I feed canned on occasion but it's not something I buy just to give as part of a meal.

My cats eat canned once a day and dry once a day... because boy cats and moisture.

Dance eats raw. Mostly ground raw for convenience. But she gets some whole raw as well.

The Dobermans eat kibble. Right now they are on two different kinds of Acana, but that might change. Ripley has a crappy coat/skin (prone to a yeast thing, allergies, etc.) so I want to see if a different food will make a difference at all, eventhough he does fine on Acana otherwise. And Keira needs to go back to Grain Free as her body is not thriving on a grain inclusive diet like it was on GF. So we might go back to Pacifica, but I want to try something else first.

The Dobes always get water added to their kibble also. And often I'll add water to Dance's raw too, just to make sure she's getting enough (unlike what pro raw people say about dogs drinking less on raw, Dance seems to need just as much water or more on raw vs. kibble).

I also have been buying them canned food lately as more of a treat than anything else. They all split a can or two per week, just because they think it's the best thing ever. Sometimes if I have raw red meats thawed for Dance I will also give the Dobermans some (they can't do turkey or chicken though, so it has to be beef/bison/venison or the like).

My family feeds Crystal kibble. I'm hoping to feed my first 'personal' dog raw.

My dogs get half canned, half kibble in the morning and half raw, half kibble at night. I switch up brands a lot (perks of working at a pet food store), but for example...this morning they got PureVita GF Salmon dry mixed with Lotus Beef canned. For dinner they'll get PureVita GF Salmon dry mixed with Primal Pheasant raw.

The cat gets dry food (Earthborn, Fromm, or PureVita) in the evening, and canned food (Tiki Cat, Fussie Cat, or BFF) in the morning.

Primarily kibble, occasionally supplemented with raw or canned. If someone has an upset stomach they get canned chicken and pumpkin for a couple meals. Logan's eaten everything from chicken and pumpkn to FreshPet and Pet Botanics rolls over the last two weeks because he couldn't eat dry kibble after his tooth extraction, and he refused to eat just soaked kibble

I do add water to their kibble every meal.

A combination of ground raw, RMB's, and canned Merrick Before Grain. And lots of Zukes training treats and probably too many leftovers LOL.

I was doing whole prey model, but after cutting up one too many 15 lb turkeys into meal size portions for my 25 lb dog, I now feed ground raw. *shudder* at the turkey butchering memory...I love my raw supplier, their ground mixes are around $1.50 - $2.50 /lb, way cheaper than anything I could buy at the grocery store.

Prey model raw for my doglets.

My picky little cat eats Wellness Core kibble and whatever she catches. Yes she's wormed regularly.
