Health Benefits of Wet Food for Dogs
All dogs require the right food and choosing the right diet can be a challenging task for pet parents. Traditionally, more dog owners choose dry food. However, veterinarians also recommend eating a mixture of wet food as the main meal. That is why.
Makes meal time fun. Dogs easily get bored eating the same thing every day and some dog owners have to live with the fact that their dogs are hard eaters for the rest of their lives. When this happens, pet owners may want to consider trying a new flavor.
According to Dr. Sasa Koraming, Director of Scientific Communications, Mars Pet Nutrition in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, “Wet food not only contains 70 to 80 percent of the vitamins and minerals your pet needs, but it is also rich with protein. , offering a complete and nutritionally balanced meal. “The interesting thing is that its durability is very attractive to most dogs.”
The inclusion of wet food in dog meals gives them a variety of flavors and textures. For mixed food, dog owners can add wet food as a cover over dry food.
Maintains hydration level. Wet food hydrates dogs that do not drink enough water on a daily basis. It can also help improve proper kidney function.
Daza advised: “Because wet food has a high moisture content, it helps dogs maintain a healthy urinary system. To ensure that your dog is well hydrated, it is still essential to always provide clean and fresh water every day. ”
Weight loss due to AIDS. The main ingredient of wet food is protein, which has a lower carbohydrate content. As a result, they have a lower calorie density and help increase dogs’ satisfaction.
“Incorporating wet food into your dog’s meals will prevent the absorption of excess calories by ensuring proper nutrition,” explained Dr. Saza.
She added: “Some pet parents feed their dogs pet food, and this can lead to weight gain and loose stools. But by feeding your dog wet food or a mixture of wet and dry your dog, may result in smaller and stronger stools.
Tooth friendly. Lastly, since wet food is made up of soft pieces, it is a good choice for dogs with dental disorders, gum problems or weak senses. Depending on comfort levels, the amount of wet food to be mixed with dry food may vary.

PAWSsion Project Foundation Inc. , a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehabilitating abused and neglected dogs, is one of Ayala Malls’s valued partners in achieving this mission. Ayala Foundation President Fernando Zobel de Ayala and sisters Sophia Zobel-Elizalde and Monica Zobel de Ayala contributed cash donations that significantly supported the construction of an animal shelter in the PAWSsion project on a 6,000-square-foot plot of land just purchased in Bacolod City.
To further the collaboration, Ayala Malls Capitol Central hosted Paws for a PAWSsion Project Cause, which mobilized an effort to donate pet supplies to stray dogs. Ayala Malls Vertis North also held the passion as the Quezon City location made it easy to set up PAWSsion Summer Camp. The program encouraged shepherds to adopt stray cats and dogs, giving them the opportunity to find their eternal home and experience the love and care they deserve from their furry parent.
