What are the health differences between dry and wet food?
There isn't a lot of difference between the wet and dry scientifically formulated foods. The main difference is, of course, the moisture content. So, the wet food has a lot more moisture and water content compared to the dry food.
It is quite important for cats, who absorb a lot more moisture out of the dry kibbles, to have a little bit of wet food in their diet.
So, there's two examples of when you might change your diet, and your pet.
So, if your pet is overweight, you may want to look at a weight loss diet. If your pet is underweight, you might need to have a diet with a bit more energy in it, just to help increase and get to the ideal body condition.
The other one is when an animal changes life stages. When you move from a puppy to an adult, you have different nutritional requirements. For example, you may go from a puppy food to an adult food.
Similarly, when you animal moves from an adult until it's more senior years, nutritional requirements change. So that's when you would move from an adult to a mature, or a senior diet.
