Dried food is much better for dogs. More protein and nutrients are packed into kibble than moist food. Sure, a dog can have a balanced diet on moist food, but you end up feeding so much more of it (3-4 cans a day for a 50lb. dog), and stools are often loose because of it. Bella and Remy get canned food as an occasional treat and as a stuffing in their Kong to keep them busy for a few minutes.
