Dehydrated Dog Food

Dogs are dependable. They're loyal, loving and true to their owners. But dogs also depend on you for many things, most importantly for food. What you feed your pup goes a long way to keep them healthy and happy. Whether it's a chewy dog treat, crunchy kibble or full meal – making the right choices can affect everything from dog joints to canine teeth. Pup parents have many choices when it comes to dog food. There's wet dog food, dry kibble, freeze dried dog food and dehydrated dog food. Dehydrated dog food is convenient for pet parents, but also provides dogs with the everyday nutrients they need. The best dehydrated dog food combines the fresh, whole foods found in a raw doggie diet with the convenience of dry kibble. Dehydrated dog food recipes are packed with protein, digestive enzymes, amino acids and essential fatty acids for higher energy, improved skin and coat health, better digestion and a healthy weight. Dehydrated dog food is minimally processed and provides a safe and healthy alternative to human grade dog food. By gently heating the ingredients, the dehydration process slowly cooks the proteins without compromising their nutrient value or their natural color and flavor that dogs love. Chewy carries top dehydrated dog food brands including Stella & Chewy's pet food, Primal pet food, The Honest Kitchen pet food and Blue Buffalo dog food. Dehydrated dog food comes in a variety of recipes and flavors, featuring different types of protein your precious pup will love. For example, NRG dehydrated dog food contains fresh raw ingredients, hand prepared and slowly dried to preserve natural vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Unlike dry dog food, wet dog food can't be left out for your dog to enjoy throughout the day, making it less convenient than dog kibble varieties. Dehydrated dog food offers many of the same benefits and flavors of wet dog food, but can be left in your dog's food bowl for them to graze and snack on when they need. It's also easier to store and travel with. When it comes to feeding your furry friend, shop Chewy for the best in dehydrated food for dogs.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dehydrated Dog Food

What is dehydrated dog food?

Dehydrated dog food is dog food that has been cooked at a low temperature to remove water without compromising natural nutrients and enzymes. It is a way to minimally process raw ingredients, removing pathogens and rendering the food shelf-stable for easy storage.

Is dehydrated food good for dogs?

Dehydrated food is good for dogs, provided you choose a complete and balanced formula without fillers and unnecessary ingredients. It is usually considered to be a step up from kibble due to the gentler processing involved. Many dehydrated foods retain more of the natural nutrients of the raw ingredients and can be a very healthy choice for your dog.

How long does dehydrated dog food last?

Dehydrated dog food can last from 12 months to 2 years when properly sealed stored in a cool, dry environment. Most dehydrated foods are fully shelf stable just like kibble and require no refrigeration. See the food package to determine exactly how long your dehydrated dog food will last on the shelf.

How do I serve dehydrated dog food?

Serve dehydrated dog food by adding water to reconstitute the formula. The package will have directions on how much water you will need to add. You can then serve it as-is for a complete and balanced meal, or use it as a topper for regular dry kibble.
