Does wet food offer my dog all the essential nutrients?
Wet food for dogs is a complete feed that supplies your four-legged friend with all the healthy and essential nutrients. The formula, which is specially adapted to the dogs’ needs, contains proteins, carbohydrates, fat and vitamins, minerals and trace elements. In addition, wet food supplies the dog with plenty of liquid. It covers a large part of its water requirements and ensures a pleasant feeling of satisfaction, because it does not bloat in the stomach, unlike dry food. The special flavour is also satisfying for fussy eaters. Prebiotics support the development of a healthy intestinal flora. Other important components are antioxidants to protect the cells and strengthen the immune system, as well as proteins to support muscles and promote healthy skin and fur.
Which wet dog food is suitable for puppies?
Many food manufacturers offer special types of food for puppies, adult dogs and seniors. Particularly in puppy age, the right wet food provides your dog with important nutrients such as calcium at a higher concentration corresponding to his age. Calcium and phosphorus are contained in a balanced ratio and form the basis for healthy bone growth. The soft consistency of the wet food also makes it easier to manage when puppies’ teeth change.
Are there special wet foods for dogs with allergies and intolerances?
Allergies and intolerances are also widespread among dogs. Some animals have a problem with kidney stones and require a special diet, others suffer from liver diseases and others have a sensitive stomach. Some manufacturers adapt to this problem and offer food types that are specifically tailored to the various diseases. These wet dog foods enable the diet to be adapted to the health restrictions. For dogs with allergies, there is wet food that contains only one source of protein and one source of carbohydrates. With varieties such as “lamb and rice” or “venison and potato” you can select ingredients that your four-legged friend can tolerate well.
How much wet food does my dog need?
The right amount of food for the dog depends on several factors. The amounts also vary based on the different needs of individual breeds. Small dogs often only need a fraction of the amount required for a large dog. Older dogs eat less than young, agile animals, and due to their increased calorie consumption, lively or sporting dogs need more than quiet animals. Wet food has the advantage that it is less concentrated than dry food. This makes it easier to feed and your pet is full faster. The information on the packaging shows you how much wet food a dog needs for its size and breed.
Should dogs stay with one variety of wet food?
Some dogs react sensitively to a frequent change in the type of feed, while others love variety. Combined feeding is popular with many owners. If well tolerated, it is possible to feed some of the daily ration wet and the rest dry. Watch which wet food is received well by your dog and adjust feeding to his needs.
