Dry Dog Food
A range of dog kibble for balanced nutrition
One of the keys to a long and healthy canine life is choosing a balanced, varied nutrition for your dog. There are a range of dry dog food options tailored to meet your dog's age, breed and lifestyle needs. With the huge selection of dry food, mixed food and supplementary food for dogs available, it can be difficult to make the right decision, so here at zooplus we try to help with choosing the best nutrition offering everything essential to your dog's health and wellbeing.
Is dry dog food the right choice for my canine?
Dry food or wet food - we can help you make the right selection!
The range of dog food available nowadays is greater than ever before, meaning that there is a perfect dog food for everyone somewhere on the market. How do you go about finding the best dry dog food for your pet? It is not only the main features of the dog food that are important, but also the ingredients themselves. Dry dog food and wet dog food with high-quality ingredients will offer your dog plenty of vital nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Naturally, both types of food offer advantages and disadvantages, so you should consider both your own needs and your dog's when making a decision. As a rule, dogs can get all the nutrients they need through either type of food, so you can rest easy as long as you have found a food that your dog enjoys and digests!
What are the benefits of dry food for dog and owner?
Dry dog food is available either in uniform pieces or as a mix of different components, with pellets, biscuits and kibble forming the uniform dry food and flake mixes being the primary mixture options. Dry dog food contains a broad variety of nutrient-rich ingredients, as well as having a maximum residual water content of 14%. This low moisture content ensures that dry dog food can be stored for a long period of time without going off. Dry dog food is generally more energy-dense than the same amount of wet food, meaning it can be fed in smaller quantities. Dry dog food can also help to remove dental plaque, offering mechanical teeth cleaning thanks to its hard consistency. Another advantage of dry food is that it is much easier and cleaner to serve. However, if you choose to feed your dog a dry food diet, you need to be sure that your dog is always taking on enough fluids through other means.
The key advantages of dry dog food:
- Can be stored for a particularly long time
- Has a higher energy density than the same amount of wet food
- Supports mechanical tooth cleaning and removes plaque
- Easy and clean to serve
Dry dog food varieties for special nutritional needs - what is right for my dog?
Grain-free dog food - for natural nutrition
Grain-free dry dog food is a great alternative for dogs with grain allergies or intolerances. Kibble without grain is also ideal for owners wanting to feed their dogs a food close to the natural diet of a wolf in the wild, as these grain-free dog food dishes tend to be high in meat as well as lacking in grains, for species-appropriate nutrition.
Single protein dry food - for dogs with protein intolerance
Some dogs suffer with allergies or intolerance to commonly-used protein sources, meaning they require a specialist single source protein dog food. Here at zooplus we offer a wide range of single protein dry dog food options, as well as offering single protein wet dog food and snacks.
Diabetic dogs - food rich in protein
Dogs with diabetes should avoid carbohydrates, as they are a form of sugar. The protein content of diabetic dry dog food is particularly high, in a similar way to grain free dog food. This diabetic dog food is suitable for supporting essential insulin injections and you should always seek your vet's advice before use.
Renal dog food diets - for dogs with kidney problems
Some dogs suffer with impaired kidney function or renal insufficiency, requiring a need for dog food with a low protein content and low phosphorus content, to help prevent the kidneys from being overloaded. High-quality renal dog food is available in a range of varieties in our online shop.
What about health supplements for dogs?
For stomach and gastrointestinal issues
If your dog suffers with digestive issues, a specialist stomach supplement can be a great choice for offering relief. It contains gentle ingredients and carefully selected additives to help regulate the gut and digestive function. We also offer a range of special stomach and digestion dog food that is not only ideal for your dog's metabolism, but also cares for a balanced intestinal flora.
For canine joint and bone health
zooplus offers a special range of mobility supplements, which contain special ingredients known to support mobility and natural joint function. We also offer a range of joint and bone care products.
Supplements for healthy skin and coat
Coat care is an essential part of keeping your dog looking and feeling great. Your dog's skin and coat condition is reliant on nutrition from the inside, so zooplus offers a broad selection of supplements that help to keep coat and skin healthy. There is also a range of dog food for healthy skin and coat that can be fed in addition to your dog's normal diet.
