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.
