Feeding both Halo canned and dry formulas

Posted by & filed under Articles, Halo, Pet Care Advice.

by Dr. Donna Spector

I recommend that pets eat a combination of dry and canned food every day.  Their bodies are made of 75% water.  Some pets rarely drink enough water to support excellent hydration and organ function so I recommend at least 25% of a pet’s daily calories come from canned food.   

Should you want to mix Halo wet and dry food for your pet daily or occasionally, below are suggestions for balanced proportions providing extra hydration and variety without over feeding.

Note: Feeding both dry and canned Halo formulations is not necessary to meet a pet’s daily nutritional needs. This recommendation represents Dr. Donna Spector’s feeding preference for optimal pet health.
