When you are suspecting your absence for a long period, then you will have to refill it with more food so that the models having the large compartments can hold more food for your pet to feed. It has the feature to store big amounts of food. But it is not a good idea to leave for a few days depending upon this pet feeder.
The model won’t have the flexibility like some other advanced models to manage your pet for a couple of days in the absence of yours. The electronic timer associated with it allows you to set the times for each new meal. Instead on 4 feedings you can only program the machine for 4 feedings in one hour increments.
