Does this work with only specific microchip brands or with all brands?
Answer by ChewyFeb 15, 2023
MiBowl (CP500) automatically detects your pet’s ISO or AVID 15-digit microchip.

Does this work with a pet's imbedded microchip or just the one that comes with it?
Answer by ChewyDec 28, 2022
This feeder has the ability to program your feeder with a pet's imbedded microchip or for non-microchipped pets using the electronic Pet Mate I.D. Discelectronic I.D. Disc collar tags. The feeder includes a single I.D. Disc collar tag however, additional tags may be purchased through the manufacturer. The feeder can be programmed for up to 10 pets.

Is it only battery powered or is there a plug too?

Worth the money!

I'm very pleasantly surprised that our rather skittish cat took to the MiBowl so quickly! It only took her about three days to start using it on her own, without any prompting. The MiBowl recognized her quickly (she has a 2014 Home Again chip) and, miraculously, the noise of the lid opening and closing doesn't freak her out. The MiBowl itself is compact, sturdy, and easy to move around. A very nifty feeder! My only (very slight) complaint is that the bowl's a bit deep, though Ireland's getting used to that. Best of all, Ireland can now feed herself during the night without us worrying that her sister will eat her food. Better sleep for the hoomans makes the MiBowl well worth the money.

Best Product Out There!

I bought two of these after one of my cats was put on a VERY expensive prescription diet for allergies. I wanted to keep the 7 yr old non-allergic cat from scarfing the expensive stuff and keep the 2 yr old allergic cat from eating anything other than their prescription food. This feeder was very easy to pair with their microchips and I trained them to use it in less than 24 hours by leaving a few treats in each one to entice them to try it - didn’t even need to use the product’s training mode. And I got a bonus result from these feeders…non-allergic cat was a lifelong “scarf and barf” eater, but now she has stopped altogether. I think she knows her feeder is secure and isn’t compelled to hurry and eat before the food disappears. And a note on battery life: I was worried that I would have to replace batteries often, but so far I am nearly 3 months in with the original batteries. Overall, I am thrilled with this product!

This works great!

It took my cat about 5 days to train her to feel comfortable to approach and eat from the bowl without getting scared by the lid. I was amazed at how it picked up her implanted microchip so easily. The lid movement is very quiet and not really noticable over the tv noise. Got this because my other cat can't have her food. He can not get into the food bowl. The bowl itself is surprisingly deep and can hold probably about 2 measuring cups of food. I am appreciative of the semi see through sides as she likes to make sure no one approaches her as she eats. We still use training mode, but will no doubt turn it off in a week or so.

Great New Feeder Option!

Full disclosure we received our MiBowl as part of the beta test. I am super happy with this product. The cats learned to use the bowls well and had no issues. I like that there is no bar across the top of the cats heads like on SureFeeds. Cats with E-collars could still navigate the food with no problem. And the bowls are higher off the ground which is better for digestion.

Excellent Product

We tried this for our kitty and it worked perfect. Easy pairing and user friendly. Our small dog likes to try to eat the cat food and it worked keeping her out of our cats meals. It took less than two times for our cat to get the hang of it and she was not scared or fearful at all at the open and closing. It also washes really clean. Highly recommend.

mixed feelings on this one

Be forewarned, this does NOT work with older microchips (11yrs old), and is iffy with a 1yr old’s. The only one it consistently recognizes is my 4 month old who has a home again chip. The tag is very large 1” diameter - ok for a dog but far too large for a 7lb cat. The bowl is deeper than Surefeed’s but narrower so it’s not possible to have both dry and canned as it is with Surefeed. Those 2 issues combined with the fact that it arrived with a broken lid = staying with Surefeed for me. The pluses are the deeper bowl, the lid operation is smoother, the unit could easily sit on a base for elevated feeding. The design itself is more logical vs surefeeds loop. If it recognized older chips I would likely prefer this to Surefeed but without a cat size tag or better chip recognition it’s a no go for me right now.

Great feeder!

This was the perfect thing for my two Yorkies. They each have to eat different subscription food and this keeps them out of each others bowls. They were easy to program and the pups figured out how to use them very quickly. They feel well built and look very cool.

MiBowl Microchip cat feeder

Still taking some time to adjust to feeder, new dish, closed in space, and sounds/motions from the feeder.
