Top Pet Feeding related questions

The items you should provide are the keys to access your home and get to your pet and the food that your pet needs. This is especially important if they have special dietary restrictions. You can also provide the necessary feeding implements like food and water bowls or bottles. Some pet feeding specialists can provide the food for your pets in case it runs out, but do note that this can cost extra.

That depends on how quick your pet eats and if your service involves any other tasks like administering medication, along with cleaning and storing bowls or feeding implements. A typical feeding of a dog or cat can take at least half an hour to correctly measure, serve and feed, then clean their bowls and replenish their drinking water. If your service includes giving medication to your pets, expect the service to take at least an hour for each feeding.

Certainly! If you offer pet feeding services but find yourself short on labour, you can hire a Tasker to assist. You’ll discover that it can be easy to hire a Tasker for this and many other related services like pet grooming, pet boarding and cat sitting. You can even hire Taskers for jobs like cleaning appliance repair or house cleaning to get rid of fur or litter.

Yes, but you must hire another Tasker for this service. Pet feeding specialists are hired only to feed your pet, and while some may also offer to clean their feeding implements and administer their medication, these are the limits of their service. If you want a Tasker to make scheduled trips to your home and look after your cat, dog or other pet, you should hire a pet sitter.

Leaving a cat or other pet all alone is not an option. You can hire someone on Airtasker to look after your pet, such as a pet sitter or enlist a pet boarding service to place your cat in a temporary accommodation to get looked after. If you prefer, you can hire a pet feeding service or even hire a house sitter to stay in your home, care for your pets and look after your possessions until you return.

The pet sitting services and their providers that are listed on platforms like Airtasker can be deemed reliable. Pet service providers get authentic reviews and fair and accurate ratings from their former clients. If a pet sitting service doesn’t give good service, you can tell by their reviews and low ratings. We recommend you look at reviews from other clients and ask them about their experiences with potential pet sitters before you decide on which to hire.

What do pet feeding services include?

When you will be away from home and unable to care for your beloved pet, this service helps maintain your pet’s health and well-being. Pet feeding services include all the tasks necessary to ensure your pet is fed the right amount of food and on time. 


Taskers may also mix any medication your pet needs or administer their medicines as necessary. Your pet feeding specialist can send you updates and show that your pet is eating right at each meal. The pet feeding service can include cleaning and putting away feeding bowls or other feeding implements. 


Sticking to a feeding schedule

Even while you’re away, your pets are likely accustomed to eating at certain times of the day. This step can consist of measuring and giving the right amount and type of food, especially if your pet is on a restricted diet. The pet feeding specialist you hire takes this into account and goes to your home to feed them at the time you specify. They can do this as many times as needed, although some specialists may charge extra if the feeding schedule is more often. 


Measuring the food

Your pet feeding specialist weighs or measures the amount of food for each meal. They can give the amount you specify at each meal, especially if your pet is on a restricted diet. 


Pet feeding service

Once your hired specialist has measured and prepared the food, they serve these to your pet. They can give your pet their food and water bowls or hand-feed them with feeding bottles if necessary. Your hired specialist watches your pet or gives them time to finish their food, then takes away their feeding bowl. 


Giving pets medication 

If your pet needs medication, some feeding specialists can mix these in with their food or administer them, following the dosage and instructions you or your veterinarian provides. Some specialists include this in the service package or charge extra.  


Sending updates

To show that your instructions are followed, and your pet is fed correctly and given the right amount of food and water, your pet feeding specialist can send you updates. This can be done by sending photos, videos, real-time footage or any combination of these. With a smartphone or tablet, your specialist can send them via the free messaging app of your choice. They can send you updates at every feeding time.   


Cleaning the feeding bowls or other implements

Once your pet has finished eating, your pet feeding specialist can take away their bowls, bottles or other feeding implements and clean and dry them. Your hired specialist can take these implements and store them until your pet’s next feeding.
