I am hoping that you as a reader are aware of 2 types of dog food? If not, then here it goes; dry dog food and wet or canned dog food. You should leave your dog to decide if he wants dry dog food(kibbles) or canned dog food. In India there are some best dry dog food in India which can be fed to your dog when you are out for a day or two. Do note that as a recommendation I could say is if your dog does drink a good amount of water then dry dog food can easily fit his meal. If your dog does not drink water in considerable amount then a dry dog food is best avoided.
Pros and Cons of dry dog food
- Most convenient type of food
- Storage is not a problem
- Does not get spoiled easily
- You can fill the bowl for the entire day
- Does not provide enough moisture to dog as a wet food
- Old dogs find it hard to eat
- Smaller breed dogs also find it hard to eat
- Got less fat content and more of carbohydrates
I would generally recommend home made dog food against artificial foods even though they could be the best dry dog food in India. Well at times even for me it makes it difficult and I have to leave my dogs alone for a day and in these cases I want my dog to be fed properly and get the best nutrition. I usually tell my friends or neighbor to come home and feed my dogs with one of the dry dog foods which I suggest them. I have segregated some list which might help you in case of situations where you want to go out for a day or two.
