Default Is there a difference?

Okay, so I have been looking at canned food recently and was looking into the Evanger's line. They have 100% meat canned food like duck, chicken, beef etc. The only ingredients are the meat source and water.

My question is, is there a difference between their canned chicken and the canned chicken for people that I can buy at the grocery store? They are both just chicken and water and I think the grocery store canned chicken has a small amount of salt/seasoning and broth.

Also, I was under the impression that it is not good to give cooked meat without a calcium/phosphorus supplement? Is it acceptable to add a small amout of just canned meat with kibble? These cans are different than for example EVO's 95% variety's because these are just meat and don't have any added vitamins or minerals.

If you're adding the canned food to kibble I would imagine that the 100***37; meat would be better than the 95% varieties.

I'm not sure if there is a difference between their canned dog food and canned chicken in a grocery store. You should email them and ask!

In my experience, the canned 100% meat foods are not complete, and are meant more as "treat" type meals, or in suppliment to kibble.

The biggest difference between them and canned people meat is mostly salt content (we like things WAY TOO salty!) which you'd want to avoid in dog food (well, in general really).
