Canned Food

Canned foods come in second on the list for digestibility for dogs and cats. Some pet owner choose to feed canned as an alternative to raw or as a means to add variation to their pet’s diet. Although canned food is cooked it is less processed than dry food and is made with fresh meats and produce. The many benefits of canned include: real meat (no meals or binders), aids in digestion, weight management, helps with allergies, single protein options, Low-grain or Grain-free, available in a variety of textures (stews, pate, sliced, shredded and minced),  low-carbohydrate, great palatability for finicky and senior pets, long shelf-life, easy portability and provides moisture to the diet unlike dry kibble. Some believe that canned food attributes to dental problems but it is actually the starches and sugars from dry foods that lead to plaque and tartar.  We recommend natural chews like raw bones and bully sticks for dogs and cow tails or duck feet for cats to help clean their teeth and help keep them white.  There are lots of brands to choose from with a wide range of quality, some as much as 100% meat and others with a variety of fruits and vegetables.  Read the label and be certain that the ingredients are NAMED meats like chicken or beef, not “meat” and that they contain no by-products.  The less carbohydrate, the better for your pet.  At WAGS, we stock some of the best canned choices available on the market to meet any budget.

Testimonials

On 8/1/16, we drove 1 1/4 hrs from Western Ma to make some purchases & hope to see Susan, Kenny`s assistant & dog trainer. Susan spent well over an hour giving us pointers on how to manage our 5 month old PWD, Brewster. She was so helpful & between her & Kenny ( Wags owner ) we had some good laughs & very pleasant experience. We will be heading back from time to time for supplies & would highly recommend this store for your pet needs. And for Susan, we would highly recommend employing her for any training issues you have. She was wonderful. Thank you again, Susan!
