Automatic Feeder 5-Day
This feeder works great
I'm able to mix my dog's medicine in with some food so he gets his required dose while I'm at work everyday and the freezer packs help keep the canned food cold.

Meets our needs
The directions are not well written. If you aren't feeding once a day for four days, then it can be a challenge to figure out. The compartments and timer do allow for multiple feedings in a 24 hr period, however, it's harder to figure out coordinating the compartment openings (rotation of the lid) with the timer. The feeder has five compartments but feeds only up to 4 timed feedings. You have to get the lid opening over the correct compartment and the timer set correctly which can be tricky.

Might be ok for dry food
I tried it to keep my cat from waking us up every morning at 4 am for breakfast. She eats canned food, but the ice packs only stay cold for about 6 hours so her food is a bit dried out before the compartment opens. It is also tricky to program and some of the tabs are har to slide to the fedding time.

Have returned product for refund.
Though this product is a good attempt, I have returned it because the time intervals between feedings must be 6 or more hours due to the thickness of the plastic arrows on the timer; I need feedings every 4 hrs or less. Also, pests (e.g. ants) can easily enter the feeder and contaminate whatever food is stored.
