Wet puppy food: balanced and needs-based diet for young dogs
Puppies have special requirements when it comes their daily food, with a strong focus on protein. A species-appropriate supply of all the necessary nutrients, minerals and vitamins supports optimal growth. Wet puppy food is the ideal alternative to dry food and provides your dog with everything it needs for a healthy and vigorous start in life. When choosing wet puppy food, you should consider the breed-specific characteristics, as not every food is suitable for every dog.
Benefits of wet puppy food
Unlike dry food, wet puppy food contains a lot of water, so that you don’t have to constantly monitor your dog’s fluid intake throughout the day, although a bowl of fresh drinking water should of course be available at all times. Wet food is juicier, smells more appetising and is often associated with greater acceptance than dry food, but it also spoils faster. Wet puppy food must be stored in the refrigerator after opening and should be used within a few days.
Which puppy wet food is suitable for which breed?
Always choose a wet food that is specifically designed for puppies. The size of the dog is particularly important. In small dogs, growth is secondary; in contrast, large breeds usually continue to grow until 20 months of age, and during that time they need less calorie-rich food in order to grow more slowly and protect their joints in the process.
It’s all about the ingredients: what you should pay attention to in puppy wet food
Meat should always be the main ingredient. Fish, beef or poultry are particularly suitable protein sources. In addition, a balanced and natural formula with vitamins, trace elements and minerals is the basis for healthy growth. Additives such as sugar and soy as well as artificial preservatives, dyes and flavourings should be avoided to the extent possible. Some manufacturers add green-lipped mussel extract to wet puppy food to support the joints, or other minerals such as calcium or phosphorus for healthy teeth and bones.
What is also important for wet puppy food
You can tell a lot about the quality of wet puppy food from your dog’s coat and faeces, among other things. If your puppy has a smooth and shiny coat and passes small, well-formed stools several times a day, it’s a sign that the food is well tolerated and optimally utilised. If you want to change your puppy’s wet food, make sure that you switch gradually over several days to allow their young and sensitive stomach to get used to the new food.
