I am interested in dehydrated food.
What are the pros and cons of it? Compared to dry? To canned?
Dehydrated food is less processes than most canned foods, and obviously much less than dry food. As far as feeding goes, it’s fed about the same as any canned diet, in a higher volume than dry.
It’s a good choice for dogs that need a less processed and/or more limited diet (you can buy pre-mixes where you add your own protein source).
And both canned and dehydrated are better for adding water to the diet. They are more species appropriate, due to the water content.
About the only down side is cost, but small dogs aren’t very expensive to feed.
Cons: it’s the most expensive! Some brands might not hydrate as well as others.
Pros: shelf stable, easy to travel with, doggie daycare will serve it as opposed to frozen raw food, light weight, can be used as treats
I have used The Honest Kitchen for almost ten years; always will. My dogs love it! I can’t add to the pros & cons; Sandy & Akari covered them.
I am feeding my 12 year old 100 lb. lab nutro for seniors/large breed-in a can. He seems fine with it, but I am looking for some reassurance that this is a good diet for him. Thanks
