with this unit is the lack of back up of the previously scheduled information, so once the batteries are out you have to start from square one in getting the feeder back on line and this is probably not bad once in 6 months but it can be annoying to some users.
Pros and cons of the Petly Pet Food Feeder
It’s not the cheapest unit on the market but Its a great option for pet owners who need to feed their pets on a schedule, or pet owners who cannot be home throughout the day and want to make sure their pets don’t overeat/eat enough. Its simple design works with every home, and the dial eliminates confusion during setup.
The price point is not an ideal for most people and I can see this being a massive turn off.
