Call me weird/snobby/silly/whatever, but I like to feed my dogs canned food that looks 'real' as a treat and I'm thinking of adding it more regularly into their diets.

Can you please tell me what good quality canned foods look 'real'? And by real looking I mean things like Merrick or beneful (I don't, nor will I feed beneful wet but it does look 'good'). So that's what I mean.

I've tried google searching individual brands for pictures but I don't really find anything all that accurate. Thanks!

Even better if they aren't all that expensive.

Certainly not cheap, but Lotus uses actual beef shanks in their canned food. It looks a little paste-y right out of the can, but you don't get more real than a whole hunk of beef shank!

I think Evangers and Weruva look pretty good.

Natural Balance and Rachael Ray have wet food trays that are similar to the Beneful wet food trays but will give you more bang for your buck. The Rachael Ray ones are called Naturally Delish and the Natural Balance ones are called Delectable Delights.

I must admit, I get a tiny bit disappointed when I open a can and it's the pate' laugh out loud I really like the Earthborn wet food. It's grain free and comes in a good variety of protiens. They only have it in those tiny little plastic containers though like what Beneful comes in.

I ordered evangers and it just looks like the 'meatloaf' form??? You know, the standard big block that looks like... well, I'm not sure what to call its appearance. I got the green can. Is the other type they offer the one that looks 'real'?

I was super sad, lol.

Try Weruva, the Human Style. Awesome food, I feed it to both of my dogs and Tessie, aka Miss Picky, loves it!

Hmm, I was thinking of the ones that have the whole cuts of chicken thigh/etc in them, like the Merrick Wingaling thinking Maybe they don't make them anymore?

The Natural Choice flex trays are pieces in sauce, I know my friend feeds them to her Jack because thats all she'll eat thinking Not the most cost effective thing but the food itself is definitely a hit. I think thats what you mean by looking "real" way to go

I'm not sure what you mean by looking real, but 4 Health, tractor supply brand canned food have chunks, broth, and some carrots something like stew. (pretty decent ingredients and a good price)

Evangers has different kinds, the Signature Series has stews with meat chunks and veggies, the Grain Free Hand Packed has more whole meats.
