Wet dog food, normally referred to as canned dog food, is a great source of energy and nutrition for dogs. Wet dog food has the following advantage:

Greater water content: Wet dog food is particularly valuable for hydration. If your dog doesn’t drink enough or you live in a dry, hot climate, wet dog food can keep your dog properly hydrated, according to PetMD. Even so, you should still make sure fresh water is readily available for your pup.

Helping dogs who have trouble chewing: Dogs can have issues chewing hard kibble for a variety of reasons, such as loss of teeth, misaligned jaws, or even a uniquely smallmouth. In these cases, canned dog food may be much easier for them to manage.

The smell: Older dogs lose some sense of smell, and therefore might not eat their dry food with the same gusto or interest that they used to. Wet foods normally have a richer scent and flavour that could spur an increase in appetite.

Satiety: The higher moisture content in canned food often helps a dog feel full. This may be useful in a weight management program for those dogs who appear to have an endless appetite.

Wet dog food feeding suggestion
When feeding your dog with 400g canned dog food, veterinarians suggest the following feeding guidelines:

A 5-pound dog needs 3/8s of a can per day.
A 10-pound dog needs 3/4s of a can per day.
A 20-pound dog needs 1 + 1/8s of a can per day.
A 40-pound dog needs 1 + 3/4s of a can per day.
A 60-pound dog needs 2 + 1/4s of a can per day.
An 80-pound dog needs 2 + 1/2s of a can per day.
A 100-pound dog needs 3 + 1/4s of a can per day.

This suggestion is suitable for most of the wet dog food, but the dog owner should take the dog food manufacturer advice as the priority.

Additional tips: If your dog is extremely active, you may need to add extra food to account for the calories burned.

An unopened can of dog food can remain fresh for years when stored in a cool and dry location, according to the “best by” dates marked on the container. Once opened, canned food should be stored in the refrigerator for no longer than seven days. If you do not think you will use the whole can in that amount of time, freeze single-serve portions and thaw them on an as-needed basis.

Canned food that has been opened and left at room temperature should be discarded after four hours. And the bowl should be cleaned before refilling.
