Default We don't want dry food

Woof woof🐶🐶

Can someone tell our mommy that we don't want dry food. No matter if she adds warn water, or formula to our wet food. We are not eating it.

Even if she tries to make a different bowl of dry food in the side. We just don't care for it. We will eat all our wet food in a minutes. So we decide that if our mommy keeps giving us dry food we wouldn't eat.

I been telling these two that they need their dry food in order to help them with their jaw and stuff. They just wouldn't eat it. What else can I do?!? How important is really dry food is on their diet?!?

Please help.

A good quality wet food is going to be superior to dry, so if you can I say stick with it

Our vet is adamant that dry food is not good for them because it is so processed and that a good quality canned food is much better than dry.
Very often, dry food has more corn or other "fillers."

Here is an article from Dog Food Advisor about the myth that dry food is good for teeth cleaning:

You should definately give them a good wet food. I personally have never given a fluff dry food. I homecook but do give Fromm wet (canned) when I don't have the time to cook for Zoe. Your fluffs will love BB canned food....I bet they eat it right away.

They eat their wet good real quick. But as soon as they notice the dry good inside. The walk away. 🐶☺🐶. Everybody in the store keep telling me to give them 90% of dry food. Bcz since they are only 10 weeks old they must have dry food so I felt like I have to give them dry food.

I've been told (by both breeder and vet) to give Maltese dry food because this particular breed has dental issues AND to brush their teeth almost daily. We've had Blizzard for about 2.5 weeks, and I give him a mix of dry food (Taste of the Wild) and wet food (Innova and Wellness). In the evening, I add more dry food, and mix it up so any leftover wet food touches the dry. He won't eat it unless I mix it. I do make sure it's more dry food than wet.

I feed Lucy dry and canned mixed. She likes it best if I use the really small bite kibble so that every single little piece is covered in the wet food.

J smith they told me the same but my pups don't like it. Their food will be there all day and they only eat when they are starving.

Lucy mom I do the same but they will still not eat it. I have two flavor chicken and lamb to mix it up little bit but no luck here.
