As a pet owner, one of your major concerns is to make sure that your pet is fed well. Your pet needs to get the proper nutrition in order to ensure that it remains healthy, active and very happy. Unfortunately, for many first time pet owners, picking the right food can be quite difficult. Dog owners are very concerned with their dog’s diet because it really affects the health of their dogs directly. One of their major issues is determining what kind to get. Will it be dry or wet food? In order to help them with their decision, they should answer the following questions.
How much can they afford to set aside for their dog’s food? – as much as they want to pamper their dogs, dog owners have to deal with the reality that they need to work with limited funds. This means they only have to buy food that fits their budget. When it comes to dry and wet options, dry is less expensive than wet. Dry is cheaper to produce, store and market. Wet on the other hand, comes in a can and is often more expensive to make. This means if you have a limited budget, dry food is the best option for you.
How many times do they want to go to the store to buy their dog’s food? – wet food is often found in a can. This means if you feed your dog wet food exclusively, you will require frequent trips to the store. However, if feed your dog dry food, you can buy a huge bag that can last your dog for months. This means you do not need to frequent a grocery store just to get food for your dog.
Do they want their dogs to enjoy the food that they eat? – if you really care about your dog’s happiness, it is very important to feed it food that it actually enjoys. If your dog can only speak, it would probably tell you the food that it wants every day. However, since your dog cannot speak it is up to you to find out the kind of food that your dog wants. You can do an experiment by feeding your dog two separate bowls of wet and dry dog food and then observing which food your dog prefers. If you see that your dog prefers wet food more, then it must mean that your dog enjoys wet food rather than dry food.
