Two Worlds, One Bowl: The Benefits and How-tos of Mixed Feeding





Both types of feed have their pros and cons, which is why pet owners are increasingly choosing to combine them. This is a good solution that can bring many benefits.





Combining both wet and dry pet foods offers a balanced approach many pet parents appreciate. This blend capitalizes on the unique benefits of each type, ensuring our furry friends get the best of both worlds. Here is some info on how to combine the two most effectively.





Serving It Right: Royal Canin's Approach to Portion Control





Royal Canin's tailored nutrition often provides breed-specific portion recommendations. Given the caloric differences between wet and dry foods, transitioning isn't as straightforward as swapping equal measures. Hence, when considering mixed feeding, it's essential to refer to the guidelines on the dog and cat food packages for accurate portion control.





From First Bite to Full Transition: The Gentle Approach





Switching a pet's diet, be it a dog or cat, requires a gentle touch. While our four-legged companions might seem like they have iron stomachs, they can be surprisingly delicate when it comes to dietary changes.





To ensure their digestive systems cope well, it's advised to introduce new foods progressively. Starting with a sprinkle of the new diet on the first day and gradually increasing its proportion over a week can make the transition smoother. By the seventh day, your pet should comfortably enjoy the final mix of the new diet.





Mixing Meals: The Wet-Dry Combo on Your Terms





There's no strict rule to serve wet and dry foods together. Dry food, with its longer shelf life and milder scent, is perfect for leaving out during daytime snacking sessions for both dogs and cats. Come evening, you can treat them to a serving of wet food, ensuring they get a varied and enjoyable diet.





Remember, whether it's for our playful doggos or curious cats, a thoughtful approach to feeding goes a long way in ensuring their health and happiness.

Mix it up! Royal Canin: Boosting Feline Health with Mixed Feeding





Why is a Mixed Feeding routine particularly key for your cat’s health? For starters, cats tend to prefer wet food, which better stimulates their sense of smell and boosts their appetite. Wet food not only offers exciting delights to your cat' senses, but it also offers other health advantages such as hydration, fewer calories, and greater comfort for cats with oral sensitivities. Still, dry food presents important advantages too. Please see table below with breed specific dry food features.





Royal Canin's Breed-Specific Dry Food Formulas & Their Focus
British Shorthair Unique muscle needs, cardiac, bone and joint sensitivities
Persian Coat health, hairball control, digestive sensitivities
Maine Coon Skin and coat, cardiac, bone and joint sensitivities
Siamese Coat support, ideal bodyweight, digestive sensitivities
Sphynx Energy needs, unique skin, cardiac sensitivities

Hydration Station: Royal Canin's Recipe for Refreshment





Mixing wet and dry food for your pets offers a bunch of perks. For starters, wet food is a sneaky way to boost hydration in both dogs and cats. But let's be real, it's just a piece of the hydration puzzle. Always ensure there's a steady flow of crisp, cool water available.





And a pro tip? Place it in a shady spot to keep it refreshing. It's a good idea to have a couple of water dishes around, just in case one takes a tumble during your absence. And speaking of water hygiene, watch out for those mischievous furballs that love to give their muddy paws a quick rinse in the bowl. Keep it clean, and keep it filled!





Royal Canin's wet food range is nutritionally complete and a perfect complement to their dry kibbles. By mixing wet and dry foods, you can add variety and texture to your dog and cat's diet ensuring optimal health and vitality.
