Choosing dog food can be overwhelming with all the array of choices available, with so many different flavors, benefits, and recipes, it can be hard to decided which type of dog food is right for your best friend. Where do you start? The easiest step would be to consider the basic question, is wet or dry dog food better for my pet?

Depending on the circumstances and the specific requirements of your dog, each type of dog food has pros and cons.

Depending on your dog's nutritional requirements, both types of dog food are viable options, but each has advantages and disadvantages of its own.

Benefits of Wet Dog Food

Some advantages of wet dog food, sometimes known as "canned food," over dry food include:

  • Higher moisture content: If your dog doesn't drink as much as they should or if they have a health issue that could benefit from proper hydration, wet food may be a smart option. A dog with a history of kidney or urinary problems is one illustration.

  • Palatability: When compared to dry food, canned dog food frequently has a stronger aroma and flavor. If a dog's appetite is lowered due to illness or age, this may encourage them to eat.

  • Increased satiety is helpful in weight management, especially in dogs who appear to have an endless hunger. Wet dog food tends to generate a longer-lasting impression of being "full."

  • Wet food may be easier for dogs with dental issues or other oral abnormalities to chew than dry food.

Benefits of Dry Dog

There are many advantages to dry dog food, or "kibble," that wet food does not have, including:

  • Benefits for dental health: Chewing their food when eating dry food enables dogs to avoid tartar accumulation and subsequent periodontal disease.

  • Convenience: Dry diets are far simpler to pre-portion than wet food, and they won't go bad if left out all day. This may be advantageous for grazer dogs.

  • Financially viable: Dry diets may be less expensive to buy and store long-term depending on the brand of food.

  • Food enrichment: Kibble is simpler to incorporate into slow feeders and food puzzles that could enhance a dog's quality of life by stimulating their minds.

Another choice that can offer the best of both worlds is mixing wet and dry dog food. To avoid overfeeding, it is crucial to make sure you are still giving the recommended daily feeding volume.


The easiest method to achieve this is to have your pet's daily calorie needs for maintenance determined by your neighborhood veterinarian. Then you can figure out how many calories your dog needs to consume each day in dry and wet food, taking into account any calories from treats.
