Yes, if it is regularly filled before it is empty, and the time of use allows everyone to ingest both slowly and sufficiently.

Yes, if the cage is large enough, with a base that allows the Pipolino® to roll.

If the litter does not allow it, the Pipolino® should be placed in a small container (width ≥ 20 cm; length ≥ 40 cm; height ≥ 5 cm) placed above the litter.

Play is only one of the effects of Pipolino®, to fight against boredom and sedentary lifestyle.

Pipolino® also allows slow ingestion, which avoids heartburn which is the cause of many problems: ingested foreign bodies, gnawed electrical wires, aggressiveness, gastritis, pancreatitis, colitis, enterotoxemia, …

All the effects of Pipolino® significantly increase the well-being, health and longevity of the animals that use it.

Bulimic cats eat very quickly to calm their gastralgia. Unfortunately, eating fast further increases gastric acidity and gastralgia, and therefore bulimia.

During the first weeks of use of Pipolino®, the cat eating more slowly, its gastralgia decreases as well as bulimia.

You can find all the information on the Pipolino®-M instructions.

With this link, you will find a grid to choose the Pipolino® that best suits your animal and the dimensions of the kibbles.

It seems more efficient to always leave the Pipolino® with a large quantity of kibble at the cat’s disposal, to fill it regularly before it is empty to avoid the anxiety of starvation. It is possible, if the cat is bulimic, that its consumption of croquettes is too important the first days; it is then regulated if the Pipolino® is set to the smallest flow.

Obesity is linked to the simultaneous existence of anxiety and an excess of energy intake.

It is therefore a priority to use foods with a very low energy density and to fight against anxiety; this is often due to gastric pain linked to very rapid ingestion, but also to osteo-articular pain linked to a sedentary lifestyle, and to depression, a stressor, resulting from boredom.

Pipolino® will gradually reduce all these anxiety factors, and thinning will be a consequence.

Previously, Pipolino® will have already made it possible to stop weight gain, which is the biggest serious risk factor (diabetes, hepatic insufficiency, etc.), excess weight especially favoring sedentary lifestyle and locomotor problems.

If you don’t notice any improvement, it’s because his anxiety has another cause (hormonal, environmental, etc.). Then talk to your veterinarian.

Place the Pipolino® in a container (≥ 40 x 25 x 8 cm) placed high, accessible only by the cat.

Reduce the flow to a minimum and, if this is not enough, place the Pipolino® in a container (for example a litter box) so that the cat will roll it.

Many adult cats are anxious, often because they have gastralgia, and some have pain when they move as a result of being too sedentary.

It is on these cats that Pipolino® will show the most benefits!

Just follow the directions for use and hold on for one or 2 days for hunger to be greater than inhibitions and for the cat to agree to rolling the Pipolino® (follow the advice above in “My cat does not use not Pipolino® “).

This is often the first impression, but it turns out to be inaccurate when we know that all kittens over 2 months and over a kilo know how to use Pipolino®.

Its large dimensions are designed so that it does not roll under furniture that is too low for a cat to pass, and to store food for several days or several cats.

The rubber bands of Pipolino® are normally sufficient to prevent it from making noise while driving.

Only the noise of the kibbles in the Pipolino® when it is rolling remains, but this low noise does not pass through the walls or the floors, and will be strongly attenuated in the apartment if the Pipolino® is supplemented with kibbles well before it is used. is empty.

He is an opportunistic cat, but that is enough for him to enjoy the advantages of Pipolino®: gentle physical activity, mental activity and slow ingestion.

However, if you want to avoid this for the sake of equal effort between your cats, set the flow to a single hole, or, if this is not enough, give your other cats a large portion of their ration for a few days. daily in a bowl; the thief will then be hungrier than the others and will agree to use the Pipolino®.

In nature, cats are not long-distance runners like dogs, and move very slowly.

The physical activity induced by Pipolino®, very gentle, therefore corresponds to the natural physical capacities of the cat, and is sufficient for the maintenance of its muscles and its joints, while allowing a slow ingestion for a light digestion.

Only kittens, very active to learn about predation, make the Pipolino® roll faster.

False!

Whatever his age, if his appetite is correct and he is not blind, he will know how to use his instinct and his intelligence to feed himself with Pipolino®.

See answer above ‘My cat does not use Pipolino®!‘.

A 24-hour diet and even a diet of several days is safe for a cat, except possibly in case of liver problems and if no food is offered.

Compliance with the proposed instructions for use, with the presence of kibble between the Pipolino® and a wall, avoids this risk.

