Pugs like to eat. So, it’s really important to make sure that yours is eating the right thing. They need the right food to keep their potential allergies, skin irritation, weight gain, and digestive health on track. To help you find the best dog food for Pugs, we researched some of the bestselling products and put together our Pug dog food review. Before we get to it, let’s look at important features you need to know when shopping.
Food Type: Most of the foods we chose are dry kibbles, which should be suitably shaped for a Pug. Small and easy to chew. That said, we did find a wet dog food that brought a lot to the table, too.
Dog Age: Puppies have different nutritional requirements than adult dogs. Think about it: they grow so fast, they need a little something extra! So, we made sure to include a few foods just for them along with the best adult foods.
Package Size: Pugs are small so they don’t need the volume of food that, say, a Great Dane would. If you have a picky Pug, start with a smaller size so you know if she’s going to like it.
Dehydrated: Dehydrated foods are meant to be mixed with water before they’re served. They’re usually made with fresh, whole ingredients that are dehydrated using special techniques. Dehydrated foods are great, but we went with non-dehydrated ones for our best list.
Main Protein: Proteins vary from lamb to chicken to beef! Plenty to choose from. A word about meat meals - they’re not bad! They’re just a condensed, nutrient-packed form of real meat. By-product meals, though, should be avoided.
Made In: All of the foods we chose for our reviews were made in the USA. Sometimes special ingredients are sourced from elsewhere, but it’s worth mentioning that none of these options have any ingredients that came from China.
Like we said, Pugs like to eat. Feed them right. Now that you have a better idea of what your Pug needs and what to look for when choosing the right food, let’s get to our reviews. If you’re in a hurry, make sure you check out the top pick and budget pick first to get a better idea of what’s out there. Then, you’ll find the top products that round out our list. All right, let’s get to it!
