List Rules Any wet dog food that comes in a can

The best canned dog food brands are those high-end wet dog food brands filled with only the best ingredients. You won't find a lot of grains, chemicals or fillers in these best wet dog food brands but you will find healthy meats, usually in a gravy, primed for delicious meal for pups, big and small. In terms of people food, these best canned dog foods are the filet mignon of their world.

Since dogs can't come out and tell their humans what kind of dog food they'd like to eat, it's up to the owners to select a top canned dog food to provide their four-legged friends with the best nutrition possible. Many grocery store brands simply didn't make this cut for containing meat byproducts, filler grains and vegetables. While these ingredients are cheaper than the all-meat dog food varieties, they are less nutritious. Furthermore, many cheaper dog food brands contain a slew of chemicals and artificial flavors, again which are cheaper but not necessarily better for dogs.

To make the cut on this list, these brands had to feature real meat as the main ingredient plus pass a list of other criteria, such as having a good protein to fat percentage. Some of the best natural dog food brands such as Newman's Own Organics, Science Diet, Wellness Core, Buffalo Blue and Natura Evo all made the cut as did Against the Grain, Halo Spot's Stew, Natural Balance and Canidee Pet Food. Only a handful available in supermarkets met those stipulations, such as Cesar Gourmet, Iams and Eukanuba. Sorry, Pedigree and Purina, your dog food isn't bad, but it simply isn't as good as these top wet dog food brands.

While it's important to select a good dog food brand for your pups, selecting the right food for your dog takes a little more attention. If your dog has an allergy, you might need a grain-free dog food or if your dog is young or old, you might need a puppy food or senior food, respectively. These best canned dog foods are not cheap but they are the best available and while your dog might not be able to thank you for making a good choice, they'll love you for giving them yummy, nutritious food.
