Should I feed my dog wet food?

As pet owners ourselves, we know how tricky it can be to know if we're doing the best for our furry friends. There are lots of different things to consider, and whether or not to try wet food is just one of them. We've pulled together some of the key benefits to help you decide if adding wet food to your dog's diet is the right call for you.

With a variety of flavours designed to satisfy even the most discerning palates, Harringtons wet food is 100% complete and balanced and offers numerous benefits that contribute to the overall health and well-being of your four-legged family member.

Harringtons wet dog food contains essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to support overall health and vitality. Here are some key benefits:

  • Digestive health: The wet texture can aid in digestion and promote healthy bowel movements, and it's gluten free! It is especially beneficial for dogs with sensitive stomachs or those prone to digestive issues.
  • Hydration support: Wet dog food has a high moisture content, which can help prevent dehydration and promote healthy kidney function. This is particularly beneficial for dogs that don't drink enough water or those with urinary tract issues.
  • Joint support: Our wet food contains salmon oil, a natural source of omega 3 which is an anti-inflammatory to help support joint health. This is particularly beneficial for senior dogs or large breeds prone to joint problems.

Each flavour is carefully crafted with freshly prepared meat and fish ingredients, gently cooked using our unique FreshCook® process to lock in nutrition and flavour. Some of our delectable flavours include:

Chicken & Potato:

Made with succulent chicken and nourishing potatoes, it offers a protein-packed meal that supports muscle development and provides sustained energy.

Salmon & Potato:

Ideal for dogs with sensitivities or allergies, this flavour combines omega-3-rich salmon with potatoes to promote healthy skin and a glossy coat. A great choice for dogs with food sensitivities or those following a grain-free diet.

Turkey & Potato:

Turkey is a lean source of protein and the recipe has been carefully formulated to provide wholesome grain free nutrition and contains no artificial colours or flavours, no dairy, no soya and no added wheat.

Duck & Potato:

Made with freshly prepared duck, which is a novel protein so great for dogs with sensitivities or fussy palates. This recipe also contains seaweed to support oral hygiene and provide a natural source of vitamins and minerals. 

Should I feed a combined diet of wet and dry food?

Combining wet dog food with dry dog food can offer a well-rounded diet that meets all your dog's nutritional needs. Mixing wet and dry food can make mealtime more enjoyable for your furry friend, as the combination of textures and flavours can encourage even picky eaters to finish their meals.

Dry dog food often contains a higher concentration of carbohydrates and essential nutrients, while wet food provides hydration and additional flavour. Although both dry and wet food are complete meals, and contain all the required essential nutrients, combining the two can help create a well-balanced diet that supports your dog's overall health.

Wet dog food makes mealtimes tastier and dry dog food helps to scrape away plaque and tartar from the teeth. Feeding a combination of wet and dry food can contribute to better dental health by promoting chewing and reducing the buildup of dental issues.

Give your canine companion the gift of a wholesome and delicious meal by choosing Harringtons wet dog food. Your dog will thank you with wagging tails and boundless energy!
