Dinner time is most pets’ favourite time of the day and the third day of Pet Tech Week on PetsRadar will introduce readers to a huge range of tech that makes mealtimes easier to manage.

For instance, the best smart pet bowls offer owners the ability to measure out portions, control the speed at which a pet eats and control which pets have access to any snacks or treats provided.

We’ve also had a thorough look at a range of the best automatic pet feeders, a piece of kit vital for owners who can’t always guarantee they'll be around when their pet wants to eat. Our list features some of the best models for both wet and dry food, and some which have more complex automation settings that can be tailored to specific needs.

Another way in which technology can help pet owners is online pet food subscriptions which are growing in both availability and popularity, especially with shops being less accessible of late. We’ve considered some of the pros and cons and found some popular choices.


Head over to Instagram today for some great pet tech prizes. Cat owners can grab themselves one of five PetSafe Dancing Dot Laser Toys (opens in new tab) while dog owners could wind one of five PetSafe Kibble Chase Dog Treat Toys (opens in new tab)
