Freeze-dried and dehydrated diets are relatively newer to the pet food scene. They offer many of the benefits of a raw, whole food diet while also being more convenient. Great for supplementing a dry food diet. These diets require adding water, which adds overall moisture to content to the diet. What are the pros and cons of feeding canned food?
Similar benefits to raw. Whole food, less processed, easy to digest. Very high meat content.
Great for traveling. Camping, hiking, overnight hotel stays and more. Can be used interchangeably or in addition to raw as a more convenient alternative.
High moisture content. Once reconstituted, offers similar moisture content to that of raw or canned diets.
Extra processing can mean extra expense. Convenience comes at a price and freeze dried diets can be more expensive to feed than raw.
Must add water. Cannot be fed dry, so it takes a few minutes to reconstitute making it slightly less convenient.
