A shown in the picture below, the average caloric content of a cup of dog food is markedly different for dry and wet foods
Wet dog food is generally more nutritious, low-carb, and low-calorie, when compared to dry dog food. Canned food tends to have almost two times as much animal fat and protein, both of which are good for a dog's health. And an ounce of dry dog food contains nearly four times as many calories as an ounce of wet food — around 97 calories and 25 calories, respectively.
Though numerous low-calorie/low-carb weight control dry foods exist, it is hard to beat the calorie and carb counts of wet dog food, primarily due to the high moisture content of canned food. However, some veterinarians will prescribe a particular type of dry food, depending on a dog's health issues, so if weight gain (or loss) is a concern, it is best to check with a vet before putting a dog on any particular diet. Sudden weight loss or gain may indicate another underlying health problem.
