DIETARY NUTRITION THAT HELPS VET CHANGE YOUR DOG'S LIFE.
At Us with pets, we have a close collaboration with several vets in Denmark. Therefore, we have been given the opportunity to sell e.g. Prescription Diet from Hill's. Us with pets exclusively mediates the sale of disease diets - and you should ALWAYS talk to your vet before buying disease diets for your dog or cat, such as Prescription Diet, so you don't end up giving your (already sick) pet the wrong food.
Veterinary food is scientifically based dietary nutrition for dogs with specific health problems or special nutritional needs and should be given under the supervision of a vet, so be sure to ask your vet how it can help your dog.
Benefits of giving wet food to dogs
Wet food, also called canned food, is a good option to get some of the things that your dog might not get from dry food. This includes:
Higher liquid content:
Water is an important source of nutrients for dogs so they can maintain a healthy fluid balance, which is necessary for many bodily functions. If your dog is not drinking enough water or you live in a dry and warm place, wet food can help keep your dog hydrated. Even if you give your dog wet food, you should also ensure that your dog has free access to fresh water.
Helps dogs who have difficulty chewing:
Dogs can have difficulty chewing dry food for a number of reasons, such as missing teeth, a crooked jaw or a very small mouth. In these cases, wet food may be easier for them to eat.
Older dogs lose some of their sense of smell and may therefore not be as interested in their dry food as before. Wet food often has a strong smell and taste, which can help your older dog's appetite.
Wet food is often available in several flavors and textures, which gives your dog variety. Picky dogs who are transitioning from one food to another and even dogs who need to lose weight can benefit from eating wet food.
REMEMBER to always talk to your vet first.
