Understanding how a dog approaches its food, whether by sight, taste or smell, is a great recipe for figuring out their dietary preferences. No matter what food consumers choose for their dogs based on their sensory preferences, they have to be provide nutritional value. Canned or wet dog foods offer dietary benefits that other types of dog foods may not have.

For dogs that don’t drink as much water as they should, wet foods are a good source of hydration. They can also enjoy larger portions of it without adding more calories to their diet. Additionally, wet or canned foods take certain health issues into consideration that make them practical choices.

Wet foods often are richer in scent and flavor, so they are good options for older canines who have lost some of their olfactory senses and thus are more inclined to eat a food that has these traits. They are also beneficial for dogs who are ill and cannot smell as well, assuring they get the proteins, vitamins and minerals necessary for their overall health. Wet foods are also good for dogs who have missing teeth, smaller mouths or other oral conditions.

Retailers should know all the benefits of wet and canned foods. By building a bond with consumers and learning about their pup’s specific needs or situations, retailers will know how and when to recommend wet and canned foods to a dog’s diet.

The following products offer high quality ingredients that are wholesome and organic, promoting health and wellness. And each product features delectable flavors that dogs love and beg for. Having a wide variety of products like these gives consumers multiple options to provide for their pups that suit their needs every day of the year.
