Like many pet parents, I keep one of my measuring cups permanently in the dog-food bag. For me, it’s the 1/2 cup I use to scoop out Dolly and Spot’s breakfast and dinner. Today’s Friday Freebie gives pet parents back their full measuring cup sets, while making feeding time more efficient and kibble storage more secure.
The new KlipScoop from Popware for Pets combines a dry food scoop, measuring cup, and bag clip into one handy tool.
Not only does it make the lives of pet parents easier, it also reinforces the feeding of proper portions. More than 53 percent of adult dogs and 55 percent of cats are classified as overweight or obese by their veterinarians, according to the most recent statistics from the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention.
Among the many health risks associated with pet obesity are joint problems, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, breathing problems, and shortened life expectancy. This cool three-in-one tool will help you practice proper portion control.
The KlipScoop contains no harmful bisphenol A (more commonly known as BPA) and goes in the dishwasher. It comes in sizes 1/2 cup, 1 cup, and 2 cups, as well as three colors: lime green, purple, and pink. It costs $6.99 for the 1/2 cup, $7.99 for the 1 cup, and $9.99 for the 2 cup — but three lucky Dogster readers will get a KlipScoop for free!

I don’t head to the dog park without my Collapsible Travel Cup.
