Our Pets count among our most lovable companions in our household. Obesity can be a silent killer for our household dogs and cats.
In the US, obesity is the most common preventable disease in dogs. Approximately 25-30% of the general canine population is obese. And an additional 40-45% of dogs aged 5-11 years old weighing in higher than normal.

Keep tabs on how much your dog eats!
Using body weight as a guide, dogs are considered to be overweight when they weigh 10-20% above their ideal body weight. They are considered obese when they weigh 20% or more above their ideal body weight.
If your family Fido has been gaining a few pounds of late and is always rushing to the food bowl, you may want to explore a smart food bowl along with an associated wearable.
Recently, Petbiz introduced a new Healthkit targeted at solving this exact problem. The new platform aims at keeping your pets healthy and fit.
According to Petbiz,
“Our Wearable is like an Apple Watch for pets, it keeps track of how many calories they’ve burned to inform the meal plans, and built-in GPS keeps them safe outside.
The Petbiz Healthkit takes the guesswork out of mealtime by creating custom nutrition plans with a bowl that tells you how much to feed. “
The app calculates how much food your specific pet should eat of the favorite brand you’re feeding them.
It looks at the amount of protein, grain, and calories that are inside your preferred brand, and based on that and your pet gives a recommendation for how much they should eat.
The Smart Bowl for your Pet
The exact food amount is then sent over to the Smart Bowl automatically which then knows and tells you how much you should pour and displays the weight as you fill the bowl.
When you’ve filled in the suggested amount for your pet, the indicator light turns green, so you don’t have to remember exact measurements. When you’re over, it will turn red telling you you’re giving more than recommended.
The actual bowl is splash-proof, durable, and made of anti-bacterial material. You can remove the inner stainless bowl and safely clean it.
