There are pros and cons to wet dog food.  Wet food is easier to digest, has a higher moisture content, is made from fresher ingredients, and is easier to chew than dry dog food. The downside to wet dog food is the shelf life and cost.

Wet food is easily digested making it ideal for dogs that are recovering from temporary illnesses. It is also beneficial for dogs that have had a surgery, such as spaying or neutering. Dogs that suffer from chronic digestive issues will tolerate wet food better than dry food. For dogs that suffer from dental problems, wet food is an easy to chew option that will cause less pain during meal times.

Due to the higher moisture content than its dry counterpart, wet food is ideal for dogs that live in extremely hot, dry climates. Wet food can help to replace vital moisture lost throughout the day.

Wet food is generally made from fresher ingredients than dry food. This can be both good and bad. The shorter shelf life means the food will spoil quickly and cannot be left out in a bowl for an extended period of time. The cost of wet food is typically higher than dry food and is not as easy to purchase in bulk due to shelf life. 

It is important to note, wet food is available in a canned option and a refrigerated option. Canned wet food has a longer shelf life than the refrigerated food and allows for bulk buying. Canned wet food is more likely to contain animal by-products than the refrigerated wet food option.
