Is there a low calorie wet dog food?

Post by Ndent » Thu Apr 25, 2019 8:12 am

Our cav king charles spaniel is a little overweight so we are exercising her more and slowly cutting back on her food, we usually feed her twice a day a mixture of dry food (Arden Grange low calorie) and mix it with 1/3 or 1/2 a tray of cesar (usually meat and veg in gravy).

We was wondering what wet food tray/pouches were lowest in calories, if there is such a thing?

Have you considered making your own wet topping? I had a senior dog once that needed a little gravy or a few scoops of wet food mixed in to the dry food before he would eat. I use to make him two types of gravy, a thick one and a more watered down one. For fewer calories, you can try boiling up some chicken and using the broth from it as a base. (Avoid the store bought broth that can be too high in sodium). When it is boiling, you can add in a little turmeric and some peas or other diced veggies for flavor. Take that broth (you can leave a few small chicken chunks in with the veggies as a bonus) and divide it up into small containers. You can use it as a healthy topper to add to the dry kibble. It will allow you to control the ingredients and calories in it while still making it tasty.
