You're probably better off sticking with a qood-quality dry food. It's better for the dog's teeth, and is a little friendlier on the wallet.

It's just an (very) occasional treat in our house.

Go to www.dogfoodanalysis.com for reviews of both dry and canned food. The best diet is to feed raw.

It would be best to stick with dry food, canfood can rott their teeth, and could spoil them from not liking dry food anymore.

Canned foods are fine. I feed my dogs both dry and wet foods. Some say the dry food is good for their teeth. I did alot of research on foods and found Blue Buffalo food is if not the best, one of the best foods. It has all natural ingredients, fruits and vegetables, no by-products and is not mostly made of corn. My dogs have reacted great to this food (I'm feeding 3 american staffs) The only complaint would be the cost, but my dogs are well worth the cost. (av. big bag costs $44.00) They also make the canned food that I feed a few times a week mixed with the dry food for their dinner. Hope this helps : )

I raised German Shepherds for 11 years and always avoided canned food, where most recalls come from. It usually contains more fat than a dog (or cat) needs, and the VMA says dry is all they actually need. Many canned foods contain "meat byproducts" and that usually means stuff that you would avoid giving to your pets.
