As simple as pouring your dogs food into the bowl! The scale will memorise the weight of the food for perfect portion control. The bowl is elevated to avoid your dog spilling its food. The Anti-scoff design slows down speeds of eating, it prevents your dog from taking in excess air when it eats, reducing the risk of bloating and improving digestion. The digital scale displays current weight and memory weight in either grams or pounds. Weighs up to 2000 grams/4.4 pounds.
