Choosing the right food for your pet dog or cat is important. There’s so much choice out there!

But let’s start by narrowing it down: What is best for our furry friend, dry food or wet food?

There are many factors to consider, such as your pet’s age, activity level, and health needs, but let’s look at the pros and cons of wet food first:


  • Wet food is more palatable for many dogs and cats.
  • It is higher in water content, which can help keep your pet hydrated.
  • Wet food is often easier to digest for dogs and cats with sensitive stomachs.
  • It can be a good option for pets with dental problems


  • Wet food is more expensive than dry food.
  • It has a shorter shelf life and must be refrigerated after opening.
  • Animals can make a mess when eating wet food.
  • It can contribute to weight gain if not fed in moderation

When it comes to dry food, there are also things to consider:


  • Dry food is more convenient to store and feed.
  • It has a longer shelf life than wet food.
  • Dry food is more affordable than wet food.
  • It can help to clean the pet’s teeth.


  • Dry food is not as palatable as wet food for some dogs and cats.
  • It is lower in water content, which can lead to dehydration.
  • Dry food can be harder to digest for dogs and cats with sensitive stomachs.
  • Dry food may contain more fillers and preservatives than wet food

Which type of food is right for your pet?

The best type of food for your pet will depend on their individual needs. The best judge of that is your veterinarian, so definitely consult with them on your choice! They can help you choose a food that meets your pet’s nutritional needs and health conditions.

Here are some additional factors to consider when choosing between wet and dry food:

Your pet’s age: Puppies and kittens need a higher-protein diet than adult dogs and cats. Wet food is often a good option for them due to it’s being higher in protein content.

Your pet’s activity level: Active dogs and cats need more calories than sedentary dogs and cats. Dry food is often a good option for active pets because it is more calorie-dense than wet food.

Your pet’s health: If your pet has any health conditions, such as kidney disease or diabetes, you may need to choose a food that is specifically formulated for their needs. Talk to your veterinarian about the best type of food for your pet’s health.

No matter which type of food you choose, make sure to feed your pet a high-quality food that is appropriate for their age, activity level, and health needs. You should also feed your pet a consistent amount of food each day and make sure they have access to fresh, clean water.

With a bit of research, and some well thought out questions to your vet, you can choose the best type of food to help them stay healthy and happy.
