Whole Dog Journal's 2012 Canned Dog Food Review
How to choose a good wet food for your dog (and why you should feed at least some wet food if you don’t already).
Recently, a neighbor asked me for advice about her dog, who was vomiting and subdued. As part of our discussion about the dog’s upset stomach, I asked what kind of dog food she fed to the dog. She responded that she fed him high-quality wet food, “not the cheap stuff.”
While the price of a pet product shouldn’t ever be considered the sole indicator of a top quality dog food, you have to keep in mind that products that contain high-quality ingredients will necessarily be priced a lot higher than bargain brands.
Most dogs digest wet foods with far fewer digestive problems (such as excessive gas, diarrhea, or constipation) than dogs who eat dry kibble. Wet food is far more palatable to most dogs than dry food. This is a huge benefit to any dog who needs to gain weight, whether due to illness, age, or high activity.
If you’re sold on the idea of canned food, great! Now it’s time to look for good ones in this year’s canned dog food review.
