When deciding what to choose for your dog, you should first find a pet food that gives them excellent nutrition to fulfil their health needs. Many people think this requires a combination of wet and dry food; however, this is not the case.
Their food should also be something they find appetising, and while wet food is a great way to give your dog a hydration boost, dry food is excellent for keeping their dental health in check and contains all of the necessary nutrients healthy and active dogs require.
As wet and dry dog foods have benefits, another option to consider is to feed a mixture of both which can also help those fussy eaters.
What’s good about dry food?
Dry dog food is generally what most owners favour as it is usually more convenient, but there are also many health benefits to dry food that do wonders for your dog. A big plus to feeding your dog a dry diet is that it helps their dental health. The texture of dry kibble encourages your dog to chew before they swallow, which improves their digestion and also helps to clean their teeth.
All Eukanuba™ adult and senior diets use an S-shaped kibble that helps scrape away plaque deposits on your dog’s teeth. Our adult and senior dry diets are also coated in a polyphosphate that helps bind calcium in your dog’s saliva to help stop tartar formation between meals. In addition, 3D DentaDefense is included to reduce tartar buildup and promote clean teeth and healthy gums
What’s good about wet food?
Although dry food might be a more popular choice, some owners will feed their dogs a wet diet to better please fussy eaters and give an added hydration boost. As wet food has a rich, meaty aroma, picky dogs can be more enticed to eat (and hopefully finish) their meals.
For pets that may not be getting enough water throughout the day, wet food can provide them with an additional dose of hydration because of its high moisture content.
