With one diabetic cat and another overweight cat at home, this revolution of new feeders has come to us at the right time. We have bought two pro feeders and they are phenomenal.
For one, the portion feeder allows for customized feeding. This provides cats with the natural feeding rhythm of 6 times per day, which is normal for them in the wild, as they are grazers. Letting them chow down twice per day and starve the rest of the day is absolutely not ideal. This is how they gain weight and develop diseases.
Secondly, the weight of both of my cats has dropped immensely.
And, third, we reduced our diabetic cat's insulin from 8 units to 1 unit (and our vet says that our cat might come off the insulin completely).
We highly recommend these feeders.

The PortionPro Rx is a revolutionary way of feeding all pets whether in single or multi-pet households! Prior to the PortionProRx, my busy schedule as a veterinarian dictated feeding times of my cats. Sometimes, their meals were several hours late. I also saw my pets steal food from each other and had trouble sleeping through the night as they would wake me up for food. After the PortionProRx joined our household, my cats are fed every few hours (which is a more natural feeding routine that my schedule can’t accommodate), they are unable to steal each other’s food, and I no longer am woken up in the middle of the night with begging! I recommend all of my patients have a PortionProRx because of its ease of use and ability to improve family life and the bond you have with your pet. Single animal households can also benefit from this regulated, controlled feeding system because our human nature is to show our pet love by over feeding. Over feeding leads to obesity and related medical complications that I deal with on a regular basis in my office. I know you won’t regret purchasing this for your home - it will change your life and the life you lead with your pets!
I have tried every "automated" feeder that I've come across in the past few years and this feeder has surpassed my expectations in every way. I no longer worry about my pet's special feeding needs and the portion control is flawless. LOVE and would recommend to anyone.
I have two feeders, one for each cat. The cats both eat a prescription diet and the feeders allow me to strictly control their food intake and prevents stealing/overeating. Being able to feed small portions of food six times daily has also been a huge benefit! Less scarfing and barfing happening and much less yowling at 4 AM.
We got 2 feeders because my 19 year old cat needed a special diet from my other 2 younger cats. We left his feeder open for him without a collar and it closed when the younger cats with collars came around. And had the other closed and would open when they approached it. It worked very well. We could really see what they were eating and adjust accordingly. All the cats adapted quickly. The only downside is that they are on the loud side, and mine sit in a high traffic area, so they are always opening and closing.
