German Shepherd Dog Dry Dog Food
Advantages of Dry
1. Convenience: If you're one of those dog owners that likes to pour the dog food in your dog’s dish and then just leave it for the rest of the day, this would definitely be more convenient for you. There is one disadvantage to that, though. It can cause obesity. Most dogs will eat what's in front of them whether it's one cup or three cups. A measured amount once in the morning and once in the evening is always the best habit to get into.
2. Less Expensive: Dry dog food is less expensive than wet, but always make sure you read labels. You should always have either your protein or carbohydrate listed first followed by a good fat. Here is an example of what the label should look like: Chicken, chicken meal, potatoes chicken fat (this includes any protein like beef, chicken, lamb, fish, bison, venison, etc) Or Potatoes, chicken, (or chicken meal) chicken fat (this includes sweet potatoes and BROWN rice...never white rice), any protein and/or protein meal) Do not buy food that has corn (this is just a filler), soy (causes a lot of allergies) or white rice. There is no nutritional value in this food. NEVER buy anything that has by-products of any kind in it!
3. Caloric Density: There is much more caloric density in dry dog food due to wet having a lot of water in it. Remember, if you are going with dry, "premium" dog foods are better. Please understand that even though it will cost you more at the cash register, you will use less at feeding time due to its nutritional value, therefore, the cost will actually seem the same.
