New Research about the Simply Feed™ Pet Feeder

Every product we create is designed with pets and their parents in mind, so in 2014, we conducted an In-Home Usage Test (IHUT) for the Healthy Pet Simply Feed. Our testers gave us some great feedback.

Now pet parents can have peace of mind that their pet will be fed on time and with the correct portion no matter where they are by using our new Healthy Pet Simply Feed automatic feeder. The Healthy Pet Simply Feed has a sleek design to fit with any kitchen or home décor. It fits right in with your black or stainless steel appliances! This feeder is fully programmable and automatically feeds pets based on the portion and schedule set by the pet parent.

“Overall, very pleased with the product. I think it is well engineered and built. The flexibility of feeding and ensuring that my pet is fed when I am not home is great.” –Jeffrey S.

“I would recommend this to my friends for their pets. It has given me peace of mind when I have to work late hours that my dog does not have to wait for his meal”  –August L.

How Does It Work?

The Healthy Pet Simply Feed dispenses most dry and semi-moist foods with accurate portion control and timing. The conveyor pulls the food up to the top and dispenses it into the stainless steel food dish. Even the most stealthy or food-motivated pets can’t sneak an extra bite or two with the locking lid and pet-proofed dispenser.

“Now that I have used it, I love it!! It makes feeding my dog the correct amount of food, on time, so much easier. I also never have to wonder if someone else has fed her. And I know if for some reason I can't get home on time, she won't have to wait to eat.” –Michelle M.

“Love that I don't have to get up early in the morning to feed my dog. And I don't have to rush home to feed my dog. The feeder has a timer on it and I can program the times I want my dog fed and the quantity of food she is to get.” –Kathy H.

“Everyone in our house loves this product. It has helped create another level of peace since I don't have to remind anyone to feed the dog and the kids are free to do other chores. I also just have to keep repeating that I love that my dog is eating at consistent times and consistent portions. This is a real change for him, I'm sure and I can tell that he feels better with that predictability.” –Elizabeth P.

Fully Customizable

Pet parents can schedule up to 12 meal times per day and from 1/8 cup to 4 cups to fit your pet’s specific needs. This is perfect for pets who require smaller portions more frequently throughout the day, such as cats or overweight pets.

“Fully programmable schedule with up to 12 feeding times. Set it and forget it.” –Amanda C.

“PURRFECT for cat owners. Seriously. When you want to take a weekend trip? No worries, cat will be fed on time. Do you hate that your cat wakes you up at 7 even on the weekends? Feeder will fix that!!” –Amy G.

“It's great for putting cats on a schedule and not having your animals wake you up during the weekends when they are used to being fed at 5 am.” –Kristyen K.

Options for Fast Eaters, Slow Eaters, and Changing Schedules

There’s even a special feature for pets who seem to devour their food before you can say “go.” The Slow Feed option dispenses meals in 15-minute increments to help prevent bloat or vomiting with pets that often gulp or eat too fast.

Going on vacation with your pet for a few days? The Healthy Pet Simply Feed also has a Pause Feed feature that will temporarily stop the feeder from dispensing while still retaining the previously programmed feeding schedule allowing the pet parent to easily resume the feeding schedule when they return.

Maybe your dog is like mine and sometimes doesn’t eat his breakfast and wants a little extra at dinner since he’s more hungry than usual? No problem! You can simply press a button to activate the Immediate Feed option to dispense the next scheduled meal sooner than what was programmed. With the Healthy Pet Simply Feed, there’s really an option for every pet and every pet parent!

“This thing has been fantastic! We have a newborn, and Atlas was not always getting fed at his normal times. This has fixed the problem for us and taken one more thing out of our increasingly busy and hectic day. Also, we don’t have to plan our schedule around his feeding time (such as going out to dinner). I can’t say enough good things about this product.” –Jon C.

“I don't know how I have lived without one of the feeders. It has made it simple to feed and helps when I might have forgotten to feed.” –Denise B.
