Dog Food Selection

The Benefits of Beneful Wet Food

In 2001, Beneful brand dog food was introduced to the market, its sales expanding to what 14 million dogs now call dinner each year. Their dry foods consist of eight flavors, while their wet food selection boasts a staggering 20. Choosing which is better for your pet could just be a matter of your dog’s taste pallet, as all of Beneful’s products list meat as their first ingredient. But if there had to be a choice, wet food might be the better option, as wet food is easily consumed by puppies learning to wean from their mother, as well as senior dogs who may be missing some teeth as they begin to age.

Although Beneful does not make specific wet food for puppies, their wet food selection will offer the same nutrition that would accommodate an adult dog’s diet. 3 oz. of Beneful wet food can replace approximately 1/4 cup Healthy Puppy dry food. Also, if your puppy shows a lack of interest in eating solid foods, you can mix dry and wet food together to entice them to eat. At around one year of age, you should transition your adolescent dog from puppy food to an adult dog food, such as Beneful Originals. However, should you only choose to feed your dog wet food, no such transition will be needed- which could be seen as a benefit.

When selecting your Beneful wet food, you may want to have your canine try out the wet food variety pack- this way your furry friend can have a taste of all the flavors offered- letting you determine your pet’s favorite one. There are two variety packs to choose from, with the first sample pack containing beef, chicken, and salmon. For a more exotic taste, the second variety pack offers flavors such as: Tuscan, Romana, and Mediterranean style. These can all be purchased for the very reasonable price of $6.97.

High Priced Foods Not Always Best

I’ve done some serious searching for the best dog food, and, at first, I was surprised with the results I found. If you are looking for some advice when it comes to the best dog food then this Facebook article should shed some light for you. I love my dog and want to make sure that he has a great life. I have gone great lengths to find the food that is best for my friend. There was a point where I was trying out expensive brands that cost as much as $25 for a weeks worth of kibble. I switched his diet slowly and did everything perfect to make sure there was a smooth changeover. It was puzzling to come to the realization that all of these foods were messing up my dog’s digestive system. Each brand would seem great, but after a couple of weeks, I noticed that my dog was having constant bowel problems. One week I was low on food and money while changing over to a new job so my father bought my dog a large bag of Beneful’s original dog food. I was worried that my dog wouldn’t like it because it wasn’t the expensive food that he was used to. Amazingly enough, my dog went straight for the food like he hadn’t eaten in days even though he just had some food earlier that day. After 4 days of using Beneful, my dog’s digestive problems seemed to clear up completely. I went back to the store to try some of the treats. I picked up a bag of the Healthy Smiles and also some of the Baked Delight Snackers. Unlike other treats from Petco, my boy loved both kinds of snacks. I also began to mix in some wet food, and found that he liked the Chopped Meals a lot. I began to wonder if the expensive dog foods were too rich for my dog’s stomach. After talking to my mom we both agreed that the high priced foods were good, but the ingredients were too rich for many dog’s stomaches. I believe that Beneful has realized this, and it can be shown with the long-running record that the company has when it comes to a dog’s nutritional requirements. It was shocking to think that after spending all that time looking for the most expensive foods available, that the moderately priced food ended up being the best for my pet. It makes sense after thinking about the low price since Purina has sold so much dog food for so long that they can afford to sell for less. I guess the lower cost is proof that they deliver quality like the brand promises.
