5 Benefits of Dry Dog Food

We said we would write about it, and now we are. That’s right, first we gave you the 5 benefits of feeding your dog wet food, and now we’re giving you 5 benefits of feeding your dog dry food.

So, without further ado.

  1. Dental benefits. Dry food, or kibble as it is also commonly known, can be very beneficial to your dog’s teeth. In addition to having ingredients that help reduce dental plaque and gingivitis, the excess chewing required to eat kibble can also help your dog have healthier gums and decreased bacteria in their mouth. So not only will your dog be eating well, but they will also have a stunning, glimmering, healthy toothed smile!
  2. It lasts a really long time. When it comes to buying dog food, especially when you have to buy a lot of it for bigger breeds of dog, being able to buy it in bulk and store it is extremely beneficial, especially when it comes to cost (dry food is also, on a calorie for calorie basis, more inexpensive than wet food according to an article from McGill University). Getting big bags of dry dog food also saves you from having to go to the pet store or grocery store every few days. Finally, the stability of dry food means you can leave it out in your dog’s bowl for a longer period of time than wet food, which is great for dogs that like to eat on their schedule.
  3. Dry food can be used in an automatic feeder. This is great for those times where you’ll be away for a while and want to ensure that your dog is getting enough food. Also, if your dog eats too fast, which can lead to vomiting and other potential ailments, you can also use kibble in a slow feeder.
  4. Dry food requires a lot less packaging than wet food. As a result, there is less garbage for you to dispose of, and less garbage created is always a positive for the environment.
  5. There are many toys for dogs that utilize kibble. That means you can mix your dog’s eating and playing at the same time. Isn't it amazing how they figured out a way to mix those 2 great things for dogs? Now if they can only find a way to do the same for adult humans!

We hope these potential benefits will help you when it comes to deciding which kind of food you choose to feed your dog. We would also like to suggest WellyChef Homemade Dog Food Done Right Base Mix, which allows you to mix several healthy food ingredients with fresh meat.

Remember, dogs, like people, can be picky when it comes to their food, so don’t be discouraged if you find they don’t like a certain kind of dry food, or a particular brand. It won’t take long for you to discover exactly what they like, and once you do they’ll love you for it!
