Sanjeev Kumar Saini, Naval Deep Srivastava, Manish Nagar, Gaurav Singh, Kapil Yadav



Pets have been a very special part to many of our lives. We are very much emotionally attached to our pets be it dogs, cats or any other. We take utmost care when it comes to the breeding of our pets be it their diet, their clothing, their hygiene etc. The major problem arises in upbringing of pets when owners have to go out of station for some reason or the other. They either have to take their pets with them, leave a member of the family at home or leave their pet to some of their friends in the city. There arises a problem, because due to this, the pets are not well fed and thus result into their health problem. This paper is a review of several cases where pets have suffered, when their owners have gone out of station and their diet is ignored and thus not taken proper care of. This work provides advantage of getting an insight into the problem and as it progresses it provides a proposed solution to deal with such kind of problem with the help of electronic systems and thus take actual good care of the pets. The proposed solution takes the advantage of low cost and utmost simplicity.
