With so many variations available, it can sometimes be difficult to know which dry dog food is best for your pup.
To narrow your options down, consider a few things first, including:
- Your dog’s breed – is your dog a small, medium or large breed?
- Their age – are they a puppy, adult or senior dog?
- If they have any dietary or veterinary requirements – i.e., weight control or a sensitive tummy.
We love talking to our customers to find out more about how we can help identify the best possible diet for your pet – if you have any concerns get in touch with our experts today.
As expected, your dog’s diet can have a massive impact on their weight – but there are some other issues you might not suspect are caused or made worse by the food they’re eating.
If you’re taking frequent trips to the vet for weight related issues, dry or itchy skin, bad breath or excessive moulting and nothing seems to be improving, the solution could be something as simple as a conversation about your dog’s diet.
A sensible diet plan could be just the thing your furry friend needs to alleviate or even eradicate the symptoms they’ve been experiencing.

For decades, dry dog food was the only commercially available option on the market, which proves that dogs can lead long, happy, and healthy lives on dry food alone.
Nowadays, dog food is made with better ingredients and more nutrients to aid growth and development. Dry dog food contains a certain percentage of protein and fats, which allows your furry friend to be at its healthiest – without the need for additional supplements.
Dogs that suffer from dental problems are often put on a diet of wet food, which is more palatable as it’s easier to chew and digest, whereas dogs with medical conditions need dry food to help them stay in shape.
Both wet and dry dog food are good options – it’s simply a matter of finding out which is best for your dog’s needs. By all means, seek advice from your vet and ask them which they recommend giving to your pet.
Some dogs are always hungry and on the lookout for more, whilst others don’t have much of an appetite, particularly when they’re faced with a bowl of dry dog food (or kibble).
If your dog won’t eat dry food, they may just be a fussy eater or not hungry. Alternatively, it could be a sign that they have an underlying health issue, in which case, you should definitely consult with your vet to rule out any potential medical issues or allergies.
Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to encourage your canine to eat dry dog food – simple things like:
- Switching up meal times.
- Making mealtimes more exciting, i.e. using a puzzle feeder dish or Kong toy.
- Limiting meals – if they don’t eat their food, take it away and offer it again later on.
- Reducing portion size.
- Opting for dry dog food that’s kind to sensitive stomachs.
Whilst there are hundreds of pet food options on the market today, knowing which is right for your furry companion is no easy feat. Here at Pet Express, we supply only the best dry dog food in the UK, and will gladly advise you on the most suitable feed for your canine.
As a general rule of thumb, you need something age-appropriate (e.g. puppy, adult, or senior), labelled as “complete”, and suitable for your pet’s dietary requirements.
It’s also worth paying attention to the manufacturing brand, and checking that they’re part of the Pet Food Manufacturer’s Association (PFMA). There are 95 members in total – accounting for 90% of the overall market – all of whom adhere to strict legislation and produce nutritional dry pet food.
We stock all the big names – including Hunters, Natures Menu, Orijen, and Royal Canin, as well as our own brand. Whilst they’re all made from premium ingredients, we guarantee some of the most competitive prices around – meaning you can give your dog the nutrients it needs, without breaking the bank.
All caring dog owners want to ensure they give their pooch everything they need for a healthy diet, right?
Generally, the healthiest dry dog food has a high meat content. Products with dried chicken and turkey are an excellent source of protein – essential for tissue growth and repair. To ensure your dog has a balanced diet, you’ll want to choose a dry dog food that contains a mixture of animal and plant-derived proteins.
Unless you have been advised by your vet, it’s not recommended to put your dog on a vegan diet. If your furry companion has a sensitive stomach, a grain-free dry dog food with a high protein content is ideal. It substitutes corn, rice, and wheat with other carbohydrates, such as potatoes, and helps your dog to maintain a healthy gut.
