Dog food is food that has been specially designed for dogs and other canines of the same species. Dogs are classified as omnivores with a carnivorous preference. They have carnivore-like sharp, pointed teeth and shorter gastrointestinal tracts, making them better suited to eating meat than vegetables, but they also have 10 genes for starch and glucose digestion, as well as the ability to produce amylase, an enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates into simple sugars, which carnivores lack. Dogs developed the capacity to live with people in agricultural cultures, surviving on human scraps.

Dogs have evolved over thousands of years to subsist on a range of meals, including meat and non-meat scraps and leftovers from human living, with research showing that dogs’ capacity to digest carbohydrates quickly is a major distinction between dogs and wolves.

Dry food processing is popular in the pet food business because it is a cost-effective approach to offer a steady supply of feed in a variety of flavors. It is cost effective, energy efficient, and enables for huge volumes of feed to be used.

The method of extrusion is used to create dog kibble. A barrel, helical screws, and a die make up a basic extruder (tool to cut and shape food). Because feed components are solid at room temperature, the extrusion process requires a temperature of above 150 degrees Celsius, which may be accomplished by using steam, hot water, or other heat sources to soften or melt the combination and enable fluidity through the barrel. The high pressure used to the mixture during the extrusion process compels it to pass through the die before exiting the extruder entirely, where it is trimmed to size by a revolving fly knife.


Unfortunately, the extrusion process denatures some of the food’s nutritious components. Taurine deficiency has been discovered in dogs and cats given commercial extruded diets. Taurine, which is abundant in most whole meats, whether raw or cooked, but is depleted in extruded diets, is not typically considered a necessary nutrient for dogs. Taurine insufficiency might also be caused by the consumption of low-taurine rendered, highly processed meats. Taurine is currently artificially supplied back into the diet after processing in the manufacturing of most commercial pet food, regardless of the reason.

A solid or soft-sided container is generally used to package wet or canned dog food. Wet food has a moisture content of 60-78 percent, which is substantially greater than dry or semi-moist food. Commercially sterile canned food (boiled during canning) is available; however, some wet foods may not be. The method of retorting, which involves steam sterilization at 121 degrees Celsius, is used to sterilize the food. On a dry matter basis (a metric that excludes moisture), a given wet meal will frequently be richer in protein or fat than a similar kibble; but, due to the canned food’s high moisture content, a larger volume of canned food must be served to fulfill the dog’s requirements. Grain gluten and other protein gels can be used to make fake meaty pieces that appear like genuine meat in wet dog food. This meal is typically given to senior dogs or pups.
