I apologize if this is a topic that has already been looked into. I haven't been on the forum in a long time and I've been doing some reading lately on canned vs. dry food...however, for CATS.
I am curious what the consensus is on the benefits of feeding canned instead of dry food to dogs. I have a dog that I have tried on various diets including raw. She does not take well to raw. She is probably the pickiest dog I have ever known when it comes to food. Regardless, she has been on Blue Buffalo for awhile and then didn't take to it anymore. I put her on Wellness Senior as it seems to be the only food she doesn't mind and tolerates. I guess I forgot to mention she would also get the runs on certain foods and has a sensitive stomach. So she's been on the dry for awhile. No, its not grain free and I know Wellness isn't the greatest of brands either. But looking at the ingredients, its not bad either. She also gets people food, in terms of boiled chicken, barley or buckwheat, some boiled carrots, yogurt, eggs, etc. She is fine with these foods, no problems or runs.
I've bought her some canned food in the last couple of days and she loves it. Gobbles it up as if she hasn't eaten in days. I bought the Blue Buffalo adult chicken. Again, its not grain free but the ingredients looked pretty decent.
I have read that cats should not at all have any dry food in their diet, but I also know we can't really compare dogs and cats since it is often argued whether dogs are true carnivores...whereas we know cats are.
What is the consensus on feeding an all wet/canned diet to dogs and what brands should I be looking at? Any feedback and experience would be greatly appreciated as clearly this is a topic I missed out on when researching dog foods in the past
. Thanks all!
