Canned food

Canned food can be found today even in supermarkets, not just in special pet centers. It is the same as by granules - too many kinds of them. It is not the same, can have huge differences. To select the appropriate brand and quality is difficult, but certainly do not seek for the cheapest. What is needed to follow, is the origin of meat in the can and its contents as a percentage.

Now days are canned food even as 100% of meat and are just great for traveling! But the price is sure higher.

The main ingredient is meat, also by-products, dietary supplements such as minerals and vitamins. As the energy supply itself is insufficient, therefore, combine them with pasta, rice, or often but realy wrong use them people with granules. The big plus is, if we go somewhere for a short time and need to feed the dog a few days and we have no possibility to find a butcher or take a freezer with meat for the dog.

As with pellets, canned food is divided by age and size. Before buying the brand, read the label for what breed and age category is it determined. Those, that have 100% meat have not the age on the label, are for all ages and breeds. Cans are also with various kinds of meat - chicken, turkey, beef, fish or a combination of the them. Some already contain pasta, others not.

They must not be immediately in the form of cans, you will find also finely ground paté or mini-cans.

Cans are not suitable to be daily food for the dog. They do not contain fresh vitamins or minerals, nor the meat. Its the best choice for short time. Looking on the price too, those realy high in quality and source of meat count with price about 5€ per 1kg can. By canned food is in principle important the same as by the granules - first place in the content must be clearly declared source of meat and should be more than 40%. The best are those with 100%. Beware, that the dogs, that do not eat cans can have diarrhea.
