cute-puppy-on-leashDogs tend to really love moist canned food. It’s typically higher in fat and contains a lot of water. This makes it a tasty treat, but large dogs may need to eat a lot of it to get enough calories. Many veterinarians recommend dry dog food for regular meals. Kibble is also better for your dogs teeth. Canned dog food may be a better option in certain situations. For example, if you want to increase your dogs water intake. Overweight dogs may also benefit from canned food. They’ll feel full without eating as many calories. If your dog is a fussy eater, he may very well eat if canned food is mixed with his regular kibble. To determine the best diet for your individual dog, talk to your veterinarian. Don’t forget to always have plenty of water in his dog water bowl.
