Canned Dog Food
K9Cuisine offers tons of canned dog food options, with features ranging from grain free and limited ingredient to organic and all natural. With all of the different varieties to choose from, you will easily be able to find a canned dog food that suits your pup’s tastes and nutritional needs.
There are many reasons dog lovers choose canned over dry dog food, despite the slight inconvenience and cost difference posed by a canned diet. Since the nature of the two are so different, even foods made by the same brand will not look similar. For example, dry dog foods require high carbohydrate levels in order for the kibble to bind together properly, but this is unnecessary for canned food. Thus, cans usually include less carbs and more protein – a healthier alternative for any canine.
If your dog is sensitive to preservatives in his food, canned might be the way to go. The canning process naturally eliminates the need for preservatives, while dry foods have added ingredients to prolong their shelf life. Plus, because meat is more plentiful, canned food is more appealing to pets and their owners, so artificial colors and flavors are less likely to be used. These factors mean that sensitive pets will likely do well on canned dog food. However, be sure to discard any canned food left in your dog’s dish after a couple of hours and cover and refrigerate opened cans to keep the food from going rancid.
Does your pup have a problem maintaining a proper weight? Canned dog food can help with that too! For obese dogs, the high water content in canned food makes a dog feel full on fewer calories, which is crucial for weight loss and management. Underweight dogs will not lose pounds by eating canned food. In fact, because dogs tend to greatly prefer the taste, smell and texture of canned food over dry, pets that need to put on weight are able to do this because canned food tempts their appetites.
Want the perks of canned food without making the full switch? Any of K9Cuisine’s canned dog food options would be great as a topper for dry dog food to enhance the taste and bring some additional health benefits.
