Vet Advice | Should I Feed My Dog Wet or Dry Food?


One of the questions I get from a lot of dog owners is whether they should feed a wet or dry food.

You've got to remember that there are pros and cons to both and here's a couple thoughts to help you out.

Frst of all the dry food is obviously very easy to deal with.

You got to remember that it's highly compressed and it can have a lot of calories in it and in our dogs we really want to prevent obesity.

So you can use our weight management tool to help guide you with that, but you always want to be careful with that with dry food it's very easy to put too much of it in the bowl.

With the wet food, you also got to remember that you're going to be saving some of it.

You might be putting it in the fridge.

It will lose some of its flavor when you do that as it oxidizes and your dog may not be as interested in it but I think using a combination is great because the dry food helps abraid their teeth and prevent some dental disease.

The wet food has a lot more moisture content and it's also a little more flavorful and that will entice your dog to eat a little better so a wet or dry food won't have a major impact on your dog's health.

I think the amount of it is probably one of the most important features to control and you'll find more information about that on healthcareforpets.
