Dry food for dogs
Dry dog food is the most popular type of food for dogs. It’s easy and the vast majority of dogs thrive on dry food. However, it is important to bear in mind that the quality of dry food can vary greatly from one dry food to another. All dry food in the Denmark meets the analytical requirement to contain the nutritional values your dog needs. However, this in no way means that the quality of dry food is the same. Far from it. It is important to look at the quality of the ingredients because it has a big impact on how easily absorbable the food is.
Difference between high and low quality dry dog food
Protein is an important part of a dog’s diet. Protein can be extracted from almost anything. However, if the protein is only extracted from chicken feet, for example, the absorption of the food will be very low.

A high quality dry food will often be more expensive to produce because ingredients are more expensive. But when you give your dog a high-quality dry food, you get more for your money. Absorbability will be higher and your dog will benefit from the nutrients.

Therefore, it’s a good idea to offer your dog dry food several times during the day, but otherwise make sure the dry food is packed in an airtight bag. You may also want to try a different variant. For example, if your dog won’t eat a dry food with fish, try one without. Or try a food with lots of flavor such as lamb and duck like Acana Grasslands. If your dog won’t eat dry food at all, there are other solutions. See for example our range of wet food and freeze-dried barf
