The Dog Food is one of the Items available in The Long Dark.


  • Can of wet dog food. Smells bad, but eating it is better than starving. Probably.
  • Can Opener is recommended for opening. (That way you get the full 400 calories) It can still be opened by "Smashing" open, but you will lose some of the food.
  • Yes you can eat this. I know, it's gross.
  • You can use dog food as a decoy against wolves (needs checking).
  • Avoid eating this when possible. Every time you eat it there is a chance of Food Poisoning!


  • One possible reason this item gives food poisoning is because (in real life) the standards for pet food is lower then the standards for human food meaning its not as clean or well made as our food is.