Several possible reasons:

  • the bowl has not been removed;
  • the Pipolino® has been rolled in front of him and, either he is afraid of it, or he considers that it is not for him to touch it.

In both cases, the initiation to Pipolino® must be restarted:

  • place the Pipolino® at an angle against a wall at the location of the bowl that was removed;
  • place a few croquettes between the wall and the Pipolino®;
  • be patient, leaving the cat alone as long as possible;
  • if the croquettes have been consumed and the Pipolino® has remained in the same place, put some croquettes between the wall and the Pipolino® and reduce the angle between the wall and the Pipolino®;
  • repeat until the Pipolino® is found away from the wall.

No, because the cat only rolls the Pipolino® when it is hungry, so that it immediately consumes each kibble that comes out. As soon as he is full, he stops rolling the Pipolino®.

Some brands of kibble are dusty or greasy, and can therefore leave marks on the floor. In this case, use a container such as a litter box in which the cat will roll the Pipolino®.

Dog

Chien

You will find all the information in the Instructions for use for Pipolino L / XL

It is preferable, at least initially, to offer the same quantities as before.

After a few weeks of using Pipolino® at the lowest rate, the dog can achieve satiety by consuming less than before, but digesting better, which will allow him to maintain an ideal weight.

You can keep previous habits, even if the dog’s physiology allows him to eat only once a day.

If your dog is left alone for part of the day, it is advisable, to avoid separation anxiety, to give him a meal with Pipolino® when he is left alone.

In this case, put the Pipolino® in a rectangular or cylindrical container of sufficient size for the dog to roll the Pipolino® in it without taking it out:

  • rectangular container:
    • width ≥ length of Pipolino®
    • length ≥ 2 times the length of Pipolino®
    • container height ≥ 3/4 of the Pipolino® diameter
  • cylindrical container
    • diameter ≥ 1.5 times the length of the Pipolino
    • height ≥ 3/4 of the Pipolino diameter

After a few weeks you can offer the Pipolino® out of the tank again to see that it has settled down.

Yes, if its capacity is sufficient and after a test, except in the case of bulimic dog, which then considers food as a treatment for its stomach pains and can be aggressive towards its congeners. However, after a few weeks of using Pipolino®, he will no longer have stomach aches and will be willing to share Pipolino® with other dogs.

If the dog is destructive, you can opt for a Pipolino®-XL that he will not be able to take him in the mouth.

Better: educate him, from the initiation to Pipolino®, not to take it in the mouth (use a spray type “Pet-Corrector” which we direct the air jet towards the dog as soon as he takes the Pipolino® in the mouth; the pressurized expelled air emits ultrasounds which suggest the presence of a snake. A few sessions will usually suffice. Do not speak or give orders during these sessions, so that they are also effective in your absence).

Practice a few education sessions as in the previous case.

If this does not work, remove with cutting pliers a part of the bar which is used to open or close the cap (see below)

Only introduce Pipolino® to the dog when it is hungry.

He must be forbidden to take him in the face, raising his voice, and congratulate him when he rolls him to the ground.

A few training sessions are generally sufficient, the dog always seeking to satisfy his master.

The dog’s flair enables him to immediately know that there is food in the Pipolino®; if he is hungry, he immediately knows how to use his truffle to push the Pipolino®.

No, if you only present Pipolino® to your dog when he is hungry: he will immediately consume each kibble that comes out of the apartment! At the end of the meal, if he leaves any kibble on the ground, decrease and adjust the following rations so that all the contents of the Pipolino® are consumed.

Some brands of kibble are dusty or greasy, and can therefore leave marks on the floor. In this case, use a container such as a litter box in which the dog will roll the Pipolino®.

This is often the first impression, but it turns out to be incorrect when we know that all puppies over 2 months and over 2 kg know how to use Pipolino®-L.

By setting the Pipolino® for a consumption of concentrates of approximately 200 grams / hour per 100 kg of weight, the ideal physiological digestion is obtained.

Yes, provided that their dietary needs are the same, and by placing the Pipolino® in a container that is large enough and accessible to all.

Take several explicit photos and send them to our after-sales service, indicating your precise address.

He thus shows his anxiety linked to gastric hyperacidity because the food does not come out quickly enough for him. It will gradually stop. You can then continue to reduce the food output rate.

The horse immediately understands how Pipolino® works, pushing it with his nose as if it were a round stone under which there is green grass.

If your horse usually eats very quickly, gradually, over several weeks, switch from the usual rapid ingestion to the slow ingestion so as not to stress them. Follow the instructions carefully.
