PET Q&A Dog Q&A
 
Q1: Can dry pet food be used as a pet’s primary diet?

A:
Yes, dry pet food can be used as a pet’s primary diet because the calories, nutritional elements and flavors of the pet food are specially formulated by professional veterinary doctors or R&D team. The advantage of dry pet food is that you can choose different formulas designed for specific pet health, such as skin and coat care. The good quality protein and dietary fibers in the pet food are also very helpful in promoting your pet’s digestion. Human food is not suitable for a pet’s digestion and could cause potential hazard to its health. Therefore, it’s safer and healthier to feed dry pet food to your pet.
