The Benefits of Wet Food for Dogs

You want the very best for your dog because, well, they deserve the very best. But did you know that wet dog food is one of the most nutritious foods you can give your pooch? If you’re thinking about introducing your furry friend to wet food, here are a few facts to help you decide what’s best for the two of you.


Why Choose Wet Dog Food?

Wet dog food has a number of benefits — ranging from taste to convenience to health.

Variety of Flavors

As you may be finding out, dogs — and puppies, specifically — can be surprisingly picky about their food. Wet food offers a wide range of flavors that appeal to your dog, so it may be easier to find a meal that makes your little one light up. With dozens of lip-smackin’-good flavors to choose from, CESAR® canine cuisine dishes offer everything from succulent shredded chicken to hearty grilled porterhouse steak.

Just remember: Every dog is different, so try feeding your pup a variety of CESAR® wet dog food to learn their preferences. Whether your dog is craving duck, turkey or filet mignon, we’ve got you covered!

Texture Variation

Texture can make all the difference for some dogs, and there’s no doubt that most dogs love meat, meat and more meat. Wet food has more qualities in common with the meaty, chewy dishes dogs love, so you may have more luck getting your picky eater interested in mealtime. It’s the reason CESAR® meals often contain real cuts of meat or poultry as the first ingredient.

Single-serving Convenience

Humans love fresh food, and so do our dogs. CESAR® canine cuisine dishes come in a convenient single-serving container, so every bite is tasty and fresh for your pup. And that means no slobbery leftovers stored in your fridge next to your own lunch.

Higher Moisture Content

Bladder stones (caused by calcium oxalate) are more common in small-breed dogs. One way to help them maintain urinary tract health is to make sure their daily moisture intake is adequate. Wet food has a higher level of moisture than dry food, so serving it on a daily basis — along with readily available fresh water —helps with moisture intake.

More Food, Fewer Calories

Another advantage of wet food is that it contains less than half the calories of dry food. In other words, wet food offers a larger portion size with fewer calories, compared to eating dry food alone. If you are trying to help manage your dog’s weight, wet food could be a good solution.


Making the Switch to Wet Dog Food

If you’re planning on transitioning your dog from a dry food diet to a mixed or wet food diet, remember that gradual change is best. Start by offering one wet meal a day and seeing how their appetite adapts.

CESAR® wet dog food can be served by itself, mixed in with kibble or even used as a tasty topper on dry food for larger dogs! Give your pup the flavor and variety they can’t resist. Soon enough, your dog will have a new favorite meal — and a new reason you’re their favorite human.
