My eldest (canine) baby will be thirteen years old this year. Chance (hence my Twitter handle, @chancesmommy) is my first baby. He’s been with me through thick and thin; good and bad; for better and for worse. Chance has been my confidant and companion and now he prides himself in being Little One’s protector.
Though Chance has been in my life for nearly thirteen years, I only just learned about mixed feeding recently!
Did you know?
A regular mixed feeding diet of both dry and wet food for dogs and cats is the best way to keep your pet happy and healthy. Though both types of food are nutritionally balanced and complete, each offer unique and complementary health benefits. Dry food is a concentrated energy source, and its crunchy texture helps maintain our pet’s oral health, while wet food’s high moisture content supports proper organ function and a healthy urinary tract.
I always avoided wet dog food because I always thought dry dog food was better for our canine babies.
I recently learned that dry food is totally nutritionally complete, and is very good for their oral health, but there are some great benefits to wet food that Chance and Cupcake have been missing out on. It’s great to mix in wet foods as it helps keep them maintain a healthy weight (wet food is actually lower in calories than dry!), keeps them hydrated, and is great for organ function.
Over the course of the next four weeks, we’ll be updating you on our mixed feeding experience. I am excited to see during the program how and why mixed feeding is the way to go when feeding our furry friends!
