Ok I sometimes Mix a can of Wet with rex dry food and he LOVES it! I only do it like 3 times a week as a treat. I wanted to do it more since he loves it so much but wanted to know how much is to much? Or can i give it to him whenever I want to?
i am NAUGHTY and i mix in about two tablespoons of wet food on top of his dry kibble almost once a day!!!!
i feel so bad for him eating boring dry food!
i sometimes also put yoghurt on top (which is good for them) or some rice, or something that's not boring dry kibble!
:oops: :oops:

There are many excellent quality canned foods...they don't all contain by products.

Canned food is no different than dry in terms of quality. There are good and bad of both.

If you read the directions of many canned foods often times it states canned should be mixed with dry (25% canned to 75% dry is what I seem to remember) for the best results and a firm stool.

Yep! There are some canned foods (Merrick, especially) that smell and look like (and have similar ingredients as) Campbells Chunky soups! :lol:

I usually mix the dogs food with Merrick wet food only at night though. Right now I am out though so they are getting a break from the wet food. They love it when it's mixed in though. Whenever I open a can of Merrick I totally want to take a bite, it always smells soooo good! lol

Never feel guilty about feeding canned food to your dog. There are a lot of misunderstandings regarding wet food. First of all, a quality canned food is better for your dog's overall health than dry kibble. Dry kibble can draw extra moisture from the body and in turn make it harder for the kidneys to process the way they need to. Wet/canned food solves this problem. It generally contains more meat as well and is a lot more palatable. If you can afford to feed canned only, it would be a benefit to your dog. Kibble alone is by no means unhealthy, but when feeding kibble as the sole diet it is important to pour some water over it right before feeding it to your dog. This helps with dehydration, digestion and in ensures the kidneys will have enough water to help them do their work!

Mine have canned food, Butchers Tripe. I mix it with dog meal/Burns and sometimes I add SA37 and olive oil. They love it clean bowl everyime. Canned food is good if your dog isn't drinking enough as it does contain mostly water.

My husband gave me a funny look the other day when i was feeding Patch (DVP organic formula, dry) and i commented how i'd love to just taste it to see what it actually tastes like!

Has anyone else been tempted to do this??

I mean, it wouldn't kill me would it!?

OK I CAN SEE ALL THE STRANGE LOOKS YOU ARE GIVING ME FROM HERE!!!!!!!!! :oops: :oops:
