Dry vs. Canned Dog Food: Which is the Best for Your Dog?

Choosing Between Dry and Canned Dog Food

Do you feed your dog dry food, canned food, or a little bit of both? Both canned and dry dog foods can be excellent sources of balanced nutrition. Often the decision boils down to you and your dog's preferences. Here are few dog food facts from veterinarians to better help you make a decision.

Dry Dog Food: The Pros
Dry dog food is generally cheaper than canned food of a similar quality. "So if finances are tight," says Dr. Jennifer Coates, "feed a dry dog food that offers balanced nutrition derived from wholesome ingredients versus a low quality canned dog food." Dry kibble is also the most convenient type of dog food when it comes to storage and cleaning. Unlike with canned dog food, there's no need to make space for dry kibble in the refrigerator or clean the feeding area (perhaps even your dog) every time your dog eats. In fact, some types of dry dog food have been specially designed to clean your dog’s teeth and promote oral health.
