Wet Dog Food
Finding the right wet dog food has never been easier. Pet Life carries the top rated selections of the very best wet food options available from superstar brands such as Blue Buffalo, Nutro, Weruva & Natural Balance. Our bevvy of options of foods include those that are Chunks in Gravy and Pate in texture and those that assist with a host of health features and benefits. Wet foods for dogs provide an added layer of flavor and texture that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. Since our wet food also comes in a variety of delicious flavors it means your pup will enjoy flavorful and nutritious meals daily. Kibble can sometimes be harder and tougher on your dog’s teeth and jaws therefore for older dogs especially we recommend perhaps adding some water to soften it up however if you're doing so than don't leave the food out for longer than 48 hours, the dryer the food the longer they'll always last, that is another reason why many opt to go with wet foods since they're easier to consume and they're known to digest easier and are available in raw format. In addition to that ingredients in wet foods are typically cleaner and fresher.
Where wet dog food differs from dry dog food is the texture, taste, natural ingredients and less preservatives. Wet dog foods also generally have higher concentrations of proteins whereas kibble can lack or not have sufficient protein values. Puppy dog foods or those designed for newborns will generally will contain higher counts or percentages of protein because it is required for growing puppies therefore adding some wet food to your dry dog foods that are formulated for adult dogs can help provide them with the additional protein they may lack since elder dogs need to sustain their current physique. This also gives your dog an easier time digesting their food since dry food can cause distress to your dog’s intestinal track. Adding wet dog food in the mix can ease their bowel movements. This is especially true for senior dogs since they have a harder time digesting dry food making it harder for them to alleviate themselves or go potty causing both ingestion and constipation.
With all the benefits of eating proper portions of wet dog food it’s easy to see why it’s a preferred choice as adopted by millions of Americans and consumers world-wide each and every year. With one of the largest selection of flavors and textures even picky pups would enjoy the fresh taste of something closer from farm to table is just what they need. Traditional and exotic food flavors to keep mealtime fresh for your dog here is a complete list of flavors we offer.
Traditional Wet Dog Food Flavors
Beef Wet Dog Food: One of the most traditional wet dog food flavors is beef since it contains more protein than most other sources. Since beef is a staple in a dog’s diet there isn’t a need to worry about your dog’s life stages when enjoying beef flavored dog food. Most offerings of beef wet dog food come with chunks of actual beef with a gravy for added texture and flavor. While these are meant to cover the complete nutritional needs for your dog adding dry dog food in the mix can help with their digestion rather than just offering only wet dog food.
Chicken Wet Dog Food: Chicken is one of the top 3 most common types of dog food available. Chicken has been a favorite of dogs for centuries and that isn’t stopping anytime soon. Chicken wet dog food comes in meaty chunks of chicken in a savory gravy designed to keep your dog’s wanting more. Having quality ingredients with real deboned chicken, added vitamins and minerals to keep your dog’s healthy while providing them with a natural wild diet.
Pork Wet Dog Food: While pork is one of the fattier types of wet dog food it also has one of the largest impacts on taste. Since pork wet dog food has this fat is contributes to your dog’s health by giving them the proper omega 6 fatty acids that are required for their diets, healthy skin and coats. Pork often includes additional veggies like carrots to enhance the flavor making pork wet dog food a staple in your dog’s diet.
Salmon Wet Dog Food: Salmon is the first fish type of wet dog food to appear, but it is a solid contender when thinking about wet dog food. While the other food options might have high omega 6 fatty acids fish has higher omega 3 content. As humans we ingest high amount of mega 6 fatty acids and not enough omega 3 acids. This can be the same for your dog so introducing new food types for your dog can help them get the additional nutrients that are found in other food. Salmon is high in both potassium and vitamin B12 which are both known to help your dog’s healthy lifestyle.
Turkey Wet Dog Food: Turkey while very similar to chicken wet dog food differs slightly in its nutritional values. While turkey is thought to have higher fat content it is in fact a leaner protein that chicken. Turkey also offers a higher concentration of protein where turkey has 28g per serving vs 25g with chicken. While turkey outperforms chicken in protein while containing less fat, they contain similar nutrients like vitamin B6 and other macro and micronutrients. Where chicken has the upper edge is with niacin where your dog needs 13 mg a day to maintain their healthy lifestyle which chicken provides.
Duck Wet Dog Food: While most wouldn’t consider duck a traditional dog food option it is just under pork salmon and turkey when it comes to flavors. While it used to be an exclusive exotic type of food is now available for dogs craving more than just the standard food. You dog wont cry “foul” when feasting on this protein enriched wet dog food. Like the other options duck flavored dog food comes in either chunks of duck or a puree of duck meat for dogs with sensitive digestion. Since duck is slightly more exclusive than the other offerings for traditional wet dog food it often doesn’t add in any fillers allowing for maximum nutrient absorption.
Exotic Wet Dog Food Flavors
While these types of foods are great for changing up your dog’s diet and can be used as an alternative to traditional wet dog food options exotics dog food flavors should be used to change up your dog’s meals rather than completely replacing them.
Quail Wet Dog Food: Quail is a great alternative for dogs with food allergies to traditional dog foods like beef and chicken. While some argue that quail tastes better than chicken that’s up for your dog to decide. Quail is also known as a hypo-allergen protein dog food making it easier to digest for dogs with sensitive stomachs. Since quail is an exotic type of flavor it is often made with raw ingredients giving your dog all the nutritional value that quail has to offer without the fillers.
Rabbit Wet Dog Food: Rabbit flavored dog food is a great way to transition your dog to a limited ingredient diet. Like quail it is a great source of protein for dogs with allergies to chicken, fish and beef. Since rabbit is used as hypo-allergen type of protein for dogs it often forgoes adding additional fillers like corn, grain and potatoes. This gives your dog a raw tasting dog food like what they normally would eat in the wild.
Pheasant Wet Dog Food: Exotic dog foods are one of the best ways to deal with a dog who is allergic to the most common ingredients in dog food. It’s because of this that dog food manufactures don’t include fillers offering a raw alternative dog food for dogs with allergies. Pheasant wet dog food is an exotic flavor that can help dogs with sensitive digestion.

Make no mistake that while other types of foods might be more popular than others that doesn't necessarily mean that they're more beneficial as all dogs are different and their knacks for food may vary perhaps depending on the breed, taste buds and their need to stick to their dietary regimen. There are a plethora of options out there and making the right choice isn't so easy. It's always a great idea to conduct your own due diligence and consult with your licensed veterinarian to find out if they're allergic to certain foods or ingredients and which foods, vitamins and minerals are best suited for them. There are also Dog Vitamins and Supplements that many do provide their pets that aren't getting the minerals they need from the foods their taste buds are drawn to therefore always do you best to pay close attention to their habits during and after meals to see if you notice any signs of movement and take a glance at their fecal matter from time to time and monitor their bowel movements. While dogs can't talk we can visually take note.
