Mixing It Up: Why Adding Wet Dog Food to Kibble or Cold Pressed can be a Game Changer!
We all know how much our furry friends mean to us. They're part of the family, after all. And just like us, they deserve a varied and balanced diet to keep them happy and healthy. One way to achieve this is by mixing things up a bit - specifically, by adding some wet dog food to their regular dry kibble or cold pressed meals.
Now, you might be wondering why you should bother with this extra step. when our cold pressed food is nutritionally complete anyway, as is the wet stuff. So here are a few of the reasons:
Texture and Taste
Let's face it, we all get bored if we have the same meal day in day out and that can be true for dogs too. Introducing wet dog food brings a whole new texture and flavour profile to the table, making meal times more interesting and varied.
We all know how important it is for our dogs to stay hydrated, especially during warmer months. Wet dog food has a higher moisture content compared to dry so can help with ensuring your pup is getting enough fluids. This is particularly beneficial for dogs who may not drink as much water as they should.
Ideal for Picky Eaters
We've all been there - a fussy pup turning their nose up at a perfectly good meal. Wet dog food can be a game-changer for picky eaters. Its rich aroma and palatable texture can entice even the most discerning dogs to chow down.
Sensitive Dental Health
If your dog has dental issues or is getting on in years, chewing on hard kibble might not be the easiest task. You can add water to our dry food to soften it but the wet food provides a softer option that's gentler on their teeth and gums. It's a great solution for dogs with dental sensitivities.
Special Dietary Needs
For dogs with specific dietary needs, adding wet food to their meals can be a smart choice. It's easier to mix in supplements or medication with wet food, ensuring you get that pill into their gut and get them on top form ASAP.
Adds a Gourmet Touch
Why should we have all the fun experimenting with new and delicious foods? Introducing wet dog food adds a touch of gourmet to your pup's mealtime experience. Maybe an everyday thing, maybe as a treat now and then.
Remember though, when considering changing your dogs diet you should be careful not to throw it all at them at once, follow the guidelines in our previous blog for some tips on that. And as ever, if in doubt, check with your vet.
