We’ve answered some of the most commonly asked questions about wet food for dogs that every pet parent should know about!

Are all wet dog foods complete meals?

Dog dinner

Wet foods are the best dog food for summer. However, depending on the brand, there are two kinds of wet dog food that should be taken into account:

The first are complete meals which translate to stand-alone meals that are enough to meet all the nutritional requirements and satisfy your dog’s dietary needs. They can be fed in moderation and in accordance with the suggestions given by your vet. 

The second are supplementary or complementary meals that are individually not sufficient to reach all the nutritional requirements since they have no added supplements. These wet foods should be mixed with your dog’s dry food or their favourite home-made meals.

HUFT TIP: Always remember to check the label/packaging and see if they ask the product to be fed with other foods. 

Which is better—wet or dry dog food?

White pug

When it comes to comparing wet dog food to dry dog food, remember that it all depends on your dog’s nutritional needs and what your vet recommends. It’s necessary to provide your dog a balanced meal. As mentioned in the beginning, wet dog food provides hydration, is easier to chew, smells amazing and gives your dog a better satisfaction of having a meal. Dry dog food on the other hand has better dental benefits, is convenient, pocket-friendly and can be easily put into different feeder toys for dogs. A good balance between the two should always be maintained.

What are some other cooling foods or drinks for dogs in summer that can be given apart from wet food?

The most common cooling foods for dogs include watermelon, cucumber, strawberries, dog-friendly ice-creams and popsicles. These can be given as a treat if your pooch seems to get tired of their regular foods. You can also freeze your food into a KONG toy for extended fun meal-time. 

When it comes to drinks for dogs in summer, water is extremely essential. Apart from that, you can also blend up some fruits and yogurt for a smoothie or give them coconut water which is full of electrolytes, diluted in drinking water.

What are the other benefits of wet food apart from hydration?

Depending on your dog’s age and breed, there are specific brands of wet food that cater to your dog’s special health needs. There are special diets for dogs who require gluten-free, low fat and veterinary diets. You can also try grain-free options like Kennel Kitchen and Schesir, hypoallergenic wet food like Little BigPaw and even prescription food tailored to digestive needs like Hill’s Prescription Diet Digestive Care or Royal Canin. 

We hope that our curated list of Top 12 wet food for dogs in summer will help you select the best summer meals for your pup. Have a great summer!
